El cinismo oculto del arte de gobernar. El Principe de Maquiavelo es quiza la obra mas discutida, vituperada por unos y elogiada por otros, de toda la literatura política universal. Maquiavelo, temporalmente desterrado por sus patrones, escribio en dos meses este tratado, dirigido a Giuliano y Lorenzo de Medici, cuando el tio de estos, el Papa Leon X decidio crear un estado para que ellos lo gobernaran. Maquiavelo decidio dedicarles un tratado sobre el arte y los metodos para gobernar, y el resultado es una obra que es considerada cinica, aunque hay quienes afirman que es mas bien realista.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhasshan1 | 1/29/2014

    " A morbid look at how to gain and maintain power, be it political or having to gain some leverage in a relationship!! Greatly composed by the late author "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 1/10/2014

    " Root of much modern, philosophical, political doctrine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina Wright | 12/26/2013

    " It is better to be feared than loved "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken Ndirangu | 12/3/2013

    " Quite the argument for politics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 11/22/2013

    " More exceptional pre-coup reading. Flabbergasted that, whilst everyone raves about his political thought being five centuries ahead of its time, very few people mention how genuinely funny Machiavelli's dust dry wit is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Henry | 11/20/2013

    " The epitome of a timeless book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abbyarthur | 11/7/2013

    " You can't argue with his advice. Still holds true centuries later. But, it isn't that interesting to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 N | 9/29/2013

    " I don't know how I managed to avoid reading this book for so long, but I'm certainly glad to have remedied the situation. It's easy to read books like A World Lit Only By Fire (a fantastic examination of medieval gossip) and miss out on the vibrant source material. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriela Lastres | 7/28/2013

    " I really liked it! If you're judging then you probably haven't read it or at least haven't read it well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bashar A'sh | 5/30/2013

    " One of the best books I've ever read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicholas | 2/27/2013

    " To control them with shock & awe... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris Macnaughton | 1/8/2013

    " Do you want to lead? at work? in a game? at all? Read this. Seriously, I know it's antiquated but the ideas hold up. How to make pawns and influence people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Benedetti | 11/27/2012

    " Few good sections / observations ... But overall it was not my cup of tea "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 10/19/2012

    " Learn to use violence and fear to control humanity. A must read for all up and coming autocrats, tyrants, and neo-cons. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette | 9/29/2012

    " So satire or not, so glad that I didn 't grow up in Machiavellian times. Who should aspire to be a prince, pontiff, or king. Evil, helpless times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gilang Permana | 10/20/2010

    " Catatan dasar seorang negarawan dan juga menampilkan sosok Borgias disini, patut disimak deh banyak hal menarik tentang politik perang "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana | 8/23/2010

    " I didn't agree with most of Machiavelli's views, but I have to say it was very well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Y | 12/31/2009

    " I honestly hate how he thinks. Maquiavelo sees the people like animals, like possessions. However, his mind is just a reflection of the society he lived in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ray | 12/1/2009

    " Insight for becoming a great leader. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Willo Font | 6/6/2009

    " Enjoyed the first 50 pages . Then Ugh! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Raymond Hall | 9/1/2008

    " Despotism for dummies made me feel dirty "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Madeleine Cleary | 9/7/2007

    " I don't really agree with the opinions of Machiavelli on morality but it was still very illuminating! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jake Barrington | 1/1/2007

    " Good book, the old style of writing is difficult to comprehend (at least as a 9th grader). "
