About this item

Before Mastery, came The 48 Laws of Power the New York Times bestseller that started it all

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.

5.0 stars by 1HunDredd

This book focuses on the 48 well explicated Laws of Power...it narrows down exactly what actions...to take if you are to surround yourself with power,arm yourself against it...or just to review the aspects of power...this book is a basic instructional motivation guide to success in my opinion...and very inspiring. I read this book a year ago when I checked it out from a local library...it is a MUST HAVE,when I tried to check it out again a week after returning it...the book itself was declared "UNAVAILABLE" and "LOST" in all libraries in my area...this book is truly a best seller and anyone in possession of this book should cherish the knowledge and philosophy it holds... I bought this book from Walmart online June 15th 2012 and it arrived on June 29th I highly recommend it
