    One thought on “The Klingon Art of War”

    1. Stuff I Read - The Klingon Art of War by Keith R.A. DeCandido ReviewI got this book as something of a joke. It was on sale and I saw it and just sort of had to. As a big Star Trek fan it was just too tempting to pass by. I might be something of a sucker for "non-fiction" books from fictional settings, and especially from Star Trek. And this does not disappoint. For those wanting some further background on everyone's favorite forehead-ridged aliens, this book is a valuable resource. For those wan [...]

    2. Required disclaimer: I did receive notice they I will be receiving a hard copy of the book as part of the "first reads" program. My review is not affected by this prize.I absolutely enjoyed KRAD's twist on the standard "leadership self-help book" by making it a translation and commentary on an ancient Klingon text. Being a Star-Trek fan assists the reader in understanding the various "in-universe" references.All of the advises given can be applied to 21st century life, but sometimes taking the m [...]

    3. If you're a Star Trek fan, this book is for you. The 10 precepts are nice, but even better, is the background information on them. A lot of this information is from the various episodes and I found it enjoyable to read through things that I had remembered seeing. It might be time to do some serious binge watching of Star Trek again. There are also a lot of great quotes in the book.For the record, here are the precepts:Choose your enemies well.Strike quickly or strike not.Always face your enemy.S [...]

    5. This is a great book for both the hard-core Star Trek fan and the casual fan alike. It's one part immersion into a beloved fictional universe, and one part real-world self-help book. It made me think, and it made me glad to be a nerd. Any bookwyrm knows that reading books can make you a better person if you choose to learn from them, and this book brings that even more to life without seeming to over-stretch itself. It gives real-world advice in a Klingon context without even breaking a sweat.P. [...]

    6. Well that happenedI grabbed this at the library, fully expecting a joke on the Art of War, Klingon style. By Kahless, was I wrong!This book is straight philosophy that can be applied to your everyday life. It is as much about the history of an amazing universe as it is about truth and honor. This book is deep. So very deep. The only thing I can say is don't read this because you are a fan of Star Trek. Read this because you want to better your self. You will thank me for it.

    7. I went into this book with the wrong mindset. I've read Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Musashi's Book of Five Rings, and I knew this was meant to be like those books - but with Klingons! What my brain didn't piece together until a short way into the book is that this meant except for the modern commentary portions, the tales would be told of Klingons in the time of Kahless, with characters and places that I either haven't encountered, or last read about over a decade ago in Michael Jan Friedman's [...]

    8. I received this book as part of the First Reads giveaway, but was in a car accident shortly after otherwise this book would have been read and reviewed much sooner.This was a great book to read because it really explains why Klingons act the way they do. Honor is everything. There were great retellings of stories from various books and episodes of Star Trek. Most of them I knew but there were a few I didn't remember ever reading. I like the way each story is a great example of how each precept [...]

    9. Today is a good day to [read]!The Klingon Art of War is more like "The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Klingons". Each of 10 precepts is a simple truism, a dictum explaining it, and then several stories and observations by the Klingon writer. I loved the author's explanation that these things can apply to everyone not just a noble warrior holding off a horde of enemies on a forbidding mountain pass. These precepts are for everyone and a nice reminder that not every Klingon is ready to leave their [...]

    10. Disclaimer: I received this book for free via First Reads.I greatly enjoyed this book. I love the concept of it, and it was very well written. I've watched some Star Trek, but I'm not what you would call a 'Trekkie', and so I think this book could be enjoyed by both casual and hardcore fans. This is also a beautiful book, inside and out. It looks great on my bookcase. This book basically is a guide to the Klingon's view of honor and how honor is the basis of their culture. There are stories tha [...]

    11. I really enjoyed reading this book. It gave me a better understanding of the Klingon culture. I enjoyed reading about their legendary warrior Kalahs.The appex of the book was just as informative as the rest of the book. I got to understand the Klingons a lot better then what I did just from watching the show and movies. Klingons are warriors all the way through. They live by a certain code and they also die by that same code.I would describe the Klingons a mix between Vikings and Barbarians. Thi [...]

    12. I won this book in a First-Reads giveaway.It was an enjoyable read. There are ten sections, each with a precept, illustration, explanation through stories, and a commentary. There are also a few appendices. I read one section per night to make it last longer. If there is one complaint I have it is that the book is too short.I liked the way that the author referenced characters and events that I recognized from the show as well as ones that I wasn't familiar with.One of my favorite sections was t [...]

    13. Very useful tips. If you're familiar with the Art of War and/or the 48 Laws of Power this will make more sense to you. If you're a Star Trek fan, you'll get the references and know who the names are. If not, they shouldn't bother you too much, but you won't understand the stories as well as a fan would. I did feel that one story to get the point across would have been sufficient as opposed to the 3 or 4 that were included in every chapter. Nonetheless it's informative and entertaining.

    14. I won this book in a First-Reads giveaway.Very well done, enjoyed it thoroughly! Each of the 10 Precepts comes with tales from Klingon oral history that exemplify each in turn, as well as the qeS'a author's own commentary. And as other's have commented, each can indeed be prescribed to human life in general (metaphorically, if not also literally, speaking).

    15. As with any standard text on warfare, this text's aphorisms and commentary can be clearly applicable to every day life from the common intellectual in his pursuits, to the businessman going for the goal, or the warrior in battle. As with its Chinese namesake, upon which this text is primarily modeled, it makes for a most recommended read.

    16. The art work at the beginning of each chapter is very well done, and perfectly fitting for this book. The style and layout is fun to read, and I recommend The Klingon Art of War for any fan of Trek and the Klingons!Full review: treklit/2014/09/K

    17. I won this book as a first reads on . First off it is a very well bound book with thick pages, nice type, good drawings. I will give this a christmas gift. You should be a Star Trek/Klingon fan to fully appreciate it.

    18. A must read for every Klingon and the more Terranes that read it the better. Each chapter is short and powerful with the ancient teachings of Kahless explained and illuminated thru both traditional and modern examples. This book is the truth you need to cut thru the crap in your life.

    19. Well, my 1st though when I got this book was that I'm a bigger Treky than I though. I haven't finished it yet, but it appears to be well written and there it a lot of Klingon mixed in, with translations. I believe Trekies will fine it a good read and worth the time.

    20. This is a book that I'm not sure if I should put that I've read it, or that I constantly reference it. It's a great look into the Klingon culture and the aspects that guide them into honorable lives as well as battle and lives of a warrior.

    21. Awesome book! All of the precepts, like the Chinese Art of War, are applicable to all fields. Highly recommend.
