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 infamous strategists. The 48 Laws of Power will fascinate any listener interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.

Super useful information for today's world. Some of the laws are unethical for me and I probably would not use them, but still is good to be aware of them in case they are being used in me. Great stories!

The story is great, but to me it is more a biography than a book about the art of learning, since it spends more time relating the author's personal anecdotes than distilling the learning process, let alone the art of it. The reader is left to figure that out on his/her own.

The whole thesis on how habits work is great and very revealing and useful. I just wish the author didn't spend so much time on specific details about his stories and just went to the point. At times it felt like one was listening to a novel.

Excellent survey of jazz history. No wonder why this book has become a standard at university jazz history programs. This edition is updated with many names and trends that make the book much more relevant today. The audible edition is great too. The reader speaks in a very clear way, which is specially important for us non-native English speakers.
