    A timeless piece with messages that are as relevant today as they were when it was written 500 years ago. Society might change but people don't, so tomorrow's winners will be those who follow the rules within, either because they read them here or because they were inclined to through instinct.
  • A great book, then and now!

    This book should be on threading list for all who want to get head in life, not only business. It is by no means as dark, but has common sense at the heart of it. Read it, and bear in mind the context of the times it was written in. Enjoy!
  • Great method of living

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. Right from the start it was evident that what was true in the courts of medieval Florence, Venice, Milan and Papal Rome is equally true in the politics of today. Keeping promises only when expiedent to do so - Clegg and his promise on student loans - or the use of misdirections and untruths to retain power or influence are still very much in evidence today. Read this book to understand the likes of Blair, Obama and Cameron and why those who retain power are never really truly to be trusted, after all they often got there by employing the tactics in this book.
