Publisher's 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.

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.

Excellent Narration

You can't beat the price. The narration quality is excellent.

I enjoyed the Prince, I don't know if I'll ever be able to apply Machiavelli's tactics in the careers I'm looking at. It is however an excellent examination of the politics of the time and place.
