Overview

Amoral, merciless, ruthless, and above all, instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller combines three thousand years of the history of power into forty-eight clear and concise laws. Robert Green details the laws of power in the rawest sense, synthesizing the thoughts of Sun Tzu, Carl von Clausewitz and other great theorists and strategists. This is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.  Amoral, inmisericorde, despiadada y, sobre todo, muy instructiva, esta incisiva obra concentra tres mil años de historia del poder en cuarenta y ocho leyes claras y concisas. Robert Greene detalla las leyes del poder en su esencia más cruda, sintetizando el pensamiento de Maquiavelo, Sun Tzu, Carl von Clausewitz y otros grandes teóricos y estrategas. Algunas leyes sugieren la prudencia ("Ley n° 1: nunca le haga sombra a su amo"); otras, el sigilo ("Ley n° 3: disimule sus intenciones"); otras más, una total falta de piedad ("Ley n° 15: aplaste por completo a su enemigo"). 

Reviews

"Machiavelli has a new rival. And Sun Tzu had better watch his back. Greene . . . has put together a checklist of ambitious behavior. Just reading the table of contents is enough to stir a little corner-office lust."—New York magazine, on the English-language edition

"Beguiling . . . literate . . . fascinating. A wry primer for people who desperately want to be on top."—People magazine, on the English-language edition

"An heir to Machiavelli's Prince . . . gentler souls will find this book frightening, those whose moral compass is oriented solely to power will have a perfect vade mecum." —Publishers Weekly, on the English-language edition

"Satisfyingly dense and . . . literary, with fantastic examples of genius power-game players. It's The Rules meets In Pursuit of Wow! with a degree in comparative literature."—Allure, on the English-language edition
