From historian and global strategist Gregory R. Copley comes a charter for personal business success based on the "28 Maxims of Victory": lessons from history on how civilizations and societies have evolved. The Art of Victory is a manual for survival and prosperity in the midst of current social, technological, and environmental changes. Like Sun Tzu's Art of War, this book is a guide for business and social leaders, broad in scope but specific enough to apply to everyday life. Drawing on decades of experience working with and advising the highest levels of political and military leadership, Copley offers his 28 Maxims of Victory to understand how civilizations and societies naturally evolve, showing listeners how to recognize and employ these functioning building blocks in their own professional and personal lives. From the halls of political power to the boardroom and the living room, the timeless lessons drawn from history offer a holistic and balanced view of simple strategies for success. They are not only relevant today, but can also predict the future. Concise and cleverly organized, The Art of Victory can be used for personal, political, and business life now, and into the new millennium.
