The Strategy Collection: The Art of War, On War, The Prince


Author: Carl von Clausewitz


There are a number of these books online at Amazon. Some are even free to download. This book combines Sun Tzu, Machiaveli and von Clausewitz in one, very inexpensive download book (99 cents). My suggestion is for you to understand historic, and perhaps current thinking in Asia about war, which could be translated to business strategy. Strategy comes from the battlefield, whether in Asia or the West (Carl von Clausewitz) or from the political intrigue of Italian families (Machiaveli). Its always good to understand the genesis of thinking. You may not want to operate your business with this particular value system, but perhaps your competitors are. That’s always good to understand.
