Machiavelli

Hungry For a Little Power?

Of course you are: and you're in luck. In his Big Think interview this week, power and strategy expert Robert Greene ("The 48 Laws of Power," "The 50th Law") shares coolheaded, shrewd advice on all of life's little power games, from the art of seduction to the delicate dance of asking for a raise in the recession.

Like a kindler, gentler Machiavelli, Greene also assesses those already at the top of the power heap—Obama and the Democrats—explaining how they got there and what they must do now to keep from ceding power. Like a detached caddie, he even analyzes the fall from grace of another famous, powerful man—Tiger Woods—and predicts whether his life will ever fully get its swing back.
