    I didn't know exactly what to expect, when starting this classic treatise. As it turns out, the book is very accessible. Machiavelli turns out to have a very pragmatic, and practical approach to governing. One of the most important recommendations he has, is that a governing prince sho...

    A young colleague of mine recently said ?management is easy?. I smiled enigmatically and considered buying him a copy of ?The Prince? but I fear it would be wasted. I am now on my third copy of this book which, alas, I can only read in English. The George Bull translation (as r...

    How to run things and hopefully remain popular but not give a monkey's if they hate you. How to instil enough fear in people that they at least show respect to your face. Plenty of good lessons here for a politician, but adaptable by anyone if you don't mind being thought evil by yo...

    That single statement boys and girls is the crux at the heart of the matter resting at the bottom-line of Niccolo Machiavelli?s world-changing classic on the defining use of realpolitik in governance and foreign policy. Despite popular perception, Machiavelli, whose name has often...

    In this book, Machiavelli makes his purpose clear: how to get power and keep it. No happiness. No warm and fuzzy pats on the back. Definitely no hugs. No words of encouragement. Definitely nothing about being nice. Being nice, in politics, in war, in struggles for power, often ...

    I'm weirdly pleased that The Prince lives up to its reputation: it is indeed Machiavellian. Here's his advice on conquering self-governing states (i.e. democracies): "The only way to hold on to such a state is to reduce it to rubble." Well then. I'd like to say that any guy whose la...

    This book is the perfect representation between the best and the worst of House Slytherin in the Harry Potter verse, and that is how I presented it to my class. I got an A on the paper, so it does make sense. ?Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are...

    Italy in the early 1500's was a sad, dispirited land of constant wars, deaths, destruction, political betrayals, schemes of conquest by greedy aristocrats, trying to enlarge their petty Italian states, invasion by ruthless, foreign troops, from France, Spain, the Swiss, rulers being ov...

    I think this was the first time that I read this book from cover to cover rather than dipping in and out of it, I feel that it's reputation is bleaker than it's bite, it seems no more cynical than observing to oneself, when an American political figure says something, that there is an ...

    This is no Little Prince, that's for sure. You must kill the fox, burn the rose, murder the businessman, if any of them tries to take control over your princedom. There is no time to be nice! There is only time to seem to be nice. At the end of the day, it is better to be feared than l...

    Libertine magazine issue 3 has a quote down the spine: it is the common good, and not private gain, that makes the cities great I like to quote this to friends and play the yes-no game at guessing who said it. Everyone is stunned that it was Machiavelli. In times when Machiave...

    Niccol Machiavelli considers that human desires and states of spirit are always the same. Thus he studies the past and seeks in history the explanations for the reality of his time. The history can predict future events and use the same old ways, or in failing, that creates other for...

    'We can say that cruelty is used well... when it is employed once for all, and one's safety depends on it, and then it is not persisted in but as far as possible turned to the good of one's subjects.' The Prince is unlike anything I've read before. In many ways it feels like a truly...
