The 48 Laws of PowerRobert Greene & Joost Elffers

The 48 Laws of Power

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature.

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.

Smh.....Waaaaaayyyyy too many typos!!!!! I have the print copy, I suggest reading that as this is misleading, too many words are mis-spelled and when you go to define them, NOTHING!!! That does not do the readers justice at all..Score: 5/5

Before you read this book...You must know that you should not compare this book when it comes to having power in real life scenarios. this book is mostly only fitting for work places/corporate. for example, for those out there who works at a really good job where you have a CEO and you want to be on the CEOs level. or for example if you are working in anything as big as a mayor and you want to know how to be able to say the right things this is perfect..Score: 5/5

This book is okay, I guess...While several of the laws can be used today I suppose, I found many of the laws to metaphorically be outdated. Then at the end of every chapter, which was probably 5-10 more pages than it should be, the author spent two paragraphs to 'debunk' the respective law itself - thus making all chapters contradictory at best. Probably won't be re-reading the entire book, but may come back to a couple of the chapters that seemed relevant..Score: 3/5

Content good, format bad.There are plenty of reviews explaining how great this book is. My beef is that the conversion to ePub format has not done this work justice. It appears as if the print copy of the book was scanned using poor OCR technology. There are entire paragraphs that are almost complete gibberish because lowercase l's are substituted with 1's or backslashes and other similar typos. This seems especially prevalent during sections that are italicized. The original book would not have been allowed to be released this way so if you're going to charge people for the digital copy some proofreading needs to done. And those of us who have already purchased the iBooks copy should be entitled to a fixed version once it is released, otherwise why would we continue to support you?.Score: 1/5

Ebook full of errors, unreadableThis book itself is easily a 5-star read. Unfortunately, the iBooks digital version is a mess. What starts as a few confusing typost quickly gives way to bizarre formatting errors. At one point, sentences from two separate parts of a chapter are mixed up on after another, requiring decoding to read. In another place, half a chapter is simply missing and the next chapter begins as if it were over. (Perhaps the over half of that chapter is floating around somewhere else in the book; I’m not far enough along to know it yet.) Even in areas without these egregious mixups, there are frequent typos that make me think the ebook was scanned from a paper copy. Reviews indicate others have noticed these same errors; save your money and get a hard copy instead..Score: 1/5

A must readPay no mind to those who argue that Greens’s book is a how-to for sharks and ruthless people. The core idea behind 48 Laws of Power is that people are motivated for personal gain. Everyone. Some are better practitioners, but even fewer are those who recognize it in the actions of others. This book stands up well to repeated reading.
