Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills three thousand years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. It outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun-tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other great thinkers. Some laws teach the need for prudence, the virtue of stealth, and many demand the total absence of mercy, but like it or not, all have applications in real life. Illustrated through the tactics of Queen Elizabeth I, Henry Kissinger, P. T. Barnum, and other famous figures who have wielded--or been victimized by--power, these laws will fascinate any reader interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.--From publisher description.… (lisätietoja)

An immoral but true depiction of the ways of the powerful... ( )
  volfy | Jun 26, 2021 |
Early in my career, an executive arrived early to a meeting and asked one of the finance people for a department’s quarterly numbers. He listened, then nodded silently about the bad numbers. When the other people arrived, including the manager of the aforementioned department, he called the meeting to order.

He asked the manager for his quarterly numbers, though he already knew them. When the hapless manager finished his report, the executive glared at him across the table for a few seconds. Then he stood up, picked up the report, slammed it down on the table and said simply, “F**k!” It was a performance I will never forget. He was observing Robert Greene’s Law 17:

"Keep others in suspended terror: cultivate an air of unpredictability….

"You sometimes need to strike without warning, to make others tremble when they least expect it. It is a device that the powerful have used for centuries."

Robert Greene has been called “a modern Machiavelli” primarily because of his cult classic, The 48 Laws of Power. At its core, the book attempts the same thing Machiavelli’s book attempts: to describe how to get and keep power. It is not concerned in the least with morality.

Each chapter is only a few pages, and the book can easily be dipped into now and again, rather than read from front to back. A chapter will focus on one of the 48 laws, and each is composed of 5 subsections. First is the Law, a one-sentence statement of how to behave. Then follows Judgment, a brief, 2-3 sentence interpretation of the law.

Transgression of the Law, the third section, is usually a historical story about someone who failed to observe the law, and an interpretation of how that person could have saved himself from the consequences of the transgression.

Observance of the Law is also a historical story, but this time of a person who observed the law and the rewards reaped from doing so.

Finally is Keys to Power. Greene uses examples from history to explain how to observe the law, pitfalls to be wary of, and quotes and images to help further illustrate the law and its importance.

This isn’t Dale Carnegie. Most of the laws describe behavior that one might describe as immoral or deceitful. A few of the Laws:

Law 3: Conceal your intentions

Law 14: Pose as a friend, work as a spy

Law 33: Discover each man’s thumbscrew

Law 42: Strike the shepherd and the sheep will scatter

The 48 Laws of Power is considered by some to be an underground classic. I recommend it, and think it should be read in the same spirit as The Prince: you can follow all of the laws to the letter, pick and choose those you find to be useful, or learn why others might behave in ways you don’t quite understand. But, unlike The Prince, you probably know someone who has actually read it. ( )

I initially enjoyed this book, but further I listened the more realized that only small tidbits of the proposed "laws" can really be applied by the average person. No, it didn't make me "evil" or "immoral" or any other edgy term that others proclaim the book allowed them to be, maybe if I was more business savvy, but even then it's unlikely. The vignettes are very interesting, but by law 40 I found that the book had dragged on, overstayed its welcome with vaguely similar laws, without much of a concise point.

If you do ever listen to it, like I did, listen to the High Bridge version, since the narrator is perfect for the contents of the book. ( )

Well-organized and written, but...

This is a book that codifies principles of power from about 3000 years of human history. It's interesting, but at the end of the day, it's about manipulating people. It didn't sit well with me at all. Much of it is counter-Biblical and selfish. I was arguing with the concepts through my entire time reading it. I can't recommend it to people as it will lead you to a selfish existence.

That said, it is an interesting excursion into the depravity of humanity. If humanity had it's own confession or counter-Bible, this would probably be part of its canon. It's interesting to look at at this juncture.

But it's not for the weak or young reader. Without a good filter, it will infect your worldview. Be careful. ( )
