Description

The New York Times Bestseller

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, The 48 Laws of Power is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.


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.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    I am so happy to have acess to this book. It teaches me how to stand up for myself and come up as a winner. I have allways wanted to understand human nature see beyond apparences from a psychosocial view regarding power, this book does just that it is a must read. Like every Robert Greene book, it has give me solutions and answers to many questions I had. I think better since I began reading his books, life is hopeful I fear nothing! Does anyone of you know if I get the 48 Laws of Power here from Itunes. Will it be in MP3 so I can listen to it anywhere?

    Pay no mind to those who argue that Greens’s book is a how-to for sharks and ruthless people. The core idea behind 48 Laws of Power is that people are motivated for personal gain. Everyone. Some are better practitioners, but even fewer are those who recognize it in the actions of others. This book stands up well to repeated reading. Indispensible when you’re first joining the workforce, you’ll find new insight reding this in your 40s and 50s in understanding how people work and why they do what they do.
