"A brilliant distillation" (Retired Reader on Amazon.com)
"The book is a great synthesis of a lot of different information. Even if you don't agree with some of the author's conclusions, his clear presentation of Boyd's theories are worth the price. If you are new to this topic, you can't go wrong starting here. If you've already spent time with the OODA loop, I think you'll still find this helpful." (DDC on Amazon.com)
From the Author
I particularly enjoyed our study of Clausewitz, and with the guidance of David Betz, my tutor, and a Canadian whose background was rather similar to mine, I began to explore the ways in which military strategy could be adapted to the problem of counter-insurgency. For my thesis, I drove to Quantico, Virginia, and steeped myself in the papers of John Boyd, a self-taught genius who evolved from a fighter pilot to a master of grand strategy, and whose writings have drastically changed the thinking of military forces around the world.
David urged me to publish the result, so here it is.
