Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

"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. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

Praise for The 48 Laws of Power:

“It’s the rules for suits . . . 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
 

“Beguiling . . . literate . . . fascinating. A wry primer for people who desperately want to be on top.”
People magazine
 

“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
 

“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

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.

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.

3 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ein Kunde am 26. Mai 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is one of the best books that I have ever read. Unfortunately it is also one that can easily be misunderstood or misused. First let me say what the book is. The book is a guide to amoral methods of gaining power. It gives 48 different "laws" to use to accomplish that. The 1st misunderstanding of the book is purely the fault of the authors. "Laws" is very misleading in this case. "Strategies" works much better, but isn't quite as marketable. Anyone who tries to follow all 48 laws simultaneously all the time will be sorely dissapointed. The book will not make you an expert power player. Yes, the book does contradict itself, but in real life different strategies are needed in different situations. It's still up to you which ones to use. This brings me to the next point. Yes, the book is a distillation of many great masters of power. And, as with any distillation, the end result is not as good. But the simple fact is that the great masters are fairly difficult and boring to take straight. The book is best used almost as a primer course. It makes reading the actual texts by Machiavelli and Sun Tzu much easier. Next, the book does not advocate the use of these ideas. It does not say "Here, everyone should do this." In fact, in expressly says that these laws are not right for everyone. Those who morals tell them not to act this way, shouldn't. The book is a study of strategies for gaining power which have worked for those in the past. The book also does not advocate any particular use for power. It does not say that one should gain power for its own sake, or that one should gain power to help others. It just says that if you want to have power, here are some ways to do it. It's up to you how to use the power.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
