Review this product
Top international reviews
it is a good read and the presentation was very readable, even the obligatory introduction of the analysis of the analysts who do the analysis and the analysis of that analysis.
The meat of the book is still very applicable today. Just replace "Prince" with elected Representative. "Advisor" with administrator/municipal staff. "Army" with Police/Emergency services.
My take is he presented his rulers, or government with 90% sound advice for the national level, and 10% lies to preserve his Florence, to have its independence.
Overall, I was happy with this version, mainly because it is also offered in e form and was relatively low cost!
