Here is Stanley Bing at his best, giving you what may be the meanest business book in recent history.
The focus of What Would Machiavelli Do? is on what works and how to get it done. Machiavellians may not get to heaven, but on earth they have a significant edge over the competition. The goal is to learn how to approach problems in a manner that is at once creative, geared toward achieving financial success, and refreshingly amoral.

A cracking read. Practical. Instant applicability.
I read this 7 years ago and I still recommend it. I read it over lunch & caught a plane. On landing ,I followed Stanley's advice and ended a business relationship that wasn't working within the fortnight. I'd been avoiding the problem because I had no idea where to start.
Stanley Bing brings Machiavelli to a modern audience with wit, humour and a dry laconic voice.
