James Madison’s method to guide political discussion is to politics as Lao Tze’s “Art of War” is to battle tactics. His passion and preparedness completely neutralized the fiery orators such as Patrick Henry. Madison was even more amazing considering he wrestled with debilitating anxieties that manifested into physical infirmities. Nonetheless, as debates roared among the Founding Fathers, a building calm would settle-in as they all paused to hear what Madison will say. This book is not just a wonderful historical account of James Madison and his life. It’s also a brilliant examination of civil political tactics that can be applied to any contemporary environment where politics are encountered – government, corporate, and service. Listen to this interesting conversation and then you are encouraged to buy the book.
