Short Review

The classic book, The Art of War, is a required reading for any tactician though it’s principles go beyond military strategy. Most of the book is applicable in entrepreneurship, sport, investing, anything in which you are competing with others. It’s a short book—you can read it in one evening—nonetheless it’s packed with wisdom.
