The Concise Laws of Human Nature (Paperback)

Robert Greene

From the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power comes the concise edition of the definitive book on decoding the behaviour of the people around you

The concise edition of the 2019 WINNER OF THE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS BOOK AWARD

From the million-copy bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power

Robert 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 Concise Laws of Human Nature offers brilliant tactics for success, self-improvement, and self-defence.
