Empower Yourself with Robert Greene

The bestseller 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene is often considered as an evil piece of work, however, the evilness in the book is the reality of the world we are part of. This is how world works and 48 Laws of Power is an understanding, a concise one. Robert Greene certainly help us to improve our understanding of the world better. There’s no harm in that.

Reading this book will definitely increase one’s awareness as he will become more conscious to what and how is it going around. Some of the laws will inspire you as they did to me, towards empowerment of your own and some will help how not to lose that conscious mind in somebody else’s hand. Greene encourages an individual to be fluid in his plans and actions as actions are what matters and not the words.

Focus on the smaller internal changes that lay the groundwork for a much larger change in fortune.  It is the difference between grasping an illusion and emerging yourself in reality, and reality is what will liberate and transform you!- Robert Greene

As there are 48 laws, each law is described with historical examples that are well researched Greene make sure that at the end of each law, or chapter, his reader will develop the same clarity for the text as he written it with. From the start of the book I am fascinated by the Greene’s ideology about work which is indifferent from most of the world and his observation on uncertainty and how most of us loathe it.

The message from the book is the exact thing we know from our own experience, our own experiments in past and our own present but for one reason or the another we at times fail to focus on the reason behind it and develop a complete ignorance until we find ourselves in the same situation. The message from Robert Greene is simple but not easy and to follow I urge you to read this book. The book will consume your time but it will be time worth spent.

  1. Hi Aman, this is an engaging book. I read it about 10 years ago with a mixture of interest and fear, and thereafter kept it hidden because I didn’t want to introduce friends to evil or manipulative skills! But there are many useful lessons for those interested in human nature and the dynamics of power among people in various settings. I may just buy a copy of the book again as a friend has borrowed it since ’09. Thanks for this review.

  2. This sounds like a fascinating book and I do agree that actions are what count rather than words and that immersing yourself in reality rather than illusions is how you will make progress. I am a great fan of action and always come up with action plans for the women I mentor. Thanks for following my blog.
