Review: The Rules of Victory: Strategies from The Art of War by James Gimian & Barry Boyce.

The Rules of Victory: How to Transform Chaos and Conflict: Strategies from The Art of War

James Gimian and Barry Boyce

Rules of Victory is a straightforward and well written book that takes the Sun Tzu from just a simple translation and its theoretical use into the level of practical, everyday usage in life. Conflict is a part of everyone’s existence, and knowing how to keep those conflicts from escalating into “war” in any sense is the essence of the Art of War, and that idea is fully explored in this text. The text includes suggestions on how to read the Sun Tzu not just for better understanding of the text, but also as a means to truly incorporate its lessons into our everyday lives and thinking. From the family room to the classroom to the cubicle to the boardroom, this is an excellent book for anyone in a leadership role, or who aspires to be in a leadership role, and the book also includes examples of how others have taken what they have learned and applied it. Includes an excellent translation of the original text by the Denma Translation Group.

NOTE: James Gimian, one of the authors, will be one of the interviewee guests at the Elevision: Free Tibet event on Wednesday, July 23rd at the Boulder Theater, and will be available to sign copies of the book.
