Just Life| Art of War

How to crush your enemies. What an intriguing question? You can't believe how many of our library patrons ask for the book, Art of War

I checked the shelf but couldn't find a copy of the Art of War (maybe someday I'll read this book).

Another favorite of our patrons is the 48 laws of power by Robert Greene. 

So let's see what I can learn from the reference copy of the 48 laws of power. It had better be good. 

While browsing the book, I came across a few of these laws which caught my eyes:

  • Law #4: Always say less than necessary. (Well said)
  • Law #5: So much depends on your reputation. Guard it with your life.
  • Law #7: Get others to do the work for you, but always take the credit.       (I don't agree with this one)
  • Law# 13: When asking for help, appeal to people's self-interest never to their mercy or gratitude.
  • Law #15: Crush your enemy totally.
  • Law #17: Keep others in suspended terror: Cultivate an air of unpredictability.

There you have it. If you are interested in these types of books, head to your local library to check out up to 25 free books.

Signing off until next Monday- Panteha
