Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than it seems This book may seem like it is telling people to manipulate others and be scheming in order to get what you want; however, one must recall the time period and context of which Machiavelli wrote this book. This is a good book on strategy, but I would not advise all its principles to be followed in today's time. This book's wisdom was more relevant to those whom Machiavelli was writing for at his time. However, this book is widely discussed in political philosophy, and in that regard, it is good to have some knowledge on this book, which is why I recommend reading it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Read this book in university and returned to it recently. Outstanding is an understatement. IF you enjoy political theory, and renaissance Italy, this book is for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One of a kind read Read this for an Italian course I'm taking, it was a slow read for me(despite it's very short length). I'm not too into politics but I did appreciate Machiavelli's cynicism and his desire for a united Italy. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless People don't seem to change. The Prince has tremendous advice that is still just as valid in today's world as it was during the renaissance in Italy. He goes into the next level of dealing with not only people, but incredibly powerful people. People who, if they didn't like what you had to say or didn't do what they wanted, could have you killed. It's a thought provoking read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Points to Ponder, even today I did not know that this was more philosophy and non-fiction than a fictional portrait of a "prince" from the 16th century. However, Machiavelli's musing are both accurate (even for the 21st century) and interesting as he uses examples from his own time and involves real life characters such as Pope Alexander VI and the King of France, Charles VIII. There is also the fascinating tale about a 14th century "prince" who embodies most of the author's theories and ideas. At first it may not seem relevant, but it touches on some very important points if you really want to be a great leader.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant A brilliant view of politics, past, present and future. Political Satire at its purest, this was written for the Medici Princes, and it showed...apparently they did not appreciate his point of view, because he was killed for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realism Finally, a realistic view of the true politics and the true nature of man.
