I have read only two chapter as of now , but i got to know that how our emotions driven our life in subconsciously stage. How much showed our rationality but after all we are bound with emotions whether you like it not but it true. I recommend to buy this book. It English quite tricky to understand for beginner and intermediate level books lover.
Received it in the form of a kindle version which I pre ordered it 3 days back. Jumping straight... The book commences with the typical greene style of a historian quote that further precedes with a plethora of historian figures and their smorgasbord of human nature that got agglutinated into laws and what each of their behavior Stands for and where they emerge from. The book consists neatly labeled 15 chapters. From confirmation bias, Social Conformity to the ultimate reality ie DEATH Also toxic friends, Success delusion and not to mention nonverbal communication. Greene with his exceptionally good way of exploring the mentioned topics covers all the stats while linking each with historical evidence and how they still thrive in today's social media driven world. The reason why I gave the book four stars is because of the repetition that I think Greene did with his laws which I reckon I already read in his previous books. However as I'm still reading the book and the conclusion is yet to be done. I may shall edit the stars rates and increase decrease the same according to the overall lessons of the book.
If your considering purchasing the book because you wanna dwell in the psychology of human nature and want to explore the field then this book is the ultimate best it covers each topic well under the perfect examination and explanation of each human behavior and then further expounds how your can scrutinize the very behavior in ourselves and others for the betterment of our overall social world.
Robert Greene's latest work is ruthless pragmatic and certainly not what the mainstream society would want you to know.
I am giving one star less just because of the length of this book, it is another classic by Robert Greene with amazing examples. this book would have been much much better if it were hundred pages less.
