The 48 Laws of Power

4.0 2


Powerlessness is perhaps the most dreaded human condition. Greene has distilled 3000 years of history on the subject to produce the 48 laws of power. Each is simple, ingenious and vital for strategic planning. They range from the apparently humble ('never outshine the master') to the sly ('use selective honesty') to the downright ruthless ('crush your enemy totally'). Each law is supported and illustrated by the words of wisdom and analysis of those who have wielded or been subjected to power throughout history. Beautifully designed, this is a must for anyone with an eye on the prize or just on self-preservation. (Kirkus UK)
