Review "[Machiavelli] can still engage our attention with remarkable immediacy, and this cannot be explained solely by the appeal of his ironic observations on human behaviour.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. The first 38 pages are a useful authors introduction, but it is the 16 pages of the Translators note that are of most benefit. Essentially this is a modern easy read that maintains, IMHO, one of the best attempted translations or modern renderings of a much misunderstood work.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The Prince is a perceptive, profound and deeply honest representation of the human conditions -- good and bad.
The observations, although carried out a few centuries ago, are timeless and somewhat disconcerting. Worth every penny and more, aesthetically it is a very pretty book, and the content itself is a fascinating and insightful read.
Frequently bought together
It provides you with a clear insight into the realm of real politics and its brutality whilst simultaneously giving an interesting historical insight. Niccolo Machiavelli's book was written in the mid 16th century; this is a later translation from the 17th century converted into ebook format. There are a couple of issues with the format on the Kindle; some missing page breaks, and some odd sentence breaks. The ebook version also includes a couple of additional items written by Machiavelli later in his life.
The main book is a study of the concept of leadership, and particularly the application of politics within a nation or state.
It is based upon a very careful study of the leaders of the time, especially within Italy and from the classical period of Greece and Rome. Although written some years ago, most of the precepts can be seen to have been relevant throughout the intervening period and in many ways are still pertinent today. In fact some of the material could equally be applied within large organisations; examine the biographies of some of the most famous business leaders and entrepeneurs, and you will see many of the factors that enabled them to rise up being the same that Machiavelli identified as being desirable in a great leader.
It does perhaps portray a certain level of cynicism and certainly indicates the ruthlessness that is required to become a political figure; and it is this that has made the name of Machiavelli synonymous with political intrigue. In many ways, this book is to political governance, what Sun-Tzu's "Art of War" was to the concept of military leadership. As a scientific exponent of the political art Machiavelli may have had few followers; it is as a provocative rhetorician that he has had his real impact on history.
