Praise for The 48 Laws of Power:
“It’s the rules for suits . . . Machiavelli has a new rival. And Sun Tzu had better watch his back. Greene . . . has put together a checklist of ambitious behavior. Just reading the table of contents is enough to stir a little corner-office lust.”—New York magazine
“Beguiling . . . literate . . . fascinating. A wry primer for people who desperately want to be on top.”—People magazine
“An heir to Machiavelli’s Prince
. . . gentler souls will find this book frightening, those whose moral compass is oriented solely to power will have a perfect vade mecum.”
“Satisfyingly dense and . . . literary, with fantastic examples of genius power-game players. It’s The Rules
meets In Pursuit of Wow!
with a degree in comparative literature.”
