  1. Outstanding take!
    Which books are online and when will you see them?

    • The first three were bought off of amazon, and the latter two were from a local book store. Amazon says the books will be here “some time in May”, but it usually only takes two to three weeks (which is a lot of time to wait, but it’s better than nothing…).

        I think you and Muli should be Amazone friends. No point in me getting a 10% discount, right?

  2. I found the “Five rings” book a bit too long winded. Sun Tzu kicks ass though.

    • Really? I read it in one sitting one afternoon when I had a few hours to kill before Ninjitsu practice. Seemed fitting, somehow ๐Ÿ™‚
      Agree about Sun Tzu, of course. Clausewitz is interesting, especially after reading Keegan’s A History of Warfare, where he bashes it pretty thoroughly.

  3. If you really really want to learn about war and become a great leader…

  4. Lois McMaster Bujold
    I bought two Vorkosigan books recently – The Warrior’s Apprentice and Memory.
    Haven’t started them yet (currently reading Asimov’s The God Themselves) but I have some _high_ expectations, from all I have heard of Bujold.
