The Prince

I have no idea and know exactly what to expect, when starting this classic book . As it turns out, the book is very accessible. Machiavelli turns out to have a very pragmatic, and practical approach to governing. One of the most important recommendations he has, is that a governing prince should keep his subjects happy.
