The book covers several important themes. It features a summary of each chapter and a more detailed analysis of some key figures i.e. the de Medici family to who the work was dedicated, Cesare Borgia (the son of a pope) who is frequently featured in the text.

I think that the critical essays section could be improved.

The only issue I had was the delay in it arriving: I ordered it deliberately from the UK store so that it would arrive in several days, but instead it was dispatched from the US store and consequently took several weeks to arrive. It was in good condition and matched the product details.

For first time readers of The Prince 10 Jun. 2004
By Gabriel Cruz - Published on
Format: Paperback
Clearly, in my opinion, this book should be purchased along with 'The Prince' for first time readers of the book. One may think 'The Prince' is rather dull and boring, yet the CliffNotes will open a reader's eyes to never before seen comments on what makes 'The Prince' one of the greatest books (letters) ever written on leadership.

Read The Prince, Not Cliffs Notes 21 Dec. 2012
By Alex R. Rupert - Published on
Format: Paperback
Stacy Magendanz throws Machiavelli under the bus with this interpretation of The Prince. The summary's subjective stance is far worse than anything Machiavelli cooked up himself as it condemns free enterprise and personal ambition. What Stacy does get right, is the book's four distinct pathways to acquiring leadership, but goes onto suggest that Machiavelli believes all should be fused together into a hyper-idealized totalitarian despot. If this were the case, then all mega-corporations would be headed by bloodthirsty Adolf Hitler clones. Don't read anyone else's write-up about this book. Read The Prince (Dover Thrift Editions) for yourself and learn to separate the good from the bad.

Makes short work of a fairly complicated approach to dealing with political opponents. I'm sure that there are subtle differences between the original and the notes, but who really wants to go that deep into this subject? Not me ... sammy
