    2. The author belonged to the government of Florence when it was powerful He learned that should and should not do a governor to stay in power It is a manual Most believe it is a description of Cesare Borgia To stay in power one not to be virtuous Rather unscrupulous Mandatory reading for those who aspire to rule or govern.

    4. The idea of reviewing this is than a little silly it s arguably the most influential non religious work of all time but I thought a few comments Stalin allegedly kept a copy on his nightstand Half of Shakespeare s villains Iago, Richard III, etc derive their character in whole or part from this text.Most of this book is extraordinarily controversial, even today, yet still fundamentally difficult to argue against there s a reason the Catholic Church kept it on the _Index Librorum Prohibitorum_ f [...]


    5. This particular edition is terrible I will change this rating if I discover differently A search for Caspuccio yields nothing and a search for Lucca yields one result I am not sure why it is so incomplete The W.K Marriot version doesn t seem to have these problems The Prince without Caspuccio I trusted that something called Classics would be ok My mistake.

    7. Amazing book I love this about literature and how it allows you to get into the heads of the writers, even though they re dead for half a thousand years The Prince places you in time with that period.Having said that, the book is a kind of wisdom for and observation of what makes a good leader It also opens a door into various historic events and leaders that may be an obscurity to so many of us Human cruelty was not invented in the 20th century and neither was deceit, murder, jealousy, ambition [...]


    8. A great thesis worth multiple readings This collection of essays and letters are one man s fascinating take on politics and war The only thing which takes away from the overall work are the appendices which try to spoon feed conclusions as opposed to providing context for the greater work.To be able to read and understand this book correctly, you must be prepared to spend some time understanding the politics and conflicts of the time That being said, it s the only way to do it and be able to gra [...]
