Has the Potential to Change Lives as it Did Mine

A few years ago I began to study the concept of strategy through the lens of Gary Gagliardi's writings and applications of Sun Tzu's ancient text. It had a great influence on how I saw the world, saw competition, saw success, and saw the tasks that lied before me. I practice somewhat of a stoic philosophy, and when I encounter an obstacle that would trouble me, I turn to the tenets from this material, and my path becomes very clear. In the audio version of this book, Mr. Gagliardi's narration is tantamount to listening to the wisest counsel from an old friend. Highly recommended.

Unbelievably Powerful!

Would you listen to The Golden Key to Strategy again? Why?

Asking if I would listen to this again, is like asking me if I would like to listen to Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich again or if I would like to read The New England Patriot's secret football playbook more than once. Let me think about that...Yes? Please? This material is profoundly life-changing, I'm still trying to completely wrap my brain around these profound concepts but I've already gotten some amazing insights. Looking forward to listening again and again.

What other book might you compare The Golden Key to Strategy to and why?

Sun Tsu's Art of War, Robert Greene's 33 Strategies of War, Bob Rice's Three Moves Ahead. Malcolm Gladwell's Outlyers (or pretty much anything from Malcolm Gladwell), The first 3 are good books on Strategy. The Malcolm Gladwell books are stimulating brain candy and The Golden Key has elements of both, but ties them together into an elegant and practical system.

Have you listened to any of Gary Gagliardi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't yet, but if they're anything like The Golden Key, I'd be interested in listening to more of Gary's programs.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"The Secret Laws of Strategy"

Any additional comments?

I wish I had stumbled across this 25 years ago. I would have saved myself a lot of wasted time and frustration. Very useful content. 150 audio books in my Audible library and this one is definitely on the top of my list. Well worth the credit.
