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.

Wow!

Key to power and success. This was one of the best books I've listen in a long time. I can see how these laws can make or break a person. Plan all the way to the end. It's key to achieving your goal, and it's laid out to perfection in this work. A definite must listen.

Recommended.

Recommended. Some of the "Laws" are more helpful than others, but it is definitely worth spending some time reviewing power relationships and makes you think.

Didn't expect that!

Obscene

A psychopath's instruction manual. Interesting for sane people only in that it will allow them to more easily identify the manipulative monsters around them. I imagine that you would have to be an irreparably damaged human being to find this book remotely valuable as a guide for how to conduct yourself amongst others.
