Product details

Product description


Praise for The Laws of Human Nature:

"The writing is engaging and the ideas are fascinating... we could all use the insights Greene provides.... a hopeful book that advocates freedom and creativity." -- Quartz

"The lessons have profound implications. There's a chapter on reading body language that is absolutely profound; each "law" has stunningly vivid descriptions of an historical figure." -- Inc.

"The Laws of Human Nature provides some first-rate comprehensive and in-depth information about how to deal with our fellow human beings effectively. Greene's intense curiosity about the inner workings of humanity is contagious, as he invites us to join him as fellow sleuths on his investigation of why people, including ourselves, do what we do. He rightly (and frequently) reminds us that in order to understand others, we must first and foremost understand what makes ourselves tick." -- New York Journal of Books

"In this detailed and expansive guide, Greene (Mastery) seeks to ... transform the reader into a 'calmer and more strategic observer, ' immune to 'emotional drama.' Those are lofty promises, but even skeptics will become believers after diving into Greene's well-organized text. Overcoming the "law of irrationality," for instance, leads to the ability to "open your mind to what is really happening, as opposed to what you are feeling." Greene's thoughtful examination of self and society will, for the committed reader, deliver a refreshing and revitalizing perspective." -- Publishers Weekly

Praise for Robert Greene:

"Greene's specialty is analyzing the lives and philosophies of historical figures like Sun Tzu and Napoleon, and extracting from them tips on how to manipulate people and situations--a cutthroat worldview that has earned him a devoted following among a like-minded readership of rappers, drug dealers and corporate executives." --The New York Times

"Compelling." --Forbes

"Illuminating."--The Guardian

Praise for The 48 Laws of Power:

"Machiavelli has a new rival. And Sun Tzu had better watch his back. Greene . . . has put together a checklist of ambitious behavior. Just reading the table of contents is enough to stir a little corner-office lust."--New York magazine

"Beguiling . . . literate . . . fascinating. A wry primer for people who desperately want to be on top."--People

"An heir to Machiavelli's Prince . . . gentler souls will find this book frightening, those whose moral compass is oriented solely to power will have a perfect vade mecum." --Publishers Weekly

"Satisfyingly dense and . . . literary, with fantastic examples of genius power-game players. It's The Rules meets In Pursuit of Wow! with a degree in comparative literature."--Allure

About the Author
