211 thought on “The Prince and Other Writings (BarnesNoble Classics Series)

  1. The Prince is not only timeless, but a great book to read for anyone interested in the combination between human psychology and state development I think the translator did a beautiful job on this particular edition, and I m happy I bought myself a collectible one, bound in leather and giving off the feel of an old book Reading it, I kept being surprised, as I always am, at how much humans have not changed for centuries and centuries on end How can we bring about such development and yet remain [...]


  2. Want to know the difference between the Renaissance and present day society If Machiavelli had written The Prince today, it would be called Ruling Principalities for Dummies In the fifteenth century, manuals for prospective rulers took the form of profound philosophical treatises In the twenty first century, they re bullet point lists bound in bright yellow covers with a cartoon on the front Part history and part philosophy, The Prince is a glimpse into the mind of a Renaissance thinker As much [...]


  3. A great political philosophy book, but it s a shame most people tend to miss the fact that the book is about how a leader should be pragmatic to ensure the best for the state, not how to be inconsiderate puppy kicker In fact, the oft quoted line It is better to be feared than loved is false the line, in full, is From this there arises a dispute whether it is better to be loved than feared, or the contrary The reply is that one should like to be both the one and the other, but as it is difficult [...]


  4. This has to be one of the most interesting books that I ve read for school It s one that I wouldn t have picked up on my own, but one I didn t hate.Also I started watchingThe Borgiasbecause of this book and I m addicted to it The show also helped me understand the book a little .


  5. Here I will give my opinion of this particular translation of Machiavelli s famous treatise, that being The Prince and Other Writings, translated by Wayne A Rebhorn If you re interested in a detailed explanation as to why the book itself will remain a timeless classic, see other reviews Reading this book was like having a good friend explain the text using simple language Mr Rebhorn starts off with a few sections to paint Machiavelli within the context of his time, and follows every chapter with [...]



  6. Great practical advice for a prince The background notes on his life helped me appreciate the book The excerpts from Discourses actually seemed better it was general, putting of his keen observations together The Prince offers exactly what its namesake needs If you find that the tumultuous 16th century political waves have washed you up onto the throne of a city or small province, then step one you are probably already dead step two work the ol noggin and keep everyone else s motivations in m [...]


  7. It depends on how you re approaching this title on how you d rate it Literary style, dark instructive, subject matter bleak but still relevant, historical lucid but amazing I read this as part of Brodsky s 83 books to read to have a decent conversation I can assure you that it had improved my political knowledge, my historical understanding my literary depth.I was surprised by the number of people who commented whilst I was reading it, as though I d sold my soul to the devil Obviously its reputa [...]


  8. Sem escr pulos, em O Pr ncipe, Niccol Machiavelli analisa e exp e o comportamento que um governador deve adotar para subir ao poder e manter se no topo Bem sucedidos ou completamente arruinados, o escritor serve se de v rios exemplos para fundamentar as suas conclus es homens que reconheceram a oportunidade gerada pela atribula o e se serviram dela para revelar as excecionais mentes e for as que os colocariam na Hist ria.As rela es s o de grande import ncia, o pr ncipe deve garantir que mant m p [...]


  9. I first read the Prince by Niccol Machiavelli after I was coming off of the Art of War by Sun Tzu, which was a book that was and still is critically acclaimed for its discussion of strategy and management I was however let down, as the Art of War, in my eyes, did not live up to the expectations that had come before it and as a result, I felt a little disheartened in what was labeled as a classic But upon learning of the Prince I thought that I would give the classics another chance and, in short [...]


  10. I am very glad this edition included some of the Discourses, because reading them I understood much clearly why Machiavelli in his own writings proves how democracies are inherently better than princedoms, and that is because being a Machiavellian Prince is inherently impossible One would have to embody too many opposing traits to successfully lead large groups of people that require different methods in attitude and enforcement, which leads to the necessity of others in the government, not jus [...]


  11. Maybe I m an ignorant to have not known who Machiavelli was before reading this book It was pure coincidence that I stumbled upon this book at the book store and found the edition quite interesting so I purchased it The fact that it was actually non fiction, to me, is another reason why I subconsciously carried it to the till Though many people have criticised how Machiavelli wrote this book for the sake of an important figure, namely a prince in power during his time, I don t see how it could h [...]


  12. The book that provided rehab for my politics addiction I now watch each election with a cynical eye as people extol the virtues of different candidates with conviction and idealism I know that these people have never read The Prince and if they did, failed to grasp its primary message After reading this book I am even proud of the fact that I have never voted for a presidential candidate from either of the two major partiesd I have voted in every presidential election since 1984.Politics and go [...]


  13. I bought this pretty edition of The Prince and Other Writings because Robert Greene had quoted Machiavelli so often in his book The 48 Laws of Power I thought that Machiavelli wrote this book for himself and general knowledge, but it turns out that he had written this for a specific person already in power Therefore, we are bombarded with waves of the names of countries, dukes, kings, sovereigns, territories, and regions, of that era without explanations The language is really rigid and formal i [...]


  14. Almost like reading the play book for modern politicians, Machiavelli s how to has been used for generations by Princes struggling to grasp or maintain their position The editor makes the argument that Machiavelli wasn t proposing that the ends justify the means but all of his suggestions are means by which to maintain control He frowns at times when suggesting that being dishonorable, cruel or dishonest is sometimes necessary, and then claims with a shrug that it must be done Feigning religion [...]


  15. I m actually going to change my star rating of this book, but my previous review said that I really did not like it Looking back, it wasn t really that terrible, but reads like a textbook A really old textbook Don t go into it expecting a page turning adventure even though I don t know why you would And, going through AP Government, I realize how relevant Machiavelli was during his time, and that relevance lasts to the modern world.


  16. Excellent for seeing how world leaders and governments act or might in general.Shows the hard line and darker side of human social politico structure.



  17. Reading this for the first time in my early 40s, I was struck not by the tone of selfish machinations that it has the reputation for, but rather for the simple common sense that most the chapters deal with Two of the most pernicious social mandates are that 1 people are good, and 2 one must be selfless The first is a lie, and the second is a delusion People are and always will be self interested, and the first duties of a self interested person read, someone who is actually taking care and respo [...]


  18. If cynicism is merely a heightened sense of reality, then call Machiavelli cynical Written as an advice book for a wise prince, his would be patron, Lorenzo de Medici soon to be duke of Urbino , in the early 16th century The Prince is for me most of all a study in human nature for nearly all of Machiavelli s chapters on holding onto power and governing wisely turn on points of character where failures of intellect, will, or personality doom princes of antiquity as well as those of the 14th and 1 [...]


  19. I really advice you to have a little background about Italy politics in the 15 16 century, precisely about Lorenzo de Medici and the government of the republic Niccol Machiavelli talks about them in a way that is a fact everyone knows so having a little knowledge about those facts will help you This book talks all about politics and how a prince supposed to be if he wants to be a good ruler he also mentioned what a prince should avoid The little turn off of this book is the redundancy of the qua [...]


  20. It s always difficult to rate centuries old works, especially when they have to be translated on top of their age For me, I believe the translation was the most hindering part of reading this treatise, because it made the flow poor and the sentences run on and clumsy, which resulted in loss of understanding the translator even notes here and there when certain Italian words or phrases don t have an exact English meaning If you re really wanting to read The Prince, then I would recommend finding [...]


  21. As Machiavelli is one of those writers people think they know, it is good to read them for yourself This beautiful volume offers a sampling of Machiavelli s work offered in good translation.My copy was a gift through First Reads.


  22. This is a great book in a horrible translation An endless stream of long and convoluted sentences I recommend the translation by James B Atkinson, it was a revelation, and allowed me to finish this book book show 2



  23. This was a very interesting read I highly enjoyed reading The Prince I think it is interesting that even things from way back then still can have meaning now.



  24. This book was of a Machiavelli reader than a work in its own right It was made up of about three or four different works by him depending on your definition of the word work so I feel like giving one rating for the entire book is insufficient As such, I ll treat this as the amalgamation of works that it is and provide separate ratings for each part.The Prince I really enjoyed this one a lot though having Sparknotes handy for reviewing each chapter was an enormous boon It is a lot complex than [...]


  25. Part political science and part history, The Prince is basically an instructional guide for a new prince to follow in order to most effectively lead and hold onto his power While this book is often credited with giving us the phrase the ends justify the means , that is not what Machiavelli is trying to express I think this explanation from the Introduction by Wayne Rebhorn is helpful In keeping with his preference for an effectual truth that bears fruit in the real world, Machiavelli stresses th [...]


  26. Men have less hesitation about offending one who makes himself loved than one who makes himself feared, for love is held together by a chain of obligation which, because men are sadly wicked, is broken at every opportunity to serve their self interest, but fear is maintained by a dread of punishment which never abandons you So says Niccol Machiavelli in The Prince, his most famous opus This political treatise was written in 1532 to Lorenzo de Medici, the then ruler of the Florentine Republic, as [...]
