Aus der

Dieser Titel ist in englischer Sprache.
"Das Spiel der Macht zu erlernen, erfordert eine gewisse Art, die Welt zu betrachten, eine Verlagerung der Perspektive", schreibt Robert Greene. Die Beherrschung der eigenen Gefühle und die Kunst der Täuschung sind, so fährt er fort, absolut erforderlich. Die 48 Gesetze, die in diesem Buch beschrieben werden, "haben eine einfache Prämisse: Gewisse Handlungen verstärken unsere Macht [...] während andere sie verringern und uns sogar ruinieren können."

Die Gesetzte beruhen auf den Prinzipien der großen Intriganten (und Lehrern der Intrige) im Laufe der Geschichte, von Sun Tzu bis Talleyrand, von Casanova bis zum Schwindler Yellow Kid Weil. In ihrer amoralischen Einfachheit sind sie geradeheraus: "Lassen Sie andere die Arbeit für Sie tun, aber nehmen Sie das Verdienst dafür in Anspruch" oder "Finden Sie heraus, was des anderen Daumenschraube ist." Jedes Kapitel liefert Beispiele von den Konsequenzen der Einhaltung bzw. Mißachtung des jeweiligen Gesetzes. Das wird ergänzt mit "Schlüsseln zur Macht", potentiellen "Umkehrungen" (wo die Umkehrung des Gesetzes ebenfalls nützlich sein kann) und einem einzelnen Absatz, der geschickt als Metapher angelegt ist (wie oben erwähnte Daumenschraube).

Die Ränder sind voll mit Zitaten, die das beschriebene Thema veranschaulichen. Denjenigen, die die Kunst, den anderen immer um eine Nasenlänge voraus zu sein, praktizieren, wird hiermit ein neues, umfassendes Handbuch geboten, das so aktuell wie zeitlos ist.

"Learning the game of power requires a certain way of looking at the world, a shifting of perspective," writes Robert Greene. Mastery of one's emotions, and the arts of deception and indirection are, he goes on to assert, essential. The 48 laws outlined in this book "have a simple premise: certain actions always increase one's power ... while others decrease it and even ruin us."

The laws cull their principles from many great schemers--and scheming instructors-- throughout history, from Sun-Tzu to Talleyrand; from Casanova to con man Yellow Kid Weil. They are straightforward in their amoral simplicity: "Get others to do the work for you, but always take the credit," or: "Discover each man's thumbscrew." Each chapter provides examples of the consequences of observance or transgression of the law, along with "keys to power," potential "reversals" (where the converse of the law might also be useful), and a single paragraph cleverly laid out to suggest an image (such as the aforementioned thumbscrew); the margins are filled with illustrative quotations. Practitioners of one-upmanship have been given a new, comprehensive training manual, as up-to-date as it is timeless.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The soul you sell may be your own! Lessons learned. 14. April 2000
Von V. Serrie
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The book is well written, engaging in concept, and it gets its points across well. It is also very useful and practical. It is, of course, also quite evil. The very essense of it in fact. Please understand that I don't usually speak in such black and white terms, or religious terms, but this book struck me as that - pure evil. Despite it's title, however, it is not really about true power. True power is about leadership, vision, and conviction. This is merely about the immoral and unethical tricks, manipulations and deceptions that some people use to work themselves into positions of influence and authority over others. Since these people and their tactics certainly exist however, this book is an excellent guide to tell you exactly what to look for in others and so help you plan your defenses. Some of the laws are common sense and relatively harmless (like law 1 - never outshine the master, or another: do not show your weaknesses, keep your mystery) but some are ruthless, unethical, immoral and I could never follow them (like - having others do your work for you and then taking credit for their work, or: targeting weaker people as demonstrations for your power by setting them up for public attack, etc.) Even if you do not plan to use the techniques yourself, it is good to know about them. It is useful to be able to form an effective defense against them for when they do come up in life. Add to this the fact that the book is entertaining to read, and you have a worthwhile purchase. Like looking at the opposite team's playbook.
More knowledge is good I think. I feel somewhat wiser for having read it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Naughty Book on getting ahead in life 15. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a naughty book. It teaches the would-be proponent of the power game, to be mean and nasty, and how to get ahead in life. To this end, the book sets out The 48 Laws of Power.
The 48 Laws of Power is highly common-sensical, realistic and practical. Notwithstanding the meanness of the 48 Laws, I found this book to be a valuable guide to getting on in life. Politics and human relations are inevitable matters which we have to deal with in life. The sooner one learns and masters the 48 Laws, the better.
Personally, I would not advocate actively practising the 48 Laws. But knowing what these 48 Laws are, is imperative. They more one is aware of these Laws, the better one is able to identify life's dangers and avoid or defend oneself from potential troubles.
I like how each chapter focuses on a specific Law of Power. The chapters follow a common systematic and organised template which makes reading easy. The chapters are packed with loads of lessons and historic examples, illustrating how each Law works. Beside learning the Laws of Power, I also learnt a great deal of history from this book. And if you are a student of Sun-Tzu, Machiavelli or Clausewitz, you will love this book.
When I first read this book back in November 1998, I had the opportunity to reflect on and observe the workings of The 48 Laws of Power. Dr Mahathir, Prime Minister of Malaysia had just then sacked his Deputy the charismatic Anwar Ibrahim. Interestingly, a copy of Asiaweek in or about that time showed a picture of Dr Mahathir, in his office, shaking hands with his new Deputy, Badawi - in the foreground of the picture, on Dr Mahathir's desk, a copy of The 48 Laws of Power could be found.

After 44 years in the corp world of DuPont, General Electric, Black & Decker, Sunbeam, and Steelcase, I relate to all of the laws one way or another.
Many of my mistakes in my career could have been avoided if I had this book at my desk side.
I was a naive, honest, ethical engineer, manager, V.P., and President.......and was blind sided by my inability to see the manipulations, dishonesty, political, manipulations of my trusted leaders. My wisdom came too late.
Business ethics be damned.........the game is winning and gaining power forgetting the customer, company, the employees and pleasing the shareholders and Wall Street above all to gain personal reputation and be hailed by Fortune, Forbes, Business Week, etc. feeding the ego trips of top management, taking credit for all that is good and shedding the blame on others when things go bad.
This should be preferred reading in the Business Schools.
A great job done by the Authors.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The first time I read this book it was indeed called The Prince and it was written by the original strongman of Florenzia: Machiavelli. This book is one of those recycling past political/military strategist books that appears every few years or now ever since Michael Douglas told Charlie Sheen to read The Art of War in Wall Street. In short, you're better reading the original versions of hardball-politic books.
If Machiavelli himself is too rough for your tastes, try out "A child's guide to machiavelli" which, as a satire, is more effective and direct than this book.
At any rate, the authors have successfully waged their own Princely propaganda campaign as we've all seen ads for this book in the NY Times for the last few days!
The only argument against my denigration of this book is the assembly of examples regarding specific businessmen/women & occurrences. Hogwash I say. The reason The Prince stays in the western canon is because man has proved Machiavelli right time after time. Only the most dense reader needs these examples spelled out letter for read letter.
Kudos must be given to Elffers for his interesting design though.

Half of your mastery of power comes from what you do not do, what you do not allow yourself to get dragged into. &quote;
Markiert von 62 Kindle-Nutzern
The most important of these skills, and powers crucial foundation, is the ability to master your emotions. An emotional response to a situation is the single greatest barrier to power, a mistake that will cost you a lot more than any temporary satisfaction you might gain by expressing your feelings. Emotions cloud reason, and if you cannot see the situation clearly, you cannot prepare for and respond to it with any degree of control. &quote;
