I have not yet read the book in its intirely. However, based on the firs few chapters I read, it has propelled me to crave for the next chapter. I find this book very important to my everyday thinking from now on. I planned to live my life by the book. I love the stories that comes along with each idea in the book which basically explains each idea. There is nothing I dislike about the book. I decided to purchased the book because I came across a copy at my uncle's home while I was visiting. The title and the first few pages persuade me to want to own a copy of the book.
This is an incredible book that anyone who is in a position of Power or wants to be should have. The book is laid out so it's easy to understand and the format lends itself to having the "48 laws" stick in your mind. I highly recommend this book to individuals that can't seem to get where they want to be in life.
So many lessons to learn from this book. I have applied it to my profession and have increased much of my personal goals. It has given me guidance on how to succeed quickly and wisely without damaging my reputation or stature. It has given me guidance on a slow methodical approach to achieve vindication against those who are in my way. I have used it against my adversaries and it has gained me the upper hand on most occassions. I have used tactics towards my competitor and I have gained higher ground. In layman's terms: It's a very powerful book that can get you in trouble if not used with caution. It was recommended to me by one of my mentors and it has helped me through out my career. Once I read the contents and the preface - I was hooked to learn more. I even purchased the book for my wife to help her strive forward in life. It has awesome excerpts (in red italics) throughout the book from Aesop, Napoleon, Capone, Machiavelli, Musashi, Gracian, Poe, Herodotus - just to name a few. I didn't abide to all 48 laws - I pick and chose wisely and followed my gut instincts. 48 Laws is a good read and I still reference it once a month. If you don't like it - I'll offer you a free lunch ------A.S.E.,LLC
The contents in this compilation of "power" is a must have for any one looking to move up in their careers, or just looking to fine-tune the tactics you already pocess. I was very pleased with the condition of the book in first print quality...at reasonable price. I did purchase an additional paper back for my girlfriend who is finishing up her MBA.
Man, was this book an awesome book to stumble across. So much valuable and useful information to apply to my life experiences present and past. I have applied a little of it's strategies and POV's to my workplace. It worked but also backfired in one situation. I am more careful on how I use this knowledge now so I believe by most of it's content. Use with much caution but info is good to know!!!!! I really think you will enjoy this book - I couldn't put it down until I finished it.
