About The 48 Laws of Power

The New York Times Bestseller

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, The 48 Laws of Power is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.

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.

Robert Greene's "The 48 Laws of Power" is a distillation of three thousand years of history into 48 laws that govern power among the human species. It includes the philosophies of Machiavelli, Carl von Clausewitz, Sun-tzu and other great strategists and thinkers throughout history. Greene's laws begin with Law 1, "Never outshine the master," and continues to Law 48, which instructs those seeking power to "Assume formlessness," meaning once a plan is visible, it is open to attack.
