Note: This is a summary and not the original book.
Amoral, ruthless, devious, and pragmatic, The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene is a self-help book offering crucial advice to anyone interested in gaining, maintaining, or defending against power.
The feeling of having no power over people or events is usually unbearable - when we feel helpless, we feel miserable. We all want power, no matter who we are, what goals we have, or where we come from. It is dangerous, however, to seem too power hungry, or to seek power in a clear, obvious manner. If you want to succeed in this game, you must remain subtle. Appear fair and trustworthy on the outside, but be cunning and pragmatic on the inside.
Men of power master the art of social interactions and cultivate an appearance that earns them respect and eliminates any kind of suspicion. They know how to adapt to any kind of circumstances. They have complete control over their emotions. They practice misdirection, secrecy, and selective honesty to manipulate and gain a tactical advantage. They set clear goals and do all it takes to achieve them. And after listening to this audiobook, you will not only be able to do the same when the situation requires it, but you'll also be able to identify and defend against those who use such tricks.
This summary highlights the key ideas and captures the most important lessons found in the original book. Unessential information has been removed to save the listener time.
