    ITEM#: 2500191

    Robert Greene has a degree in classical studies and is the author of several bestselling books, including The 48 Laws of Power, The 33 Strategies of War, The Art of Seduction, and Mastery. He lives in Los Angeles.

    Joost Elffers is the packaging genius behind Viking Studio's Secret Language series, Play with Your Food, and How Are You Peeling?. He lives in New York City.
    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.

      This is a great book for the price. It gives great advice using real situations that occurred in human history. It is very interesting. You can read it straight through or just skip around; starting with the laws that you think you wil benefit from the most. I recommend this to anyone.

      I purchased this book for my brother in law who is a very intelligent business man and loves a good book to read. He called to tell me that he had gotten through maybe a chapter and already couldn't put it down and said he thought it was going to be a really good book.
