Valuable and Insightful Lessons but...

This enormous tome provides many Valuable and Insightful Lessons only there seems to be an underlying presumption that no one can be trusted and everyone is really out to get one over you at every and any chance they can. I really don't think this is a healthy nor a productive view of people to maintain, even though of course it may save your I'm falling into somebody else's schemes wanna sing awhile.

The book contains many excellent stories from history. Continual references to Napoleon, lessons from the I Ching and Samurai.

Despite my reservations about the author's somewhat paranoid premis (I'm not sure I'd want to do business with him), I know I'll listen to this book again... Maybe several times.

Very good especially for the history savy

Overall I loved the book. It is written in the traditional Robert Greene fashion, with lots of examples which are repeated in order to prove different points or different stages of a process. I personally love this style as he does not hurry up to draw a conclusion.

However it is packed full of examples from ancient history, and for me personally it would have been better to use more modern day examples. This is why I found myslef wandering of at times and had to rewind. But for someone who loves ancient history this is a 5 star book, no doubt about it. And the voice of the narrator is top notch. Would highly recommend the book to anyone interested in the matter or strategy but be prepared with patience as the book is long and tackles a lot of ideeas and stories.
