Publisher's Summary

A master class in strategic thinking, distilled from the legendary program the author has co-taught at Yale for decades.
For over 20 years, a select group of Yale undergraduates has been admitted into the year-long "Grand Strategy" seminar team-taught by John Lewis Gaddis and Paul Kennedy. Its purpose: to provide a grounding in strategic decision-making in the face of crisis to prepare future American leaders for important work. Now, John Lewis Gaddis has transposed the experience of that course into a wonderfully succinct, lucid and inspirational book, a view from the commanding heights of statesmanship across the landscape of world history from the ancient Greeks to Lincoln, and beyond. A thrilling experience for history lovers and a necessary one for anyone serious about the art of leadership, On Grand Strategy is the very definition of a master class.

Master Class in Strategic Thinking

Using examples from across history, Gaddis eloquently outlines key insights into effective strategic planning.

The text and style are engrossing and will be well received by all, whether you are managing a global enterprise or a homemaker.

I will listen to this book many more times. Gaddis prepared a world class consolidation of humanities attempts to effectively plan for specific outcomes.

Promising start

In the beginning it was good, then it turned into a series of lectures without a clear definition of what grand strategy is and what it entails. Last five minutes were good too.

It needs a better structure.
