Total Global Strategy II

Rating: ********** (Excellent)

This is a really thin book, but it is so crammed with facts, data, information, knowledge, tips, analysis and knowledge that I can't really compare it to other books.

The only negative part of it is that it is in reality the second edition of his book, which he re-branded in 2003 and added II to the title.

A rarity and a must read.
