Unexpectedly good read

I didn't really know what to expect going into this book but am very glad I read it. It's very inspiring and an all around great mindset book.

All in all, this book was fine. There's some good advice in some of the laws, and lots of interesting stories, history, and parables throughout that illustrate the laws. All this book did for me was highlight that I am NOT a power-grabber. So many of the laws are focused on how to use others for your personal gain ... and that's just very against my philosophical programming. Still, interesting stuff. Just not my cup of tea.

A Machiavellian exploration of the dynamics of power and influence, "The 48 Laws of Power" by Robert Greene aims to illustrate the power dynamics in various contexts, from personal relationships to politics and business. Each of the 48 laws is accompanied by historical anecdotes and examples that illustrate its application. Critics might argue that it promotes manipulation, deceit, and ruthless behavior in the pursuit of power, but I appreciate its insights into human nature and the dynamics of power. It’s very much a practical guide for navigating complex social situations and achieving one's goals, particularly in competitive environments. There are ethical implications either direction, but one thing is for sure, there is no nobility in poverty of mind. This is a thought-provoking read.… (mais)

More like an instruction manual on "How to be an Asshole".
