48 Laws of Power
48 Laws of Power | Robert Greene
Before "Mastery, "came "The 48 Laws of Power" the "New York Times" bestseller that started it all Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, "The 48 Laws of Power "is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control. In the book that "People "magazine proclaimed beguiling and fascinating, 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 ( Law 1: Never Outshine the Master ), others teach the value of confidence ( Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness ), and many recommend absolute self-preservation ( Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally ). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, "The 48 Laws of Power "is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game."

I have heard a lot about this book, to be honest it is not what I was expecting, nevertheless I couldn't stop reading it. It is an evil man's step-by-step guide to deceipt & backstabbing, I am sure this book is popular amongst politicians and the mafia. It is useful to recognize power plays in the workspace and life in general. I hope the teachings of this book are not attractive to people, otherwise we will live in a terrible world.

Couldn't make it past the first chapter, the premise "people are evil, cruel, and dishonest - so the only way to get ahead in life is to be even more evil, cruel, and dishonest than everyone else" just doesn't sit well with me.

RATED: ⭐⭐
The cold hard perspective piqued my interest in the beginning. I found myself picking it up every night to validate my "realist" perspective of the world. While I can relate my daily truths in almost all laws in the book, I found it hard to stay interested in the relevant anecdotes.

Who else has read this? Let me know what you think!

This book is almost a bible to me
This book codifies the rules to be powerful as 48 laws..Robert green is from classical studies..He quotes many powerful people like machiavelli,tsun tzu,Clausewitz and many other men and women who welded enormous power in history..
Few of my favorite laws include...Assume formlessness..
Always talk less than necessary...Never comit to anyone..Etc

I think this might have been a book for me to sit and read through instead of listening to as an audiobook. The storyline and examples given for each law were interesting but to fully absorb it I should‘ve read it.

A modern day version of The Prince, the author celebrates Machiavellian rule and the extreme tactics to gain power. The book teaches people to manipulate and do whatever means necessary to get power. An example of traits to look out for in selfcenterd people to avoid.
Reading this gives a guide to what not to do in a leadership role and how history should not be repeated. These type of books are dangerous in the wrong hands. 3.5/10

This is a great book that everyone should read. In my honest opinion, this is an evil book. However, if you're not going to use it for evil you should be aware of them so that you can protect yourself from those who will use it against you.

Did I just watch The 48 Laws of Power (Animated), a 30-minute video on YouTube? Yes, and the intro. Well done.

Intro: https://youtu.be/BdiC-Z5H5gQ
Animated 48 Laws Summary: https://youtu.be/670ZGMBjrPI

And, holy moly, that channel also has an extended animated video for each of the 48 Laws, making for many hours of view time for this popular book! 👍

Robert Green was definitely inspired by Dale Carnegie when he wrote this book. This book is like "how to Win friends and influence people " to the extreme.

Humberto: "In this city anything can happen. This city is going to rule the world. It's the epicenter of power and opportunity. And when those two converge, you have a nuclear explosion. Power should be used with a velvet glove. That's why I'm reading this book. It's about the reason you're sitting here with me. It's about entering action with boldness. For that, you can't be a wilting flower. You have to be open to the flow of time."

Best quote of the nights discussion so far is "What do you think of Chapter 3? Conceal your intentions?" "Frozen taught me that." ???
