i was curious to see why so many people claim that The Prince is their 'favorite book' (especially men) and i still am. I read the book. Painfully, forcefeeding myself this dry narrative. Yes Machiavelli is a brilliant politician, but this guide (that's what it is it's a guide) is directed towards a very specific niche - Renassaince politics. Why in the world would someone want to read this today i fail to understand.
So please inlighten me!
