Brilliant distillations of the strategies of war—and the subtle social game of everyday life—by the bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power

Robert Greene’s groundbreaking guides, The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, and  Mastery, espouse profound, timeless lessons from the events of history to help readers vanquish an enemy, ensnare an unsuspecting victim, or become the greatest in your field. In The 33 Strategies of War, Greene has crafted an important addition to this ruthless and unique series.

Spanning world civilizations, synthesizing dozens of political, philosophical, and religious texts and thousands of years of violent conflict, The 33 Strategies of War is a comprehensive guide to the subtle social game of everyday life informed by the most ingenious and effective military principles in war. Structured in Greene’s trademark style, The 33 Strategies of War is the I-Ching of conflict, the contemporary companion to Sun Tzu’s The Art of War.

Abundantly illustrated with examples from history, including the folly and genius of everyone from Napoleon to Margaret Thatcher, Shaka the Zulu to Lord Nelson, Hannibal to Ulysses S. Grant, as well as movie moguls, Samurai swordsmen, and diplomats, each of the thirty-three chapters outlines a strategy that will help you win life’s wars. Learn the offensive strategies that require you to maintain the initiative and negotiate from a position of strength, or the defensive strategies designed to help you respond to dangerous situations and avoid unwinnable wars. The great warriors of battlefields and drawing rooms alike demonstrate prudence, agility, balance, and calm, and a keen understanding that the rational, resourceful, and intuitive always defeat the panicked, the uncreative, and the stupid. An indispensable book, The 33 Strategies of War provides all the psychological ammunition you need to overcome patterns of failure and forever gain the upper hand.

Better Than Garlic To date I’ve read everything Robert Greene has in print and, much to my surprise, this turned out to be the most useful volume of all. Greene’s other books were immensely helpful for clearing my head of cobwebs since, along with everyone else, I’m forced to negotiate our brave new world of cutthroat tactics and social Darwinists, while trying to keep a roof over my head. Without going into detail, let me simply say The 33 Strategies of War taught me exactly what I needed to know in order to…

One of the best books out there . . . I’ve never been very interested in history, certainly not military history, but kept hearing good things about this book. I enjoyed some of Greene’s other work, so I thought I would give this a try. I’m glad I did . . .This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is an in depth exploration of strategy, applicable to military, political, relational, business, and other wars. Each topic includes at least two stories from history or literature to illustrate the point, keys to…

Captivating Beyond Belief If You Like Military History The 33 Strategies of War is just an unbelievably entertaining and captivating book. My review is for the CD version (10 hours on 8 CDs), but they’ve put hardcover, soft cover and audio version reviews together. Thus my audio version review is grouped with the other reviews.Listening to this book was extremely entertaining, educational and intriguing for me. I’ve never had an experience just like it. That’s what motivated me to submit a review despite the previous 63 customer…
