33 Strategies of War is a comprehensive guide to the subtle social game of everyday life, informed by the most ingenious and effective military principles in war. It's the I-Ching of conflict, the contemporary companion to Sun Tzu's The Art of War, and is abundantly illustrated with examples from history, including the folly and genius of everyone from Napoleon to Margaret Thatcher, Hannibal to Ulysses S. Grant, movie moguls to samurai swordsmen.

I normally like Robert Greene's books, but this felt a little too dry for me. I couldn't finish it. But I do love and recommend his other book: 48 laws of power

Are you tired of feeling f*cked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unf*cked version of yourself. "Wake up to the miracle you are," he directs. "Here's what you've forgotten: You're a f*cking miracle of being." It isn't other people that are standing in your way; it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive. It's yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself.

nothing to really recommend here, it's a tough love book for people who need someone to berate them in order to feel motivated. Not my thing. I was hoping for something a bit more actionable and substantial.

To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.

I didn't make it past the first one or two chapters of this book. It's just a bit too pretentious and woo woo for me. I wanted actual advice on how to live more in the present. Instead I got what feels like a weird religious book all about this guy's life and journey. Not what I was expecting.
