From the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power comes the definitive new book on decoding the behavior of the people around youRobert Greene is a master guide for millions of readers, distilling ancient wisdom and philosophy into essential texts for seekers of power, understanding and mastery. Now he turns to the most important subject of all - understanding people's drives and motivations, even when they are unconscious of them themselves.We are social animals. Our very lives depend on our relationships with people. Knowing why people do what they do is the most important tool we can possess, without which our other talents can only take us so far. Drawing from the ideas and examples of Pericles, Queen Elizabeth I, Martin Luther King Jr, and many others, Greene teaches us how to detach ourselves from our own emotions and master self-control, how to develop the empathy that leads to insight, how to look behind people's masks, and how to resist conformity to develop your singular sense of purpose. Whether at work, in relationships, or in shaping the world around you, The Laws of Human Nature offers brilliant tactics for success, self-improvement, and self-defense.

The author researched this subject well, and presented the laws of human nature with stories of historical and modern figures to illustrate the workings of each law. Each law is clearly explained helping readers to practice each law to ones advantage as well as what telltales to look for in others words, body language and behaviors to decipher such that one can more effective connections and take precautions to fall prey to others deceits. He also encourage readers to exercise the same with oneself.
It is a good read as well as a reference. If one make a study and keep hone skills, one can become a master of oneself, have great relationship with others while honing emotional intelligence to succeed.

Another book based on Machiavellian principles. It is similar to 48 laws of power but now is less concerned with the need to be an alpha, instead this book delves into why we want these things and puts an emphasis on self-improvement, psychological self defense, and success. I rate this book 5/5 for an interactive guide on the motives and skills one should build up to become a better person. I recommend this book to those who are interested in understanding human desires and why we have them. Anyone with an interest in the department of psychology will find this a good read. @selfhelpguru of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
