Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills 3,000 years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. This bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other infamous strategists. The 48 Laws of Power will fascinate any listener interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.

This is the kind of book that you start reading, and put down for a few days (or weeks), at least that is my case. The audio version of it was the same thing for me. Nevertheless, the 'Laws' described by the author show detailed research and well harvested content. The message is passed on clearly, and leaves you to think. That is the reason for which it took me long to read/listen to this book; it is very dense, but full of wisdom.

The occasion was a big birthday. And it inspired two close friends to get together in Dharamsala for a talk about something very important to them. The friends were His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The subject was joy. Both winners of the Nobel Prize, both great spiritual masters and moral leaders of our time, they are also known for being among the most infectiously happy people on the planet.

This book has a beautiful story to tell about the encounter of Archbishop Tutu and the Dalai Lama. It is a book containing two great philosophies of living told from an insider, and outsider point of view. Recommended for everybody going through a hard time, or just looking for further enlightenment along the way. This book will make you rethink about the way you live, despite you thinking you have already figured everything out. But, that's up to you to find out, I was just giving my perspective.

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

It can definitely be said that the author has some very interesting points to make about society nowadays. He addresses some fundamental issues present in the consumerist societies, which lead to profound unhappiness.

This book holds impecable advice and council on matters of suffering, and how it is all related to perspective. Of course, all from the authors stand point. Yet, he does an amazing job in explaining himself.

Watch out, though. He does not give a f*ck about your thoughts in his writing. So, be neutral and open, if you’re looking to grow, otherwise, don’t read this. It might be a “waste of your time”

This book beautifully depicts the two aspects of the human spirit, soul, consciousness, or whatever it is that you wish to call it. It is a beautiful work that allows one to connect oneself fully with one’s mistakes. It’s a work that makes us closer to God, the gods, the Universe, or simply your higher self. This book to me was a blessing. I hope others find it as so.
