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.

I Sadly Wasted Money

Of all audio books I have ever spent money on and spent time listening too, this naration was by far the most HORRIBLE experience I have ever had the misfortune of investing my time on. I couldnt maintain focus or even follow the audio at all. I couldnt even finsh the book and barely even got in to it before I have up listening.

Important Read for Leaders

As a law enforcement officer and leader, I have studied the tactical aspects of Sun Tzu for years. The Art of War is not an easy read though. I read a little about Machiavelli, but didn't think I really needed to know that style of leadership. This book is basically the Cliff Notes version of "The Art of War" and "The Prince." It is an important read because you may never aspire to be "Machiavellian" but others shall. You need to see the warning signs, and possibly preempt and retaliate against people of this sort. Tzu says "know your enemy" and this book will help you ferret them out, whether they are inside or outside of your organization.

Brilliant book

This was my first book to read on Suntzu and Machiavelli together. What a brilliant combination. I plan on recommending this to anyone that I know that are interested in leadership.
