The 48 Laws of Power – Robert Greene

Review From User :

There is not much to be said about Robert Greene's masterpiece. I have referenced it here countless times and I consider it the cornerstone of power and influence. In 480 pages Robert Greene manages to dissect the idea of power and present all those subtle rules that assemble it in a masterful way.

I won't lie to you. When I first got my hands on the book, although its narrative absorbed me almost instantly, it also awakened feelings of scare and insecurity inside me. I wasn't sure if I was ready to face and digest the truths this book was revealing in such a raw and direct way. I guess what made them so frightening was their amoral simplicity. "Get others to do the work for you, but always take the credit," "Discover each man's thumbscrew," "Make other People come to you - use Bait if Necessary," "Play a Sucker to Catch a Sucker - Seem Dumber than your Mark," to name but a few.

The laws cull their principles from many great schemers throughout history, from Sun-Tzu to Talleyrand, from Casanova to con man Yellow Kid Weil.

Whether you are hungry for power or you are just looking to get some more information on the topic, this book is an all-time classic that will provide extreme insight into human reasoning and behaviors.
