Since the publication of his debut novel, "The 48 Laws of Power," American author Robert Greene has been called all of the following, and more:

  • evil
  • hip-hop's Machiavelli
  • a malevolent mastermind
  • author of a psychopath's bible

Robert Greene's fans include actor Will Smith and music mogul Jay-Z. Greene is first to admit that he is not a diplomat. He believes himself to be a realist who presents what he sees in the world at large, devoid of any attempt at sugar coating it.

This audiobook claims to offer "wisdom in a nutshell." It lists 48 commandment-sounding laws for people to follow if they want to achieve and maintain power over people in their domain. He contends that leaders such as Machiavelli, Queen Elizabeth and even Henry Kissinger have used these laws to dominate and subjugate.

"The 48 Laws of Power Audiobook" presents and exposes the secret, dirty tricks of executives and those who hold the power in Hollywood as well as other companies and corporations. He shows how powerful people manipulate and squash people they consider below them on the ladders by which they define themselves. He goes so far as to call many capitalists "vultures." He also advocates methods tha t various types of leaders use, including President Obama, Jay-Z and rapper 50 Cent.

The book has gained a wide following and remains popular with celebrities, athletes, entrepreneurs musicians and others who agree that it's time to wake up and see things as they are, not as they appear to be.

Robert Greene is a contemporary American writer best known for his self-help books that make no bones about what it takes to succeed in this country. He attended U.C. Berkeley and the University of Wisconsin at Madison, earning a degree in classical studies. He currently lives in Los Angeles.

Greene is a popular speaker and best-selling author. His presentations in which he has teamed up with rapper 50 Cent have garnered wide approval.

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills three thousand years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. This bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun-Tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other infamous strategists. The 48 Laws of Power will fascinate any reader interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.
