Snippiest review line ever, re. Robert Greene’s The 48 Laws of Power:
Despite some sound advice, this book is aimed not at those who (like Socrates) share the power of reason with the gods, but at those who (like Ulysses) share it with the foxes. — John S. Ryan
Saw the book (and laws) referenced on an e-list I’m on, but haven’t read it. Have you? How did you find it?
Also check out some older materials from an ethics and leadership course at Purdue.
