Good Insight Into the Minds of the Time
I read that he wrote this as a 'resume' to get a job with a Prince (he didn't get the job - too much 'thinking' I would imagine).
Not only is there the famous advice on how to survive in a nightmarish era of utter brutal ignorance and cluelessness, but there is a lot of fascinating history here for the modern reader.
