In business, whether you're negotiating a contract, making a crucial pitch, or analyzing a new market, these same skills give you a superior advantage. Many of the strategies that glean intelligence and lead to victory in cold and hot wars can also be used to execute mergers, target and acquire top talent, and mobilize teams to create new business initiatives.
The trick is in knowing exactly how to apply intelligence tactics to the business arena.

Filled with case studies of strategies in action and fascinating insights from Hartley's two careers in interrogation and business, The Most Dangerous Business Book You'll Ever Read is a gripping and practical guide to winning business battles.
