A Must Have Resource for Every Art of War Enthusiast.Strategic planning with The Art of War is now possible. The effective application of Sun Tzu's Art of War was a guessing game prior to this organization of the book. Brace Barber discarded proverbs meaningless to modern society in order to focus the reader, eliminate distraction and allow for clear strategic thinking. He then reorganized the Art of War in line with accepted strategic categories necessary for systematically analyzing a problem and developing a highly stable course of action. This book is your key to an advanced strategic IQ.

  1. See what others cannot see. Organize and Step through information in a way that allows you to see opportunities that others miss.
    1. Handle massive amounts of information. Prioritize information and focus on the most important aspects of a problem.
      1. Make the complex understandable. Prioritize, organize and justify in a way that allows everyone to see why a decision was made.
        1. Be decisive. Confidence in a course of action comes when the scope of the problem is identified, and courses of action are designed to meet the critical needs in the best possible way. People can then decide and execute with confidence.
          1. Effectively engage your imagination. Imagination or intuition within the framework of priorities and objectives is powerful. This process does not decide for you, it gives you the opportunity to be imaginative and innovative while still solving the problem.
            1. Lead and communicate with a team. Organize and distribute the proper information at the proper times to the proper people. Then manage and lead the confidently-selected course of action.

Nevertheless, UPB provides ship-to-home service.

Unless and until we move our on-line fulfillment team to different premises, everything you purchase from us ships from warehouses outside of Berkeley.

Much of what we used to carry on store shelves is available, except for very expensive books, used books, and titles fallen between printings.

Certain limitations apply:

  • Sometimes we may have to split an order because books are stocked at different warehouses.
  • Thus, we may remove items from a multi-book order and ask you to resubmit them on a separate order.
  • Many high demand titles ship fairly quickly. Most other titles travel from back east, adding 2 to 5 days to delivery
  • Although we love you in Canada, Latin America, and else where, U.S. orders only.
  • Certain publishers give us low merchant discounts on certain titles, sometimes no discount at all. To be honest, we've had to raise prices on these, ranging from 5% to 30% above list.

You can also purchase eBooks and audio books through us. Distributed by Hummingbird, they include publications from the major trade publishers. Just access the menu link or the sidebar image above.

We greatly appreciate your support of the store with your book orders. Need a book without our current shopping limitations? We recommend Bookshop. View our recommendations on Bookshop, then search for whatever book you'd like.

Should you have questions, email us via our contact form. Since none of are keeping regular hours, it may take a day to get back with you.
