This review is from: The 48 Laws Of Power (A Joost Elffers Production) (Paperback)
This book is very insightful and uses many historical figures and events to illustrate the points made. Although some may find that certain rules are extreme, you should try and read between the lines as not everything written should be taken literally. Having said that the rules are all tried and tested ways of achieving power eg. Believing and acting like you belong with those of power will undoubtedly attract power to you,making you powerful. Being wary of friends is another good rule as well as avoiding negative people and 'victims', some may say the book is generally a cynical way of thinking but unfortunately it's a realistic and sensible way of looking at life if you want to gain power and avoid becoming part of the weak. I think incorporating these rules will make your life richer as they will strengthen you and make you aware of peoples psychology when interacting with them, remember that many people you meet in life will have their own agendas. Being equipped with such knowledge will give you a big advantage, the power will make your life better and give you the ability to make other peoples lives better too.
