Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills three thousand 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.

    Scary in the wrong hands. Clear description of how sociopaths work. I need a shower.

    To be honest, I began reading this book with resentment. Most of what the author was advocating seemed diabolical and immoral. I continued reading with the goal of learning what power tricks to avoid in others. And in the context, the book was enlightening.

    As I continued reading, my position softened. There were still some aspects that I would not emulate but with each successive law, I found myself being won over to the arguments and appreciating the lessons. One or two of the lessons even had personal significance to me and I felt I could really improve my relationships by employing their wisdom.

    One might say this book needed to be written. Taken at face value, it is cruel and amoral. Taken as an interpretation of history, politics, and personal conflicts, it is extraordinarily incisive and factual. A plethora of examples and anecdotes taken from all over the world and exemplified in various philosophical, political, and socio-economic schools of thought clearly demonstrate each point without betraying any particular bias. Written from a cynical angle, the book is about how to recognize, defend against, and be above the practice of these power plays, rather than about promoting antisocial behaviors.

    Changed my mind, I thought it was a great book, but the content may be somewhat questionable after all.

    I hated every word of this manual for the soulless. It's a perfect example of exactly what's wrong with Big Pharma, big business, Wall Street, and in short capitalism as it's currently practiced. This book, which is kinda-sorta a synthesis of many previous Me First directives (Machiavelli leaps to mind), is a handbook on how to fuck over everyone you come in contact with, in order for you to get "ahead" and "succeed". It'd be awesome for sociopaths and wanna-be-CEOs. It plunged me into despair. Parts of it actually raised gooseflesh on my arms while I was reading, I was so freaked out.

    Repellent. Utterly amoral. Reprehensible. Negative 300 million zillion stars.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I am looking forward to reading 33 strategies of war also by robert greene..
  • (3/5)
    Two points only for the content - though the stories are quite entertaining - one additional star for the editor and the beautiful typesetting. Look at it and enjoy the historical stories but don't expect much enlightenment about the 'laws of power'.
  • (4/5)
    A great book not because of any particularly valuable insight but rather because Greene does a wonderful job summarizing the insights of others. This book should be read slowly, digested over time. There is too much information in it to be read quickly, in say, a weekend. Read a chapter. Think about how it applies to your life. Try breaking the rule - or obeying it until you get to absurdities. Try them on family members or strangers. I think, over time, you'll see that many of the laws are very useful. I should say, too, that the book is very dry. It reads almost like a textbook. For those that are looking to learn - this is a plus. For others, you might struggle finding the motivation to finish the text.

    Interesting, but a little unorganized and the flow is very choppy
  • (4/5)
    Powerful, to the extent it's almost evil. But it's practical and also interesting history filled with worthy anecdotes. The cigar-smoking escapee from Mcarthyism was shared three times and a few of the examples seemed a bit contrived, but all in all, this Elffers production is a great piece of work. It makes top shelf.

    Good... if only I could make myself finish it. I think maybe "The Art of Seduction" would have been a better choice for me.
  • (4/5)
    Interesting idea with lots of illustrative stories and example of the principles. It does make the reader reflect on why did x fail and y succeed. But not sure if it wanted to be an academic review of power or a series of popular histories of power. Useful to name types of power plays for the ones we see in the office. It does tend to see power as being in the person rather then an interaction between the leader, environment and followers. It makes the same mistake of any mono-paradigm in assuming that human interactions can only be understood from one perspective. Hence can be over cynical but if linked to strategies of influence then more useful. But repetitive and once read...so what?
