"The Prince" is a political treatise by the Florentine public servant and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. Originally called De Principatibus (About Principalities), it was written in 1513, but not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death. The treatise is not representative of the work published during his lifetime, but it is the most remembered, and the work responsible for bringing "Machiavellian" into wide usage as a pejorative term. It has also been suggested by some critics that the piece is, in fact, a satire.
Interesting read but not really relavent any more. Enjoyed as. Historical reference liked his insight into other leaders and their efforts to rule.
Great book. If you didn't read it, you will have to do it right away. The purpose of the book is simple - to provoke you think differently And it is written In a magnificent way
One of Machiavelli’s most influential work. It was an excellent read, and I’ve recommended it to some of my friends as well.
I love books like this that provide historical examples to back its philosophical assertions. I recommend it to anyone who has interest in these subjects.
1 of my all time favourite books
Great book with a lot of historical events. The advice given upon abstraction is valuable for all ages of human evolution
Classic book, amazingly not at all dated
