Read in January, 1994

A co-worker recommended this book, and he acting like it was the given words of the creator of the universe. I read it and I didn't get much out of it. Sure, it's got some good tactics and techniques, but if you want to know how to go to war, read a poker book.

The difficulty in this book is converting the practical war tactics to the everyday. It would definitely take some study and application to accomplish this so that you were operating at a subconscious level and not thinking, "Hmm, what would Sun Tzu do?"
