Greene (Mastery; The 48 Laws of Power) draws from the wisdom of ancient philosophers, respected psychologists, and eminent writers to provide insight into all aspects of human behavior and their root causes. These qualities are organized into "laws," including the law of compulsive behavior, the law of self-sabotage, and the law of grandiosity. Greene defines, interprets, and suggests ways to deal with each trait, concluding that through possessing the knowledge of these concepts we can stand apart from draining emotional drama, be better judges of character, outthink toxic types, rid ourselves of negative patterns, and enjoy more satisfyingbonds.
VERDICT While hefty in size, this readable and relevant tome should have wide appeal.
