I don't agree with all of the laws the author covers such as manipulation, but that doesn't mean one couldn't gain power from some or all of these.
Great narrator and I enjoyed the historical references
History teaches people about our past. However Robert Greene's 48 Laws of Power teaches much more than that. It utilizes important moments of history where certain figures acted on emotion or other forms of influence to display their power. Each law in this book is accompanied by a story where someone has used it's tenets in their past to accumulate success, wealth, or peace of mind. It can roam off at times and get a bit boring but I highly recommend this book to anybody trying to master influence or those who aspire to be a writer. If you watch "House of Cards", you can directly relate the laws in this book to the tools used by Frank Underwood in the series. 4/5
I enjoyed the book. A bit of history, knowledge, and food for thought. Whether you are new to or thinking about management, in management already, or you would just like to strengthen the inner manager in you this book is a great read.
I liked the content of the book but it was read way too slow. I wished I would have read the book, I had to fight from falling asleep.
How not to give your power away. It is not about controlling power as it is to controlling yourself and the moment that you are in.
I wish he would have read faster with more emotion.
