The 48 Laws of Power By Robert Greene & Joost Elffers Ebook Download
About 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.
Purchased and now pages won’t turn and I’m only able to see the cover
If you don’t give a hoot about anything but your success, this is your book . Robert Greene is your homeboy
This book is touching bases on every aspect of my 33 yrs of living! It’s giving me the answers and point of view I’ve been craving! I’m a mother of six and this book had definitely a game changer
Very powerful book. Grasp the knowledge and apply it to your everyday life and begin to see a change. Take a time to reflect on your past and present events and you can be able to plan for the most successful future.
I loved it.
Read this to learn more about the world around you and how to interact with your fellow humans. Even if you do not always use the laws of power it is important to know them because someone will use them on you.
The last thing we need in this world is a manual on being dishonest and selfish. I suggest trying to be a human being instead.
I think you’ll only like or agree with this book if you think a certain way. If you think that certain way, you’ll know it.
There is a lot of valuable information in this book that makes you pause and think a lot. Using multiple examples throughout history keeps it interesting and better illustrates points made.
Get yourself a hard copy. They are trying to water down the information with typos. 👁
This book is a lot of things. It’s an analysis on power, and an analysis on what Greene believes to be our human nature. It’s rooted very firmly in historical and sociological analysis. Highly recommend
Can someone please Gift me this book I’m need of self growth!
You have got to love Mr. Greene’s hard work that shows in his usage of all types of relevant information and the method he uses to deliver it to the reader.
Why is this digital book the same Price as the paperback?
Just one of those books that once you read it,your outlook on the topic of “power” is never the same.
This book has officially become my all-time favorite book. The tactics inside can be implemented in all contexts of life such as social, career, personal etc...
..... Like law 4 . I don't like to talk much .... But I feel as a sensei I must share this information with you all ..... This book will transform you mentally & spiritually , while causing you to evolve into a complete different being . . Your power will increase ten fold ..... There is allot of other abilities this book grants an individual, but I'm forbidden to speak on ...
A truly great read not for everyone but one of my favorites.
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.
This 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.
anyone who buys this book is completely lost
One of the best books ever written.
Great read for the game of life
If used with good intentions this is an amazing book
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve themselves!
This book is a must read for everybody in da world. Rich or poor this book will empower you.
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.
Cant put into words how helpful this book was. Excellent read.
This book is a little boring but really really good. It has you thinking and reflecting on your position in life at work relationships and how you have handled things in the past. Love it (crazy thing is my brother told me to read this and he's in pension and his gang makes everyone of their "soldiers" read this book" lol. Anyways read this book
Book hasn't loaded for me in 8months. Fully updated iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4, doesn't work anymore on neither. No tech support.
Great book most things you already know but it's brilliantly set up. This is a book that can be referenced at any point in life and that I have labelled a classic
I love this book and I also have the hard copy however it does not work on my Ipad 2. As soon as I turn the pages it closes.... It used to work on my Ipad 1. I have deled and dowloaded the book several times and still the same thing...
Great find except for tons of typographical errors. Someone should seriously proofread these digital copies and for that price, at least give us the benefit of getting the fixed version.
Very POWERFUL reading with great suggestions regarding how to adroitly move about life and work, especially working the politics of CORPORATE AMERICA. MANY TYPOS IN DIGITAL TRANSLATION. MORE typos than I would expect from an upstanding national publisher.
This is a must read for any man and woman who wants to succeed, or just survive in this complicated world. It is amazing how the author had comprehended the entire human strategy history and gathered these laws. Of course it takes tremendous effort and thinking to actually apply these rules in real world.
This book is good and interesting as described by the others. I have nothing to add to their comments. I have 1 complaint though. The grammar is terrible, the electronic book is rife with typos and formatting problems. It is inexplicable as to how this could be but but it makes certain passages very frustrating to read. I presume the the hardcopy book is not this way but it is noticeable and pervades the entire text.
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?
I also have the hard copy, but caring this with you on your IPhone 4.. Is like desert to the brain.. Knowledge power only if you put to use!!
This book is definitely a must read. You will learn a lot. Had to get it on my iPad, iPod and iPhone. Reading the first couple laws in this book, you will identify situations and other aspects that you have been subjected to either subliminally or blatantly. Definitely one of the deepest works I have ever read. Changes your whole perspective and the way you dissect things.
This book will change your life! You'll see people and relationships; romantic, business, or otherwise, in an entirely new way.
By far the single most important business strategy compilation ever published. Move over Sun Tzu, Robert Green has changed the game. Pascal Pakter
Very good work!!!
Got to read!!!!
