    Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills 3,000 years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. This bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun-tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other great thinkers.

    Story

    Nothing but a broken MP3 player could have made this a better listening experience. This is 25% history which was ok and 75% how to be a liar and over all bad person. If teaching yourself how to stroke your ego while stepping on and hurting everyone as you go is your goal, this book is perfect!

    Have you ever seen something that wasn't really there? Heard someone call your name in an empty house? Sensed someone following you and turned around to find nothing? Hallucinations don't belong wholly to the insane. Much more commonly, they are linked to sensory deprivation, intoxication, illness, or injury. People with migraines may see shimmering arcs of light or tiny, Lilliputian figures of animals and people.

    Story

    Very informative and interesting but gets off topic a bit towards the middle of the book when it becomes a short history of Oliver Sacks early drug experiences. Over all this book is worth a listen.. Its only real downfall is the narration. Why Dan Woren felt the need to give accents to each quote, one will never know. Why, no matter what nationality, every accent performed sounds like Ricardo Montalbán is even more of a mystery.
