This amazing work has the potential to open new horizons in the lives of not only military men but for everyone and can be invaluable if one applies its principles in his real life.

The book has benefited people outside of the military as well, the reason why it has been a read by so many of the political leaders, educationist, and businessmen. It emphasizes less on actual conflict and more on strategies.
