I read this book some time ago and must admit to being too lazy to write a positive review. I was motivated to write now because while writing a very critical review of another book of this genre (a truly awful example) I noticed that one of the other reviewers said "I bought this entirely on a whim and I wish I had taken a little more time to research my choice"; if you are researching your choice this is the one to go for.
Questions like; how must a Prince rule most effectively, but also morally? Why are magic (or the belief in such), important in any World? What is Destiny? Do we have a free will, and what does that mean when we also have religion? All the answers are out there - or inside ourselves. But riddles have always fascinated us. So it is with "A Song of Ice and Fire".
It was well worth the price, taking philosophers like Machiavelli, Hobbes and Aristotle and explaining their work using a Game of Thrones as an analogy, making it accessible to everyone.
Well written, insightful and engaging, I recommend this book highly.
