20 Laws of Power

20 Laws of Power

So if you’re not already familiar with Robert Green’s popular book “The 48 Laws of Power” that was published in 1998, I’m going to suggest you read it… right now.

Like any popular book, it has its positive and negative criticisms, but I found it immensely interesting for a self-help book.

I felt some of the laws mentioned had some real merit so I decided to go ahead and share some of them to let you decide yourself.

All credit goes to Robert Greene for the laws.

I just included my 20 favorite ones so that if you want to read the book, you can still get surprised.
