    "I love this guy"

    Sight unseen, I will pay good money for anything this guy writes. Line for line, there is more real-world value here, more nuggets per minute, than anything of this genre I've seen. It is punchy, well-phrased, well taught (I interrupt my listenings, but he repeats the lessons in quick little summaries that drive the points home). At first I thought, oh wow, some brash frat boy who thinks he knows philosophy, urging being a tough guy while tossing off a few quotes of The Art of War. Yawn. But after a few minutes, I was hooked. There is substance here, and plenty of the quotes are terrific. This fellow did actually learn something from philosophers, unlike countless pretentious mediocrities. I also want to give credit for the brevity, as I read hundreds of popular books and despise the padding that goes on as a matter of course. Bravo, someone with the guts to say it sharply and not labor to fit some big bloated (and overpriced) format. As a sample, let me point to his able tutoring on the tempo and basic structure of "the dance" of deals -- offer, counter, close (with variations based on strategy: specific ways to speed things up or cool them down, and reasons for doing so). Good, clean stuff, good contracting tactics, with humor and enough brashness without going over the top. Yeah, OK, it is probably a bit of a resume for him, tooting his horn, but not annoyingly so, and always in service of a lesson or idea. And what book ISN'T a resume in some sense for its author? I have no problem with the tone or tempo -- it all fits the subject like a glove.

    "Don't be afraid of Machiavelli, but..."

    heed the advice of Nietzsche, "Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster." Jeff Cohen really distills the art of deal making while still remaining human. Well done!
