This is the best of all of those gimmicky business books out there that I have yet read. I especially liked how the author first presented his favourite translation, and then a few other translations. It helped me get the feel for the difficulty of translating Chinese ideograms. This way made the book hopefully more faithful to the ideas expressed, even if applied in a business context.

Nothing mind boggling here... but some useful reminders of different strategies and tactics of dealing with idiots in the office...

I don't like to think of management in terms of war. I'd rather think of it in terms of a garden.

“The idea of using extraordinary force does not mean more of the same effort. Extraordinary action results from out-of-the-box thinking.” 0 likes
“The cry from every business failure is, “We ran out of money,” but the real problem was probably one or more of the following: not enough managerial talent or operational skill, wrong products or services, or one of myriad other inadequate resources required to make the organization successful.” 0 likes
