“I have read many excellent books on the ancient stratagems, most of them written solely from a historical or anthropological perspective,” Bercu said. “This book takes a different approach. I strive to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western mind-sets by sharing my personal experiences as well as searching out the personal narratives of people I have known or met.”
