Summary

Does modern advice always seem repetitive? Do you find yourself rolling your eyes and sighing when you hear the word lifehacks? Are you looking for a better way to achieve success, conquer challenges and overcome adversity? Well with this brand new book, Sun Tzu & Machiavelli: Success and Leadership Principles for the Modern World, you can learn all of the ancient principles of how to achieve victory as taught by the brilliant military tactician and leader Sun Tzu.

Not only do we look into the deep principles that Sun Tzu espoused about how to win at war and life, we're also taking a look at the modern application of the brilliant Niccolo Machiavelli! Some people might think that Machiavelli's work was too callous or evil, but his words of pragmatism, ruthlessness and tactics can be seen in the actions of many a politician and leader in this world. By looking to the wisdom found in The Prince, not only can you learn how to recognize callous and cunning maneuvers by those who seek to undermine you, you will learn how to turn the tables on your foes!

Whether you're a leader in the workplace, at home, or in a volunteer organization, you're going to face many challenges. In Sun Tzu & Machiavelli: Success and Leadership Principles for the Modern World, not only will you learn the ancient wisdom of brilliant men, you will learn how to apply all of their advice and tactics to our modern day living. Don't bother with other sources of "modern wisdom", instead look to the past and you will find a wellspring of knowledge unlike any other!

Buy the real books instead

Do not buy this book if you would like to read The Art of War or The Prince. This book is just some subjective summary/discussion of the two, and not even a good one. I would recommend you buy the books separate instead.

Inciteful

Very inciteful and enjoyable. Machiavelli and Sun Tzu make a great combination like sweet and sour.
