MUST BE LISTEN!

This is an overview of the actual book “The 48 Laws of Power.“ Kind of like an abbreviated for the full book. It provides a potential reader enough information regarding this book’s content to determine if we want to invest the extra money and time to actually buy and read the entire book.

Great Summary.

The 48 Laws of Power is a self-help book that offers advice on how to gain and maintain power. The book sounds more like a how-to book for a confidence artist than a book that anyone with a sense of integrity and morals should want to follow.

Best for Beginners.

While the points that are made seem to be genuinely common human reactions they do not ascribe to the best side societal activity. Listening through this summary will give you a better understanding.

Good Job.

Greene uses parables and examples of historical figures to illustrate his points, but his advice to be selectively honest, use misdirection, and maintain an excess of secrecy hardly seem the traits one would want in a leader, or even a colleague.

Like this whole information.

I would recommend to my students, other than as a ‘how-not-to’ guide. Thanks to Instead for an comprehensive summary that lets an unwary listener know what’s inside a book before buying.

Most important.

The 48 laws of power are a bit too severe and impractical for everyday life. However this made them quick to listen and understand.

Wonderful summary.

The 48 Laws of Power are essentially bullet points anyway - this summary took me about 10 minutes to read through and I feel like I got the same amount of information. I recommend it for those interested in quickly absorbing the concepts discussed in the unabridged version.

Extraordinary book.

About the summary itself, it does an effective job of hitting the highlights of the book, but it could have done a slightly better job at fully discussing the key takeaways. Some of the analysis was a little thin. Overall, it was quick way to learn about the book though. I received the summary for my honest review.
