Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills three thousand years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. It outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun-tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other great thinkers. Some laws teach the need for prudence, the virtue of stealth, and many demand the total absence of mercy, but like it or not, all have applications in real life. Illustrated through the tactics of Queen Elizabeth I, Henry Kissinger, P. T. Barnum, and other famous figures who have wielded--or been victimized by--power, these laws will fascinate any reader interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.--From publisher description.… (mer)

Well-organized and written, but...

This is a book that codifies principles of power from about 3000 years of human history. It's interesting, but at the end of the day, it's about manipulating people. It didn't sit well with me at all. Much of it is counter-Biblical and selfish. I was arguing with the concepts through my entire time reading it. I can't recommend it to people as it will lead you to a selfish existence.

That said, it is an interesting excursion into the depravity of humanity. If humanity had it's own confession or counter-Bible, this would probably be part of its canon. It's interesting to look at at this juncture.

But it's not for the weak or young reader. Without a good filter, it will infect your worldview. Be careful. ( )

I enjoyed it, but it's not for everyone, Thomas Cromwell shows up only once but Henry the VIII appeared at least twice? ( )

self-projections masked as interpretations of historical events, re-reads them as "laws of power." Foundationally flawed, mostly attributes causations to non-causes; e.g. X was powerful. X hid motives. Therefor hiding motives will make one powerful...actually commits many types of fallacies (petitio principii; argumentum ad verecundiam; etc. I could tick them off)...some suggestions weren't merely displays of flawed reasoning, they were questionable on ethical and moral grounds. For example, the eleventh law "learn to keep people dependent on you" reads more like a description of an abusive mentality (tyranny really) than the useful advice it pretends to be...don't just make them dependent, "learn..." the book advises. In addition to the logical fallacies, I found fact-checking problems. Cited events were often grotesquely out of their historical context, Newton's sarcasm was wasted on this book...so was Teslas's endurance...so bad...such a shame...this book gives power a bad name…. even assuming the book was effective (that would be a hugely invalid assumption btw) the “power” one gains would not be sustainable…it’s a shame….so bad. I felt I had an ethical responsibility to return the book to seller.

It is difficult to categorize a book like this. It is very Machiavellian in terms of the emphasis on obtaining and keeping power, but there are caveats. The author has a series of at least five other books that are somewhat related in thematic material.

Using historical accounts of incidents, battles and politics, Greene has collated 48 laws (as he calls them) of ways to wrest power and control from other persons. Each chapter is one law, and is illustrated with anecdotes from past history. At the end of each law, after he explains and demonstrates it effectiveness, the author then gives a short corollary which is a warning that the law may not be effective in every incident and when it might bite you back.

The historical references are what kept my attention to the end. If this is your type of book, I would recommend it. ( )
