The book itself is 144 Pages, hardcover, and digest-sized. The cover is cloth-wrapped, debossed with a foil-stamped wheel.
Your courtiers will flatter you, my lord, that you can compel obedience by the power of your noble birth alone. But you must exercise your rule through human beings prone to failure and to treachery. It is not enough, young prince, to inherit your father's name. You must follow his warlike example if you would preserve your life, your honor and your throne. As the foremost amongst your father's generals, until I was slandered by lesser men, I can teach you the true and bloody art of how to rule.
