    The Prince is considered the all-time best book on political strategy. It has of late become a much-referred-to book for all competitive situations. Machiavelli's name is associated closely with his philosophy, as he well deserves. His other works are worth reading or hearing, as well, especially his Art of War and Belfagor: The Devil Who Took a Wife.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this version of Machiavelli's "The Prince." Other versions are probably better. The reader mispronounces most of the Italian names which are crucial to the text; why he was not given better coaching on this, I cannot imagine (he has difficulty with some English words as well). It's very distracting, and detracts from the work.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/A


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bill DeWees’s performances?

    No.


    Could you see The Prince being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.
