Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karrie | 2/18/2014

    " This book prepares yopu for battle with any enemy, competitive colleague and for plain fun. Patience is its virtue and the book must be studied, not read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessie Connatser | 2/15/2014

    " Finally got around to finishing this. It's been coming since May 2011. I was surprised at the language and paralleled ideas used in the book that mirrored MCDP-1; words such as fluidity and speed and space and time were prevalent throughout. It was somewhat difficult for me to get through this because of those facts considering I just finished TBS and spent the last 6 months fully engrossed. But the historical parallels and stories were always informative and I enjoyed his presentation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arjun Ravichandran | 2/11/2014

    " Not on the same level as '48 Laws ', but still valuable and packed with insight. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 2/3/2014

    " Excellent book about war theories and how they apply to current situations. Lots of historical commentary on Napoleon, Hannibal, Alexander the Great, etc. Towards the end, you start to see some of the same people and situations being discussed again. It is very long and if you read all the quotes, it really takes a while to get through this. I think it would have been a better book if it were more concise and didn't reiterate so much in each of the strategies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 1/14/2014

    " The first chapter is life-changing. All the rest is just plain excellent information. Applicable in war and in life. But I be redundant? "
