Claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, this unabridged version of The Prince is read by Emma Topping. This classic of political writing is Machiavelli's most notorious work. A treatise on gaining and maintaining political power, this is the work that inspired the use of the term "Machiavellian".

Although this is a difficult read, you should read it because it is an accurate description of how people behave and react. The challenge is getting past the strange names, and places. Once you get past that, you can absorb the brillance of Machiavelli.
