The 48 Laws of Power (English) 01 Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs. 446
A moral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distils three thousand years of the history of power into forty-eight well-explicated laws. As attention-grabbing in its design as it is in its content, this bold volume 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 require prudence ("Law 1: Never Outshine the Master"), some stealth ("Law 3: Conceal your Intentions"), and some the total absence of mercy ("Law 15: Crush your Enemy Totally"), but like it or not, all have applications in real-life situations. 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.
