I wanted to throw a shot out to Robert Greene’s new book the 33 Strategies of War. If you remember, Greene wrote the 48 Laws of Power, which was excellent. This is essentially a war history book, wrapped up into flexible, applicable principles, that any individual can use in different aspects of life, but particularly well in business.

Green breaks down strategy ideas for approaching problems, and then outlines them in a historical context. I will warn you, it is a very slow and very fascinating read, not something to rush through. Read a chapter, think about it, let is soak in, read the next.

While reading, I find myself asking how the principles can be applied to photography and I must say, if you are starting a photography business…this would be a great read!
