The 48 laws of power is a very interesting book. Sure there is a devious spin on each example. Take that with a grain of salt. With that said, the distilled patterns of human nature do offer a thought-provoking perspective to view the world. I enjoyed the history as well.
A must read
An intriguing topic which is cleverly presented.
The narrator is easy to listen to.
The title is appropriate
The voice and tones of the narrator transfer emotions that help you to Understand The Power and See it as what it is.....A psychological game played every single day, even when you don't know it....
After having learned so much I am amazed at the opportunities I have to put this new found knowledge into practice. That I am afraid at how well I will do.
Reading the book title, description, and comments, I expected a collection of shady tips for dishonest success. Instead, I found a well tought out book, full of historical examples. The structure is good. The logic is good. I agree with other reviewers: I don't plan on using many of the "laws" presented in this book, but I'm glad I'm more aware of them now.
I must say this book has explained everything I always had questions about. I just wish knew about this years ago so I could've had a way easier time in maneuvering in the world.
The 48 Laws of Power makes quite a lot of sense as told and understood by the author. Greene references 12th - 18th century figures to illustrate his points and he does it well.
Forget Tony Robbins .. read this book if you truly want that dark secret about what power is, how to get it and how to use it. A rare find, I rarely recommend it as in the wrong hands, this is dangerous stuff.
