The 48 Laws of Power will fascinate any listener interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.
Great book but..
I only have the second half of the book. I don’t know what happened, when i first bought it I had the whole book but now when I come back to it it starts on Track 29 (The 25th Law).If someone could help me get back the full book that’d be great!
Ignore negative reviews. People who are complaining about the book are missing the point. The book isn’t trying to turn you into a psychopathic evil being. This book delves into true nature of human being. Being aware of the nature of people and their behavior will only serve you right. This book does not turn you into an evil person. It only offers you tools and insights to be prepared when you are dealing with various characters and situations. If anything it tells you HOW TO behave in order to avoid getting abused by EVERYONE around you. That alone should make you want to read and understand this manual.
Overly dramatic stretch
Terrific for those aspiring to control a frat house. Does this come with a can of Monster and Axe Body Spray?
