Summary

The Prince is considered the all-time best book on political strategy. It has of late become a much-referred-to book for all competitive situations. Machiavelli's name is associated closely with his philosophy, as he well deserves. His other works are worth reading or hearing, as well, especially his Art of War and Belfagor: The Devil Who Took a Wife.

masterpiece read too fast

I like to enjoy my audiobooks while I am carrying some easy task, as preparing dinner. With this audiobook you must stop and actually concentrate on the reading because the reader is going so fast that your brain doesn't have the time to visualise the story.
I wish I could slow it down

Historically interesting but requires Context

The author makes many quite interesting points, but to understand the examples requires a lot of knowledge of the historical context. For someone not very well versed in the history and politics of sixteenth century Europe it is a challenge to understand the examples cited. The narration is good despite a few mispronunciations. While reading this book, one sees the continuing influence of this work on contemporary American politics. For people who just want a taste of The Prince, there are a few other selections that discuss the ideas without the need for deep historical context.

One of the greatest books

Very well worth the listen. Can learn an awful lot in under 3 hours about statesmanship and power.
