From Publishers Weekly

As in his bestselling The 48 Laws of Power, Greene puts a modern spin on wisdom that has stood the test of history, only this time his role model is Sun Tzu rather than Machiavelli. The argument is fairly standard: despite our most noble intentions, "aggressive impulses that are impossible to ignore or repress" make military combat a fitting metaphor for getting ahead in life. Greene's advice covers everything from steeling one's mind for battle to specific defensive and offensive tactics—notably, the final section on "dirty" warfare is one of the book's longest. Historical lessons are outlined and interpreted, with amplifying quotations crammed into the margins. Not all of the examples are drawn from the battlefield; in one section, Greene skips nimbly from Lyndon Johnson's tenacity to Julius Caesar's decisiveness, from Joan Crawford's refusal to compromise to Ted Williams's competitive drive. Alfred Hitchcock, he says, embodies "the detached-Buddha tactic" of appearing uninvolved while remaining in total control. The diversity of subject matter compensates for occasional lapses into stilted warriorese ("arm yourself with prudence, and never completely lay down your arms, not even for friends"). For those willing to embrace its martial conceit, Greene's compendium offers inspiration and entertainment in equal measure. (Jan. 23)

From Booklist

Greene and "producer" Joost Elffers are the Machiavellians who brought us The 48 Laws of Power (1998) and The Art of Seduction (2001), and their latest book similarly purports to distill the profundities of history for personal gain. Unapologetically premised on Hobbesian "all that is social is war" bromides, this account collects parables of strategic success and error from a diverse cast of military and nonmilitary historical figures. Its lessons are presented self-help-book style in chapters titled "Maneuver Them into Weakness" and "Seem to Work for the Interests of Others While Furthering Your Own" and flanked by a withering barrage of reiterative marginalia. Most books this cynical (and this repetitive) need a sense of humor to be readable, something this book apparently lacks. Its quasi-spiritual tone, though perhaps increasing its attractiveness to the impressionable, is also trying at times. But those readers who push through to the end (or flip ahead) will find a curiously contemporary section on modern terrorism cloaking a surprisingly specific commentary on al-Qaeda and antiterrorism strategy. Politics by other means? Brendan Driscoll

5.0 von 5 Sternen Master the Art of Strategy 5. April 2006
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"The 33 Strategies of War" is Robert Greene's latest publication on power play and should be seen as extension to his preceding books on power and seduction. In particular, Greene intends to introduce the reader to the art of strategy. He, however, does not stop there: instead of trying to find another definition of what strategy exactly is, he is interested in the application of particular strategies in all kinds of social situations--ranging from personal relationships to all-out war. In other words, he gives a vivid illustration of the art of strategy. And this approach makes Greene's book attractive and seductive.
In his typical style, Greene first provides a concept of a particular strategy, then illustrates it by referring to historical events, and finally gives an analysis of methods of application. In other words, the reader is not bored by abstract conceptualizations and then left on his own; due to the historical examples one will gain an immediate feeling for and understanding of the discussed strategies. "The 33 Strategies of War" is thus a very useful introduction for beginners of strategy.
Nonetheless, this does not imply that more advanced students of strategy should omit this work and rather refer to original writings like Sun Tzu's "Art of War" or Clausewitz' "On War". "33 Strategies of War" is a useful addition to them (especially to Asian works on strategy) because Greene's expertise in Classics allows him to transcend cultural barriers that often obstruct the understanding of particular concepts of strategy. Thus, the essence of each strategy is revealed, which makes the application in every social context much easier.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein wahrer Schatz 18. September 2012
In der Einleitung beschreibt Greene ausführlich, warum sich ein Mensch, der nicht dem Militär angehört, mit Strategie auseinandersetzen sollte. Sehr treffend zeichnet er dabei ein Bild unserer zivilisierten Gesellschaft, in der es auf den ersten Blick auf Werte wie Friedfertigkeit, soziale Anpassung und Fairness anzukommen scheint, in der aber, wenn man genauer hinschaut, Krieg in subtiler und nicht so subtiler Form herrscht. Krieg, so macht er seinen Lesern klar, ist nicht immer mit Blutvergießen verbunden.
Sein Buch soll dabei helfen, sich selbst zum Strategen auszubilden. Sechs Ideale gibt er für diese Ausbildung an:

Erstens: Schauen Sie auf die Dinge, wie sie sind, nicht wie Ihre Emotionen sie färben.
In der Strategie müssen Sie Ihre emotionale Antwort auf Ereignisse als Krankheit ansehen, die kuriert werden muss. Angst wird Sie Ihren Gegner überschätzen lassen und Sie zu defensiv handeln lassen. Ärger und Ungeduld wird Sie zu übereilten Handlungen führen, die Sie in Ihren Optionen beschneiden werden. Übermut, oft ein Ergebnis aus Erfolg, wird Sie zu weit gehen lassen. Liebe und Zuneigung wird Sie blind machen für die trügerischen Manöver derer, die eigentlich auf Ihrer Seite sein sollten. Selbst die leisesten Töne dieser Emotionen können die Art, wie Sie auf Ereignisse blicken, färben. Die einzige Arznei ist, sich des unvermeidlichen Sogs der Emotionen bewußt zu sein, ihn zu bemerken und ihn zu kompensieren. Wenn Sie wütend sind, handeln Sie nicht. Wenn Sie ängstlich sind, machen Sie sich bewußt, dass Ihnen die Gefahren, denen Sie sich ausgesetzt glauben, größer erscheinen als sie sind. Krieg verlangt den größten Realitätssinn.

4.0 von 5 Sternen More than just how to wage war 26. Juni 2006
Von H3-D Technology - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Among the other reviews here, there have been some comparisons between this book and the Art of War by Sun Tzu. I'd agree. Both are elegant and detailed instruction manuals on how to prepare yourself for conflict.

Once again, Green brings a tremendous body of research and historical insight to his writing, demonstrating the key points of each chapter through some of the greatest successes and mistakes from history.

But this isn't just a book about war. Greene repeatedly states that many of the strategies and tactics used to harden an individual for conflict (or conflict avoidance) apply equally well to business, politics and negotiation, and the examples come from everywhere from Hollywood to Ancient Rome.

The advantage this book has over the previous two is that his clarification of his strategies is more balanced and consistent. He goes vague less often here.

This book completes nicely Greene's cycle of historical self-improvement books: the first in how to woo others to your way of thinking, the second to deal with power structures, and the third for self-discipline and conflict resolution.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stragtegies of War that Apply to Business and Life 30. Januar 2006
Von Philip B. Capelle - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Robert Greene is a prolific research and thinker who has made a habit out of writing masterpieces that explore all nuances of human behavior. In his latest tome he follows the same approach as in his previous bestsellers by leading off each chapter with a quick and easy to read summary that gives you the essence of the strategy and the stories that follow. Then he leads you on one fascinating historical excursion after another that brings each strategy to life through the exploits of some of histories most famous and notorious characters.

The beauty of his approach is that there is something for everyone in this book. You may read about a tactic that is highly amusing, but that you say to yourself, "I could never do that." Then in the next chapter you may say, "That's fits in with my personality. I can do that." That's how I felt about his strategies for laying back and appearing to not care, and about his strategy for taking an unassailable position.

A brief story in chapter 4 on developing a sense of extreme urgency was well worth the cost of the book to me. It talks about Fyodor Dostoevsky and how a change in his perspective on the value of life lead to a greater appreciation for every moment, and to an era of rampant productivity that continued until his death. Because I'm an author I spend a good part of every day writing and thinking about my work. After reading about Dostoevsky I immediately felt an even higher sense of purpose and motivation.

You really can't go wrong with this book. It is very entertaining and educational. Beyond that, you could pick up some sage, time-tested advice for improving both your business and your life. Bravo!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best And Most Current Book On Strategy For Your Business Or Your Life Available 9. Februar 2006
Von Dave Lakhani - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Robert Greene's books are deep and they are for thinkers. If you want a breezy beach read or airplane read, this is not that book.

You'll read this book once, get to the last page and go back to page 1 and start reading again. There are literally hundreds of ideas in this book.

I especially like the way the author has made the book applicable to your life, the business or the battlefield.

As a former soldier, I deeply appreciate the detailed review of war strategies and found the book so compelling, I'm buying copies for all of my friends who are in the military and currently deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq.

If you only read one business or self improvement book this year, read this one. If you read three, read the author's other two books, The 48 Laws of Power and The Art of Seduction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Robert Greene's art of War for the general population! 3. Juli 2006
Von J. Page - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Having been a previous owner of "48 Laws of Power" and the "Art of Seduction" I was awaiting this foray into the art of warfare... and I have not been disappointed! After receiving this book as a birthday gift, I have not put it down in the last 10 days; managing it a piece at a time, and adding some highlighting to key phrases...

While some may consider the art of war (or even seduction or manipulation of power) to be an evil thing, Mr. Greene's take on the subject seems to be "its out there: learn about it to either use it or defend against it." How true this is. The anectdotes in this book are not just coverage of battlefields and generals - varying in scope from Alfred Hitchcock to Joan Crawford, to Cortez - this book has one for (almost) everyone. And while this may seem like Sun Tzu for the Jet Set, "33 Strategies of War" would find a welcome home on the bookshelf of a four-star general preparing for battle or a stay-at-home mom wanting to match wits with her unruly children...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Book - 9. Februar 2006
Von John Marke - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As "an older professional" I am usually a bit cynical about books of this sort -- usually pretty superficial stuff. Not so with this book. Very well done, few errors, well written and thought provoking. I highly recommend it.
