Book Review: The Art of the Strategist

Bob FranquizBooks

There aren’t too many books on strategy, but The Art of the Strategist by William Cohen is a good one. It took me a little while to get into this book, but it had some gems that made it worth the time to read it.

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

“You cannot develop an effective way to get ‘there’ until you know exactly where it is.”

“People will not follow you if they think that your commitment is temporary, or that you may quit short of attainment.”

“Strive to keep things simple and you’ll be pleased with the results.”

“The less complicated your overall plan, the better its change or success.”

“Doing the right thing at the wrong time can be as bad as taking an action which is not the right thing to do under any circumstances.”
