There are books, just a few that are legendary and have changed the way the world sees itself, inspiring debate, dissent, or even war. Join us for one of those books, written by one of the world's greatest and most controversial thinkers, Machiavelli. Rejecting tradition and drawing on his own experiences, Machiavelli has created a disturbingly realistic and prophetic master plan for seizing and holding power, free of ordinary moral and ethical values and coldly logical. Published several years after his death, this provocative book ignited a debate that still rages today; an uncompromising picture of the true nature of political power and a call for fearless and effective action.

Niccolo Machiavelli was born on May 3, 1469 in Florence, Italy. He was a political philosopher, statesman, and court advisor. Starting out as a clerk, he quickly rose in the ranks because he understood balance of power issues involved in many of his diplomatic missions. His political pursuits quickly ended after he was imprisoned by the Medici family. He is best known for The Prince, his guide to power attainment and cutthroat leadership. He also wrote poetry and plays, including a comedy named Mandragola. He died on June 21, 1527 at the age of 58.
