Description du livre The 48 Laws of Power (2022):

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature.

In the book that 
People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum.
Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, 
The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.


I've started reading Robert Greene's books backwards, with The 50th Law. Having read other comments on Amazon US I knew this book, Power, would not be like The 50th Law.
Interesting book full of examples throughout history of the results of the observance and transgression of different power techniques.
I'm not that keen on history, I felt there was a bit too much of it in this book. Very hard to see how most of these techniques can be used daily unless you are working, have a business or wish to get ahead within a group of people, where it will pay to observe and make use of group dynamics. If so, I think it could be useful to you.
For me, The 50th Law is a far superior read.
