Robert Greene is well respected, and his books are all held in high regards- and rightly so. Instead of rehashing what everyone else has said, I'll briefly explain why this book should be a cornerstone on which to base your life.
-This book will introduce you to the greatest Kings, Queens, Generals, Monks, Conmen, Magicians, Strategists, Seducers, scientists...the best the world has ever known. Should you find something to dig deeper into, you will already have a name to start your research with.
- This book is not written as an academic exercise. There is nothing theoretical about this book. What you read can be directly applied in life.
- These laws are timeless. Contrary to popular belief, the generations that come after us are no smarter than those who precede us.Technology, rules, governments, and societies as a whole may change, but people will remain inherently the same. To master this book is to be able to navigate through the masses and get to where you want to go in life.
- You will learn to have direction. If you have dreams and goals, this book will help you figure out the basics of reaching out for help, for contacting others, knowing who to trust, etc. Law 13 alone can change the course of a man's career- "When Asking for Help Appeal to People's Self-Interest, Never To Their Mercy or Gratitude."
Study the book. Memorize the Laws. Highlight, take notes, and read seriously-You owe it to yourself. If you want to be the best, make it to the top of whatever field you're in- you will need this book.
