Book on Boyd

osinga-boyd.jpgFrans Osinga’s book on Boyd, “Science, Strategy and War: The Strategic Theory of John Boyd” has been issued in paperback. Previously, it was $90 for a copy. The new paperback edition is $35.95, and is easily worthwhile at that price.

Science, Strategy and War is an academic analysis of the John Boyd’s thinking and its origin. It may not be as good an introduction as Coram’s book but it goes into far more detail about the theories he put forth, challenges narrow views of them, and provides a degree of academic respectability the work hasn’t previously had.
