If you've read Coonts' Grafton/Carmellini series and liked it, then no doubt you will like this book too. If you can forgive the plausibility flaws in this book (which is rare for Coonts) then this story is an engaging read into a typical "what if..." Scenario of brinksmanship between China and the USA. For example, letting a material witness to a Capitol crime go back to their family restaurant to serve dinner (oddly out of place), could be forgiven by Carmellini's dry wit laced throughout the book. The bemusing overwritten by the amusing. But then there is the adventure itself, which is worthwhile spending your Kindle $'s on.
An amazing collection of ancient yet clearly relevant wisdom. Not just for war but for negotiations and strategist thinking. I did not think I would read a book like this. I did not think it would be relevant. I was clearly and utterly surprised how brilliant it was - in context that is. I do not intend to engage in war but as a consultant I deal with conflicts and management struggles which this book gives amazing insights into. Fuzz Kitto
