Thunder in the Sky: Secrets on the Acquisition and Exercise of Power by Thomas Cleary, Chin-Ning Chu

Understanding the development and practice of power -- based on an in-depth observation of human psychology -- has been a part of traditional Chinese thought for thousands of years and is considered a prerequisite for mastering the arts of strategy and leadership. Thunder in the Sky presents two secret classics of this ancient Chinese tradition. The commentary by Thomas Cleary -- the renowned translator of dozens of Asian classics -- highlights the contemporary application of these teachings.
