The 48 Laws of Power

Abridged / Go to Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Robert A. Greene

Narrated By: Don Leslie

Publisher: HighBridge Company

Date: April 2007

Duration: 9 hours 55 minutes

Summary:

Cunning, instructive, and amoral, this controversial bestseller distills 3,000 years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. Law 1: Never Outshine the Master. Law 3: Conceal Your Intentions. Law 7: Get Others to Do the Work for You, but Always Take the Credit. Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally. Law 33: Discover Each Man's Thumbscrew. These are the laws of power in their unvarnished essence-the philosophies of Machiavelli (The Prince), Sun-tzu (The Art of War), Carl von Clausewitz, Talleyrand, the great seducer Casanova, con man Yellow Kid Weil, and other legendary thinkers and schemers. They teach prudence, stealth, mastery of one's emotions, the art of deception, and the total absence of mercy. Like it or not, all have practical applications in real life. Each law is illustrated with examples of observance or transgression drawn from history and featuring such famous figures as Queen Elizabeth I, Henry Kissinger, Mao, Alfred Hitchcock, P.T. Barnum, Haile Selassie, Catherine the Great, and Socrates. Convincing, practical, sometimes shocking, this book will fascinate anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.

    This book is great and I definitely feel like i made the right choice getting the unabridged version. This book is basically a history book, philosophy book, folktale book and self help book all in one. I would highly recommend.

    If you keep an open and objective mind, this book will immensely help you in your personal and professional life. Some might be fooled to interpret the books ideals as nothing more than manipulation. You must be keen enough to understand that human psychology is very complex in nature and this book just helps you navigate it.
