This is perhaps the most interesting work of political strategy I have ever read. This is perhaps the most interesting book by William Riker, the father of political game theory. It is a must read for anyone intellectually involved in politics. Riker engages the reader with deeds of the most shrewd politicians in history and then explains their reasoning clearly and concisely. Although some might be weary of 'Political Manipulation', this work is merely an expose of some of the most efficient and effective players ever to play the political 'game'. If you are in office, running for office, or would simply like an enlightened view of the political process: I guarantee that you will not be let down. 'Learn from the best, or lose like the rest.'
