Book #127: I Loved it! AMAZING!

Book #127: The 33 Strategies of War by Robert Greene.

This is a great book, definitely relevant and valuable and appropriate for college students to be discussing with each other and with their professor.

I have no intention on ever giving it back to the student who assigned it to me (just kidding) (not kidding, Frank, not kidding), and I am seriously considering assigning this book in future classes.

This book is broken into 33 Chapters, each with their own "Strategy of War" including amazingly readable and concise examples from all over history. I don't think I've ever read a book before that had  stories about Metternich, Napoleon, Cassius Clay, Theodore Roosevelt, Machiavelli, Gandhi, Nizam al-Mulk, Patton AND Hitchcock.

 I delighted in every story and every example, and I will absolutely be reading  other books by this same author, including 48 Laws of Power and The Art of Seduction.

Here are screenshots so you can see how awesome this book is.

I found a free copy online:
