Three of the most famous works on military organization and strategy ever written! When exploring the subject of war, there can be no true discussion without the fundamentals expressed in these three classics. Born in different centuries, of different cultures, and with different perspectives, authors Sun Tzu, Machiavelli, and von Clausewitz brilliantly discuss how to approach conflict, determine your strength, and use it to emerge victoriously?on and off the battlefield. In The Art of War, widely regarded as "The Oldest Military Treatise in the World," Sun Tzu covers principles of tactics, maneuvering, communication, and supplies; the use of terrain, fire, and the seasons of the year; the utilization of spies; and the treatment of soldiers, including captives. Best known as the political theorist who wrote The Prince, Niccolò Machiavelli considered The Art of War his most important work. This revolutionary 1520 treatise clearly discusses strategy, the handling of recruitment and weapons, motivating troops, demoralizing enemies, and achieving tactical advantages. Written two centuries ago by a Prussian military thinker, Principles of War is the most frequently cited book on modern warfare. In this work, von Clausewitz examines moral and psychological aspects of warfare, stressing the necessity of courage and self-sacrifice, as well as the importance of public opinion. Available together for the first time, these classic treatises on war will prove indispensable to historians and students of military science.

As today's preeminent doomsday investor Mark Spitznageldescribes his Daoist and roundabout investmentapproach, “one gains by losing and loses by gaining.”This is Austrian Investing, an archetypal, counterintuitive,and proven approach, gleaned from the 150-year-old Austrian Schoolof economics, that is both timeless and exceedingly timely. In The Dao of Capital, hedge fund manager andtail-hedging pioneer Mark Spitznagel—with one of the topreturns on capital of the financial crisis, as well as over acareer—takes us on a gripping, circuitous journey from theChicago trading pits, over the coniferous boreal forests andcanonical strategists from Warring States China to NapoleonicEurope to burgeoning industrial America, to the great economicthinkers of late 19th century Austria. We arrive at his centralinvestment methodology of Austrian Investing, where victorycomes not from waging the immediate decisive battle, but ratherfrom the roundabout approach of seeking the intermediatepositional advantage (what he calls shi), of aiming at theindirect means rather than directly at the ends. The monumentalchallenge is in seeing time differently, in a whole newintertemporal dimension, one that is so contrary to ourwiring. Spitznagel is the first to condense the theories of Ludwig vonMises and his Austrian School of economics into a cohesiveand—as Spitznagel has shown—highly effective investmentmethodology. From identifying the monetary distortions andnon-randomness of stock market routs (Spitznagel's bread andbutter) to scorned highly-productive assets, in Ron Paul's wordsfrom the foreword, Spitznagel “brings Austrian economics fromthe ivory tower to the investment portfolio.” The Dao of Capital provides a rare and accessible lookthrough the lens of one of today's great investors to discover aprofound harmony with the market process—a harmony that is soessential today.
