The 33 Strategies of War by Robert Greene summarized as succinctly as possible in this 24-min animation by yours truly, illacertus. I received an e-mail reply from Robert Greene after waiting an approximate three months since I sent my initial fan mail linking to these summaries, in which he says Thank You.
