Robert Greene is the author of the book “48 Laws of Power”, the New York Times bestsellers.
The definitive blueprint for anybody interested in acquiring, watching, or protecting against ultimate power – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature – this multi-million-copy New York Times blockbuster is amoral, clever, brutal, and instructional.
Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws, drawing on the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz, as well as the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum, in a book that People magazine called “beguiling” and “fascinating.”
Some rules emphasize the importance of caution (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), while others emphasize the importance of boldness (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), while yet others advocate total self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, on the other hand, has one thing in common: a desire for ultimate dominance.
The 48 Laws of Power are great for conquest, self-defense, or simply understanding the rules of the game, and they come in a bold and appealing two-color box.
The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, The 33 Strategies of War, and The 50th Law are all New York Times bestsellers by Robert Greene. Mastery, his much awaited fifth book, delves into the lives of famous historical personalities like Charles Darwin, Mozart, Paul Graham, and Henry Ford, distilling the characteristics and universal components that made them masters.
