Entertaining and informative, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in leadership theory, business strategy, or military history, along with anyone interested in Chinese philosophy.The author gives a Chinese quote, and then goes on to:*explain how the strategy of the quote could be used in business, *how a modern company has successfully used the strategy, *how a military leader in old China used the strategy to his success. It's a wonderful read.
