In Part 1, we learn why Tyrion Lannister has a knack for staying alive. He is constantly getting into trouble and talking his way out. But Tyrion's genius is replicable if you learn how he thinks, and these skills are all useful for activists who want to make the world a better place.
In Part 2, we learn why the Stark family is always getting betrayed. These lessons are equally useful as they show us what not to do.
