Brilliant distillations of the strategies of war—and the subtle social game of everyday life—by the bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power and The Laws of Human Nature Robert Greene’s groundbreaking guides, The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, and Mastery, espouse profound, timeless lessons from the events of history to help readers vanquish an enemy, ensnare an unsuspecting victim, or become the greatest in your field. In The 33 Strategies of War, Greene has crafted an important addition to this ruthless and unique series. Spanning world civilizations, synthesizing dozens of political, philosophical, and religious texts and thousands of years of violent conflict, The 33 Strategies of War is the I-Ching of conflict, the contemporary companion to Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. Abundantly illustrated with examples from history, including the folly and genius of everyone from Napoleon to Margaret Thatcher, Shaka the Zulu to Lord Nelson, Hannibal to Ulysses S. Grant, as well as movie moguls, Samurai swordsmen, and diplomats, each of the thirty-three chapters outlines a strategy that will help you win life’s wars. Learn the offensive strategies that require you to maintain the initiative and negotiate from a position of strength, or the defensive strategies designed to help you respond to dangerous situations and avoid unwinnable wars. The great warriors of battlefields and drawing rooms alike demonstrate prudence, agility, balance, and calm, and a keen understanding that the rational, resourceful, and intuitive always defeat the panicked, the uncreative, and the stupid. An indispensable book, The 33 Strategies of War provides all the psychological ammunition you need to overcome patterns of failure and forever gain the upper hand.

“The need-to-know strategies that can also be used for ‘winning the subtle social game of everyday life.'”—Business Insider”Greene’s specialty is analyzing the lives and philosophies of historical figures like Sun Tzu and Napoleon, and extracting from them tips on how to manipulate people and situations—a cutthroat worldview that has earned him a devoted following among a like-minded readership of rappers, drug dealers and corporate executives.”—The New York Times About the Author Robert Greene has a degree in classical studies and is the author of several bestselling books, including The 48 Laws of Power, The 33 Strategies of War, The Art of Seduction, and Mastery.

My takeaway from this book was:1. Make sure you have more options than your competitors2. Victory is gained not by destroying your competitors but rather frightening all of them.3. Silence is great strategic device that’s not used by many.4. Take long time to say “YES” and “NO” they are the most used words but yet nobody takes enough time to ponder over it before saying yes/no.There’s a lot more that one can take away from this book however these are the things I remember the most.
To date I’ve read everything Robert Greene has in print and, much to my surprise, this turned out to be the most useful volume of all. Greene’s other books were immensely helpful for clearing my head of cobwebs since, along with everyone else, I’m forced to negotiate our brave new world of cutthroat tactics and social Darwinists, while trying to keep a roof over my head. Without going into detail, let me simply say The 33 Strategies of War taught me exactly what I needed to know in order to adequately discourage the bullying I have had to endure at work for the past three years. Until I can find another job — not all wars are winnable — I can now keep this workplace vampire’s demeaning behaviors in check. I recommend all of Greene’s books, but this one may well be the best investment of the lot.
Great examples and stories, but as always Greene has a rather Machiavellian view of life which becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy–if we view life as war it more often will be. But on the other side, we need to realize that some people will screw us over, and a dose of that truth is needed for survival as well. My biggest revelation of the book was that war is less about war than the psychology and drama going on behind the scenes, whether it be tides literally affecting the course of a war or personal affairs changing the course of history.
There are no wars in most parts of the world. Condemning war as barbaric deeds is politically correct and very HYPOCRITICAL. The non-physical war in peaceful places is even more aggressive and nasty in fact. This book is truly enlightening in explaining the truth of it. But most importantly. This book is amazingly PRACTICAL and ACTIONABLE. I can’t praise more about this book. 48 laws of power open your eyes for truth of human dynamics, this book comes far from understanding the humanity into the manual of getting what you want by humanity. Thank you, Robert Greene. I still think not only Robert Greene but this book are underestimated in the world. Although Greene is famous in the States, but it’s truly not enough.
Highly recommended, you can buy all of these on Amazon.
This is probably the best book I’ve read – the writing is very engaging and they are explained in such an interesting and insightful way. Clearly a lot of research has gone into this, particularly the historic stories about war/combat and politics. The examples from history are an excellent way to illustrate specific points. I regularly keep this book for reference, and I’m sure I’ll continue referring to it in the future. It uses the topic of war to explain and describe different strategic tools and methods. I’ve read 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene, so this is my 2nd book I’ve read by him – and it exceeded expectations.
Robert Greene continues to blow me away! After reading “The 48 Laws of Power” I was hooked. The writing style and format (for me) is my favorite “extra bonus” in his books. Great content, examples, and a knack for explaining fairly complicated ideas in a way that “clicks.”Read it!
Greene draws a lot of wisdom from Sunzi (pin-yin spelling of Sun Tzu). He makes many analogy’s to sports and business, so it is not just a “how to fight a war book.” Since the war in Vietnam, America has learned somewhat the lessons of the “Third World Way of War.” Technology, though a great advantage is not a “win all.” Preparation and a constantly shifting battlefield are the keys to success. As the age of the nation-state (1648-2018) wanes, corporate powers will now begin directing strategy and whether a nation likes it or not, national policy. The Industrial Age produced the American Civil War, World Wars ! and 2. Greene shows the changing state of warfare and the strategists adopting and learning from the ever changing situations. Greene fits well with Colonel John Nagl and Colonel Thomas Hammes’ books “Learning to Eat Soup With a Knife” and “The Sling and The Stone.” All great reads.
This book is about defending and attacking and being bitter and appearing successful to others. This book is for people who care more about their reputations than the quality of their lives. For example, it advises you to end your participation in activities according to how it will best look to others. If you enjoy an activity, tough luck, if you’re no longer excelling in it, you’re supposed to give it up.
Ah, just a half-considered list. Just not much good. Go read the classics, from people who’ve been there, like Sun Tzu, Machiavelli, instead of some guy writing pop-culture self-self-self carp.
I wanted the Hardback copy but it was sold out, so I bought the paperback copy, I should have paid attention….I prefer to read tangible books and my bedside lamp is usually sufficient. However, the only way I will be able to read this is with the overhead light on which gives me a headache. Very disappointed and will probably just opt for reading the Kindle version as an uncomplicated alternative.
This is quite a long book however its well worth reading Rob goes into great depth in terms of dealing with people who provoke you, his examples are great.Reading this book alongside the 48 Laws of Power will complement it further. Do be warned its quite a long read but worth while.
Hi Robert,This book is fantastic. I’m specifically utilizing the skills you teach to set goals in my life. I’ve always been a fan of setting longer term goals; the strategies you teach compound my thoughts as well as offer new insights.My company “Social Attraction” is based in London. If you are ever in the UK please contact me as I’d love to interview you for my podcast titled “The Gary Gunn Show”.Thanks,Gary
