Publisher Description

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature.

In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum.
 
Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

Mwa time ,

Yep

Great examples from history on how
people can be incredibly naive, stupid, bold, manipulative, cunning, wise and calculating.

Great lessons for both the fool, weary and the wise ... a really great audio.

If life is a game of chess, then this is the manual for that game !

Kylecm ,

Good book, worth the read.

I definitely learned a few goings from this book, and it was certainly an interesting read. Maybe don't take all the laws too seriously though, otherwise you'll drive yourself mad lol
