In the book thatÂ PeopleÂ magazine proclaimed âbeguilingâ and âfascinating,â Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum.
Some laws teach the need for prudence (âLaw 1: Never Outshine the Masterâ), others teach the value of confidence (âLaw 28: Enter Action with Boldnessâ), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (âLaw 15: Crush Your Enemy Totallyâ). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package,Â The 48 Laws of PowerÂ is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.
