Summary

The Prince, Machiavelli's 'little book', was written in 1513 and is dedicated to Lorenzo de' Medici. It remains a compelling and controversial treatise on politics, dispensing often cynical, sometimes brutal advice on gaining power and retaining it. Essential listening for our masters perhaps, but most certainly for those of us who would not be mastered. The text used here is the unabridged and classic translation by W. K. Marriott.

Easy access and well transposed by the narrator.

What made the experience of listening to The Prince the most enjoyable?

Knowing this is considered his most recognized work it was easy to see and appreciate his foundation and political leanings. A good introduction for those that want to go on to more in-depth investigation of his works and political strategies - with this on mind Great Courses offer great follow-up insight and courses for those interested in his work.

Well, at least I can say I've read it

I was hoping that this book, like the Art of War, would give me insights into how to deal with modern workplace politics or have some other applicable lessons. And, like the Art of War, I was disappointed.
