The goal is to learn how to approach problems in a manner that is at once creative, geared toward achieving financial success, and refreshingly amoral.

These people were revered and known as "warrior-sages". Now, we refer to them as "suckers". Crazy Bosses and Sun Tzu teaches you how to wage war, win, and enjoy the plunder in the real world.

    Stanley Bing knows whereof he speaks. He has lived the last two decades working inside a gigantic multinational corporation, kicking and screaming all the way up the ladder. He has seen it all: mergers, acquisitions, layoffs, the death of the three-martini lunch; and has himself been painfully re-engineered a number of times. Most importantly, Bing has seen management at its best and worst, and has practiced both as he made the transition from an inexperienced player to a polished strategist.
