    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

    After the first few laws I wasn't sure what I got myself into .. My first thought was "What kind of person would enjoy listening to this garbage". Then I came back to read the reviews and I found several other people who thought the same thing.

    Either way I found myself listening a little bit more. The more I listened the more I found myself enjoying this audiobook.

    Why do I say this? Because I don't see this as a "how to guide". I see this as two things 1. A history lesson .. If you dont learn from the past you are bound to repeat it.
    2. YES some of these laws are sick and manipulative, but welcome to the real world. There are people that think like this.

    Final thought:
    The 48 Laws of power is a step by step how to guide, you have to listen between the lines and realize that the world is not all puppy dogs and rainbows. This book shows you how the world is and you can learn from the lessons presented.
