Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature. In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum. Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

Learn how to apply the main ideas and principles from the original book in a quick, easy read! We live in a culture that highlights the importance of democratic values, of fitting into a group, of knowing how to cooperate with other people. We are constantly trained and prepared for peace, but we're not at all prepared for the perpetual war that we must fight in the real world. This war occurs not only on the military battlefield, but on multiple levels of society. In business, politics, sports, even the arts, we find ourselves facing ruthless opponents that are willing to do anything to gain an edge. More troubling, however, are the battles we face with those who claim to be on our side--those who seem to play the team game, who act friendly and agreeable, only to sabotage us behind the scenes, to use the group to secure their own selfish interests. On the surface everything seems peaceful and harmonious, but just below it, it is often every man and woman for themselves. Our culture may deny this reality, but we all know it and feel it in our daily lives. As equally important as "The 48 Laws of Power" and "The Art of Seduction", "The 33 Strategies of War" by Robert Greene is a comprehensive guide to human interaction which reveals how the most ingenious and effective principles of warfare can be applied to the battles and conflicts of everyday life. Each chapter is a strategy aimed at solving a particular problem that you will often encounter in your daily struggles. The strategies range from the basic strategies of classical warfare to the dirty and unconventional strategies of modern times, and can be applied to struggles of any kind: organized warfare, business campaigns, the politics of a group, or personal relationships. This summary highlights the key ideas and captures the most important lessons found in the original book. If you've already read the original, this summary will serve as a reminder of main ideas and key concepts. If you haven't, don't worry, here you will find every bit of practical information that you can apply. However, we do encourage you to purchase the original as well for a more comprehensive understanding of the subject. (Note: This summary is written and published by Millionaire Mindset Publishing.
