Yes, this book give great guidelines on life with others
I did not like the fact that this audio book has NO BOOK MARK. There is no way the listen only one lay or chapter at the time
If you don't know these laws, than you will be unaware when other people use them on you. In business and in personal life, these laws can be very valuable to know. If I knew these laws when I started my business 6 years ago, I'm sure I would have avoided some mistakes I made when dealing with people. I highly recommend this book!
Couldn't get past the first few chapters. Horrible narration (over dramatized), and horrible content... "assume everyone else has an agenda, they're out to get you, life is win/lose, do what it takes, whatever you can get away with, and anyone who believes otherwise is naive".

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.
I’m dissatisfied with the sound quality of the recording – it’s a bit muffled. Also, no matter how high I turn the audio up, the audio level does not increase high enough. Cannot listen to the recording anywhere but in the quiet of my home which defeats the purpose. I’d like to be able to listen to it on-the-go but I can’t hear a thing.
I keep having to rewind because it is hard to pay attention due to the boring style this is read in.
The only way I could digest this is to have the book in front of me :(
I thought that Greene's book on the 48 Laws of Power really laid out an easy to follow pathway of understanding how much power we all have and how to best use it to our benefit while at the same time creating mutually beneficial relationships. I don;t know if most people will feel comfortable in implementing a lot of the techniques because it does call for some sacrifice and courage, but it people are willing, they can have so much more power about themselves and find themselves enjoying a more enjoyable life.
Power is not a bad thing if it improves the quality of ones life and the lives of others along the way.
I really enjoyed reading it.
Well read -- the narrator reads it as if he understands it. If you understand what this book is about, it's extremely well done as a whole: core principles of how power is won, lost, or held, richly illustrated by historical examples. It's not a "grab power quick" kind of book, but more for those who would like to understand the larger stage of planning, plotting, and human emotion on which power struggles are carried out.
I liked it because it's accurate, from my 20+ year perspective in corporate American life, but also because the book brings motive and human nature into perspective, and not just the mechanics of power. And personally, I enjoy the format of presenting one historical observation and one historical transgression of each law: it gives a good context and clarifies what the author is saying.
