The Master Strategist: Power, Purpose and Principle in Action

Hardback
In the same way that Machiavelli, and Sun Tzu before him, exploded all existing ideas about strategy, The Master Strategist cuts across politics, economics and business to set out a new and compelling strategy for a peaceful and prosperous future. We stand at a point in history where we can have almost anything we desire and are able to manipulate technology to create wealth and launch any war we wish to fight. Learning how to create a strategy for saving the future is now essential. Ketan Patel meets with leading strategists in international government and business on an almost weekly basis. This unique access to people at this level has given him insights into the most fundamental questions that face us, such as: -- How many more wars before we learn how to win peace? -- Can we sustain our prosperity, let alone expand it to others? -- How much trust can we put in our political leaders? We find ourselves today more connected, more knowledgeable, more prosperous, more resourceful and therefore more powerful than ever before. With all our power, we have circled back to the need to focus our energies on survival and security. The quality of our strategies will determine the outcome from here.
