I may be the only person who hasn’t read The Art of War by Sun Tzu, so some of the parallels of this story were lost on me. Public relations maven Stacey Knight and her husband Jamey move from New York City to Los Angeles, where Jamey will serve as CEO to a movie studio. Much of this book is a “fish out of water” tale as Stacey adjusts to West Coast living.
The former movie studio head is a big fan of The Art of War, and the Art of Social War follows the same format. Eventually Stacey gets tired of being bullied by the ex-CEO and uses The Art of War to get revenge. The story line was interesting and quite clever. As I said, I think I would have appreciated it more if I was a bigger fan of The Art of War.
