The Prince

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Niccolo Machiavelli

Narrated By: Nigel Carrington

Publisher: Naxos Audiobooks

Date: August 2011

Duration: 3 hours 13 minutes


The Prince (1532) is a treatise that systematically charts the best strategies for successful governing. It unapologetically places realism above idealism, showing would-be kings how to get what they want while appearing to be generous and honourable, and advocates that the means 'cruelty, duplicity and terror' justify the ends of secure monarchical rule. But it can also be read as the work of a secret republican subtly undermining the despotism of the ruling Medici family. Hugely influential for nearly five centuries, and the reason the word 'Machiavellian' has its place in English, The Prince retains its status as the archetypal political primer.

    Well written and spoken. Informative, great insight into mentalities of great leaders and those that fell from greatness. I enjoyed it.
