Publisher's Summary

Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Machiavelli's The Prince both are fundamentally important works related to the areas of strategic leadership and decision making. Although almost every leader has heard of these works, very few have read them in depth and applied the lessons they contain to their own lives. This is a huge oversight. Both books contain wisdom and advice that are applicable to almost any situation a leader finds himself in.

Both books have reputations for being dense and difficult to understand. This is due to the fact that both were written in other languages and for other time periods. It can be difficult to know exactly what Sun Tzu and Machiavelli intended to convey with their words - and even more difficult to know how to take action on the ideas.

This has all changed. For the first time ever, the ideas of The Prince and The Art of War have been combined, updated, and presented in a way that is easy to understand in our modern era. Previously hard-to-interpret concepts have been clarified and shown to be as useful in our own era as they were in the ones for which they were originally written.

By listening and taking action on this book, entitled Sun Tzu & Machiavelli Leadership Secrets, by author Anthony D. Jensen, you give yourself the chance to become the most effective leader you can be. You will learn how to use timeless principles of leadership, psychology, and power to achieve everything you set out to do. Both your private and professional lives will benefit immensely from understanding and applying the leadership secrets of Sun Tzu and Machiavelli.

This needs to be in any CEO Library

This is a great read for any up coming CEO, if your drive is to be more than just a CEO. To be the leader too others, this is the book for it gives you the angel and the devil side of being of being a true leader. I will use this book as my study guide to view the good and bad sides off leadership.

Needs a better reader

Great contents, I absolutely enjoyed this title. Didn’t love the reader performance, sometimes it sounded as if it was a computer generated voice.

A wake up call for modern leaders!

Concise and well structured, cut to the chase. Monotone but still effective considering the content. Refreshing perspective for today's leaders.

Great Read for Logical Thinkers and Wannabes!

One of the better books about Machiavellian philosophy. Great reminders, requires focused listening which kept me interested. Worth the $ for strategy mungers. 💡

not bad

a nice summary of the content of the prince and art of war don't fully sink in or if you have trouble understanding how the concepts apply to modern times.
