Kurzbeschreibung

The Handbook for Leaders

The Prince is often regarded as the first true leadership book. It shocked contemporary readers with its ruthless call for fearless and effective action. With simple prose and straightforward logic, Machiavelli's guide still has the power to surprise and inform anyone hoping to make their way in the world.

This keepsake edition includes an introduction by Tom Butler-Bowdon, drawing out lessons for managers and business leaders, and showing how The Prince remains vital reading for anyone in the realm of business or politics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Most Readable Edition of The Prince 1. September 2010
Von Donald Robertson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This new edition of The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli, part of the Capstone Original Classic series, is beautifully presented as befits a work of this stature and importance. The pleasing cover design and layout make it an excellent gift. However, Tom Butler-Bowdon's lucid and engaging introduction, to a work he rightly describes as "timeless", is also worth possessing. He provides an excellent and very readable introduction to Machiavelli and his historical context and a laudable survey of his principal ideas. This fine essay is accompanied by a concise bullet-point summary of The Prince's main points, a timeline of the author's life, and details of his other works. Tom helps to set the record straight: Machiavelli was a political pragmatist not a monster. He condemns wanton vice and cruelty and says instead: "It is essential, therefore, for a Prince who desires to maintain his position, to have learned how to be other than good, and to use or not use his goodness as necessity requires." Sometimes force is necessary for the benefit of the state, according to this view, and difficult decisions lie ahead of any new ruler. Apart from being a classical work of political philosophy, The Prince arguably has something to offer the modern reader as a guide to life, in much the same way as Sun Tzu's The Art of War. It paints a picture of the ideal ruler as someone who faces adversity with a tough-minded realism but does so, ultimately, with noble aims. I highly recommend this edition of the "original classic" not only to those with an interest in politics and ethics, therefore, but to those seeking an alternative to the more saccharine forms of contemporary self-help.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent version of the classic political treatese 28. Dezember 2012
Von Xenophon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Bought this for my 13 year old son doing a book report on politics, when all his peers were reading books written in the last twenty years by all the political rogues and "players" of our time. I was a little concered that Machiavelli might be a little over my son's head, but it reads well after getting used to the cadance of the author. The book arrived with a small dent in the cover. The dust jacket is too small and fragile, but it is more of a wrapper than a dust jacket, so no points off for that issue. This book has a wonderful introduction making the 15th century dialog and 1910 English translation by Ninian Hill Thomson much easier to understand. The typeface is a clean san-sarif of some type, with good white space on the 5"x8" pages.

5.0 von 5 Sternen He tells the truth 28. April 2013
Von laura - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book and its author are so misunderstood. I guess the truth hurts when it comes to human nature! What this book does so well is prepares one for how people behave and think and why, even almost six hundred years ago. Politics and banking and national security are all areas that benefit from his sage advice. And business people.
5.0 von 5 Sternen As advertised 19. August 2014

This was a purchase for an AP Euro class my daughter was taking. She wasn't crazy about the book but that doesn't reflect on this particular version. She just didn't enjoy reading Machiavelli. So if you find yourself in the position in which you have no choice but to read The Prince, then this is as good as any. However, I was told it didn't hold a candle to divergent but she 15 and I guess that's to be expected.
