Inhaltsangabe

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.

careful: a amoral book here

The book has quite a gloomy, even depressing perspective on social dynamics and behaviour. Some "laws" are common sense, some inspire you to think, some are nasty. The reader is excellent. Perfect for this book.

Here the first 10 "laws of power" so you get an idea of what the book is about:

Law 1: Never outshine the master
Law 2: Never put too much trust in friends, learn to use enemies
Law 3: Conceal your intentions
Law 4: Always say less than necessary
Law 5: So much depends on reputation – guard it with your life
Law 6: Court attention at all cost
Law 7: Let others to do the work for you, but always take credit
Law 8: Make other people come to you – use bait if necessary
Law 9: Win through your actions, never through argument
Law 10: Infection: Avoid the unhappy and the unlucky...

All laws are illustrated by historical events, "interpretation of the laws", things you have to be carefull when applying the "laws".

Taucht ein in die Geschichte der Macht!

Ein gewaltiges Werk, was viel Research von Herrn Green voraussetzt. Jedes Machzgesetz ist sehr fundiert herausgearbeitet und anschaulich anhand von Beispielen erklärt. Sehr gelungen, imposant und empfehlenswert!

waste of time

exemples from historical periods we know almost nothing. anedoctes from kings and princes from the XVII century. The author thinks that power is that something Machiavelli wrote about. 48 laws with boring stories and bla bla bla. book returned. the book is well read though.

Not my kind of the book.

Too many long historical passages, which are irrelevant to the modern world, I grew too tired listening to.
