The lessons of history are your tools to use today. There are many forms of power and it is your responsibility to understand them, as to not fall victim to abuse or manipulation of power. When I was done, I felt like I now acquired 48 shields. The insights from this book are practical and will aid you in your freedom to grow. You will be more aware to not just judge people by their intentions, but more objectively from the decisions they make. The 48 Laws of Power is a dense read, but if you can't get through it all you can skim through to find what can help you for your current situation.

Motivations to Read

I've never been a real aggressive person. So when I think of power, I more so associate it with resilience and freedom. An early concern of mine was about some of the ethics towards the focus on knowledge of more aggressive and manipulative forms of power. But then, I remembered a quote from Uncle Ben of Spiderman, "With great power comes great responsibility".

3 Reasons to Read

  • Learn from the past.
  • Understand how power is used, so you can be aware and defend yourself when used against you.
  • You want to use the laws of power to advance in life.
