There are many books written about the 36 Strategies and the different methods to implement them. They are taught to Esau from childhood and are used by the mother in her daily shopping and by the general on the battlefield.
Esau's 36 methods of War.
"The greatest victory is the victory gained without battle."
1 - Hide important things in the open for all to see. ( This means to create a front that eventually becomes imbued with an atmosphere or impression of familiarity, within which the strategist may maneuver unseen while all eyes are trained
to see obvious familiarities. )
2 - Help save a state from evil forces by invading them.
3 - Use surrogates to do what you don't wish to be seen doing.
4 - Make impossible demands upon potential victims.
5 - Start a house fire and help save the contents.
6 - Talk one thing - do something else.
7 - Make something from nothing.
8 - Use an unknown technique.
9 - Help the enemy destroy himself with internal dissensions.
10 - Smile with knife in hand.
11 - Sacrifice friends to win victory for a greater good.
12 - Quietly pick up unattended property as your own.
13 - Make a hidden enemy disclose himself by creating a disturbance.
14 - Pretend the worthless is valuable.
15 - Entice an enemy from his place of strength.
16 - Never attack a desperate enemy.
17 - Exchange something worthless for something valuable.
18 - Make every attempt to capture the friendship of the leader of a powerful opposition.
19 - If unable to answer problems or ideas - remove or discredit the author or authors of the problems.
20 - Replace an enemies loss of direction with your own program.
21 - Pretend the cicada's empty shell is alive. (This means leaving behind false appearances created for strategic
purposes. Like the cicada shell, the facade remains intact, but the real action is now elsewhere.)
22 - Denounce friends to establish believable "bona fides".
23 - Keep captive populations intimidated.
24 - Promise one thing - deliver another.
25 - Attack enemies within reach - keep others neutral.
26 - The hidden message.
27 - Pretend not to notice the approach of an enemy.
28 - Destroy the bridge. ( Maneuver enemies into a point of no return by baiting them with what look like advantages and opportunities.)
29 - Be wise by playing the fool. ( Dazzle and deceive the eyes of opponents by showy displays.)
30 - Provoke strong emotion - we good enemy bad.
31 - The beauty trap. (Also known as the "honey pot".)
32 - If weak, appear weaker than you really are.
33 - Use double agents.
34 - Self inflicted wounds. (Inflict minor injury on oneself to gain the enemy's trust, consider 911)
35 - Scheme in continuous circles (Interlocking stratagems) When facing a more powerful enemy, you don't oppose by force,
and don't concentrate all your resources on only one avenue of strategy; you keep different plans operating simultaneously in an overall scheme.
36 - When all else fails - Run !
