About this ebook

三十六计, often translated as "36 Strategems" have always been marketed as a guide for businessmen to give them an edge over their competitors. But make no mistake, these are just 36 dirty tricks used in China over thousands of years in war and swindle. Most of these tricks cannot be ethically applied. Some can be downright criminal. In this book, Singaporean author Chan Joon Yee nakedly illustrates the 36 dirty tricks in their original context with examples from both ancient and modern times. He makes no attempt to market it as a business guide and sincerely hopes that his readers will read it purely for entertainment.
