The 33 Strategies of War is rote full of long, drawn-out historical and philosophical dialogue, that purports to support his 33 strategy thesis. Some of the stories are interesting; most are long and boring, but actually descriptive and supportive of the thesis. All in all, the book was instructive, descriptive, and helpful. I’ve learned the games that people and groups play. Strategy, indeed, can be learned; this book is a good step towards that.
If I were to buy this book, I would buy a used copy from Amazon or somewhere else. It’s not a bad book to read, just boring, but instructive in some ways. People can be very vicious in strategy and war. Reading this book has helped me see the world a little differently.
