Publisher's summary

Preview:

The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene is a self-help book offering advice on how to gain and maintain power, using lessons drawn from parables and the experiences of historical figures.

Power depends on the relationships between a person and those he or she seeks to control. Powerful people must cultivate their appearances to earn respect and eliminate doubt. They must practice selective honesty, misdirection, and an excess of secrecy to gain a tactical advantage. Timing is central to maintaining power, as is the ability to adapt. The array of strategies available when seeking power include mirroring the opponent's actions and controlling the opponent's options for action. The powerful must also cultivate a relationship with audiences by creating spectacles and feeding their need to believe in the impossible.

PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Very sexist,bias and inaccurate summary

First of all, the actual book tells its readers to look down on dying for a cause, not to die for a cause. The book makes many references to women good and bad who achieved their goals. Actually read the book, instead of skimming the pages

don't waste your time.

Listening to this overview does zero justice to the book. Also, the narrator does shameless plugs to their website to try and get you to buy more of their audio files independent of Audible.com It's classless and tasteless in my opinion. Don't waste your time or money with this garbage.

Old thinking, that has built destructive industry.

I believe in doing well by doing good. This book advocates strategies on how to become a narscisistic psychopath. Unhealthy ploys any emotionally intelligent person can see through quickly.

Awful

Who wants to be read to by a computer? A bad one at that. Constantly cites the author and publisher.

Terrible, complete waste of a credit.

This book is all about overpowering people. I wish I had my money back. I stopped listening after 10 minutes.

The 48 Laws of Power looks down on martyrs.

Robert Greene doesn't promote martyrdom. Instaread states that he promotes martyrdom as an option. Not accurate.

The Mindful Manipulation

I disliked the fact that this book seems to take you on a journey of learning how Manipulate People, Places, Things and Situations.

I am not interested in moving through the World this way. But, good luck to you anyway!
