Taking the lessons Machiavelli recorded in his political masterpiece The Prince, Jonathan Powell, Tony Blair's Chief of Staff, shows how they can still apply today. Illustrating each of Machiavelli's maxims with a description of events that occurred during Tony Blair's time as Prime Minister, Powell provides a gripping account of life inside Number 10 and draws lessons from those experiences for anyone today who has access to the levers of power.

"Relevant and thoroughly enjoyable"
Part memoir, part treatise on modern political leadership using Machiavelli's writings as a convenient framework, Jonathan Powell's book was both enjoyable and informative. The narration was well paced, coming across as authoritative. Highly recommended especially for political junkies.
"Interesting but a bit sanctimonious"
Definitely worth a listen, shame narrator has such a smug tone, the author really has enough of that on his own (deserved in some ways) and it spoils it a bit.
