    This book is well-written and offers good lessons for following and analyzing international events. Unfortunately, the quick pace of the book means that the historical examples chose to illustrate these lessons in each chapter cannot do justice to the complexity of the true events. This is particularly evident in the examination of the security dilemma facing the US and China in the East and South China Seas. Additionally, the ten lessons merely restate principles of good analysis and logical fa This book is well-written and offers good lessons for following and analyzing international events. Unfortunately, the quick pace of the book means that the historical examples chose to illustrate these lessons in each chapter cannot do justice to the complexity of the true events. This is particularly evident in the examination of the security dilemma facing the US and China in the East and South China Seas. Additionally, the ten lessons merely restate principles of good analysis and logical fallacies that any good analyst learns to avoid as a matter of tradecraft. Despite being a book about political risk, Huisman does not describe how political risk analysts can use these lessons to improve their analysis and better serve their clients. It is one thing to understand how mistakes can be made, but it is another matter to integrate them into one's analysis.

    Using a set of mostly political examples (there is one vignette about the Beatles v. the Rolling Stones), Hulsman illustrates both the problems in decision making as well as the problems in political analysis and prediction at the international level. Designed for laypersons (that is nonacademics and nonanalysts), he shows why analysts often get their predictions wrong. In doing so, he also makes a strong argument for why the tenets of realism are better for predicting state behavior than lookin Using a set of mostly political examples (there is one vignette about the Beatles v. the Rolling Stones), Hulsman illustrates both the problems in decision making as well as the problems in political analysis and prediction at the international level. Designed for laypersons (that is nonacademics and nonanalysts), he shows why analysts often get their predictions wrong. In doing so, he also makes a strong argument for why the tenets of realism are better for predicting state behavior than looking at state culture or individual decision makers. His argument to be a 'chess player' reminded me of Zbigniew Brezinski's THE GRAND CHESSBOARD. I would put in my recommend list for students.

    This book is very clear and concise. I came out of reading it with a new perspective on the pitfalls of waving off eccentric or strange geopolitical players. In today's world, we must study those players we might ignore as crazy. This book is very clear and concise.
