Note: This is a summary and not the original book.
We live in a culture that highlights the importance of democratic values, of fitting into a group, of knowing how to cooperate with other people. We are constantly trained and prepared for peace, but we're not at all prepared for the perpetual war that we must fight in the real world.
This war occurs not only on the military battlefield, but on multiple levels of society. In business, politics, sports, even the arts, we find ourselves facing ruthless opponents that are willing to do anything to gain an edge. More troubling, however, are the battles we face with those who claim to be on our side - those who seem to play the team game, who act friendly and agreeable, only to sabotage us behind the scenes, to use the group to secure their own selfish interests. On the surface, everything seems peaceful and harmonious, but just below it, it is often every man and woman for themselves. Our culture may deny this reality, but we all know it and feel it in our daily lives.
As equally important as The 48 Laws of Power and The Art of Seduction, The 33 Strategies of War by Robert Greene is a comprehensive guide to human interaction which reveals how the most ingenious and effective principles of warfare can be applied to the battles and conflicts of everyday life.
Each chapter is a strategy aimed at solving a particular problem that you will often encounter in your daily struggles. The strategies range from the basic strategies of classical warfare to the dirty and unconventional strategies of modern times, and can be applied to struggles of any kind: organized warfare, business campaigns, the politics of a group, or personal relationships.
