The-48-Laws-of-PowerThe 48 Laws of Power
by Robert Greene

Amoral, cunning, ruthless and instructive, The 48 Laws of Power is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing or defending against ultimate control.

Three thousand years of the history of power have been distilled into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum.
Some laws teach the need for prudence, others teach the value of confidence, and many recommend absolute self-preservation. Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether the reader’s aim is conquest, self-defense or simply to understand the rules of the game.


The-Third-WaveThe Third Wave
by Steve Case

Steve Case — a pioneer who made the Internet part of everyday life — was on the leading edge of a revolution in 1985 when he co-founded AOL. In The Third Wave, he uses his insights garnered from nearly four decades of working as an innovator, investor, and businessman to argue the importance of entrepreneurship and to chart a path for future innovators.

The Third Wave explains the ways in which newly emerging technology companies will have to rethink their relationships with customers, with competitors and with governments; and offers advice for how entrepreneurs can make winning business decisions and strategies.
