“What unites Machiavelli's personal and political sides is his desire that one's beliefs reflect life as it is actually lived rather than as we think it should be lived.” New York Times

“Few books have attracted such an influential readership as The Prince. Catherine de Medici and the Emperor Charles V professed their admiration for it. Louis XIV described it as his "favourite nightcap" and a copy was found in Napoleon's coach at Waterloo. Bismarck and Napoleon III swore by it and, more recently, Hitler kept a copy by his bedside, where it was reportedly a constant inspiration.” Daily Telegraph

THE PRINCE is one of the greatest works of strategy and philosophy ever written. Machiavelli, an adviser to the powerful families of his time, explains how to seize and keep power. THE PRINCE still inspires controversy and discussion nearly 500 years after it was published. Read it on this specially formatted and illustrated edition for your kindle and find out these timeless secrets for yourself.

"My view is that it is desirable to be both loved and feared; but it is difficult to achieve both and, if one of them has to be lacking, it is much safer to be feared than loved."

"The promise given was a necessity of the past; the word broken is a necessity of the present."

"Never attempt to win by force what can be won by deception."
