"From ancient battlefields to the modern business landscape, competitors have tried innumerable approaches to conquering adversaries. Success for the victors has taken many forms and traveled many paths, but at its heart, winning strategy can be boiled down to ten universal principles. When learned and implemented, these principals become powerful drivers of business excellence. Renowned strategy expert William A. Cohen, whose considerable experience in the military, corporate, and academic sectors forms the basis for "The Art of the Strategist," presents the timeless lessons of:

* commitment to a definite objective

* seizing and maintaining the initiative

* economization to mass (concentration of resources)

* positioning

* surprise

* multiple simultaneous alternatives

* the indirect approach

* simplicity

* timing

* exploiting success

With examples including the conquests of Hannibal and Alexander the Great, the political triumphs of Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the business successes of internet giant VeriSign and other high-profile companies, "The Art of the Strategist" proves how superior strategy trumps other factors in almost every competitive arena. The ten lessons in turn form a roadmap to decisive victory in business."
