Read it if you're uber wealthy or not, or wanting to be
Because whoever you are you can still get a wealth of lessons from this book
It should be in the top 10 must reads

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills 3,000 years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. This bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other infamous strategists. The 48 Laws of Power will fascinate any listener interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.

Like a couple thousand years! I Lov books that are from experiences and research but the examples are just way too old and ad hoc for me to really accept all of the info
But the info and laws are spot on and true
I just couldn't get through it though sadly...
So instead I got the headline and info then fast forwarded so good for that alone.
I've worked for govt and corporate and although most reviews said his points were true, I've found human nature in competitive industries can be like that so good if you are in those industries

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets 16-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

For me the accents were quite bad. It's more of a kids book on audible but I'll try the written one and see if it's better.

South African-born Elon Musk is the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity. Musk wants to save our planet; he wants to send citizens into space, to form a colony on Mars; he wants to make money while doing these things; and he wants us all to know about it. He is the real-life inspiration for the Iron Man series of films starring Robert Downey, Jr. The personal tale of Musk's life comes with all the trappings one associates with a great, drama-filled story.

Into the mind of an inventor, IT geek, leader, business man. Although I still cannot understand going to Mars thing, it's an incredible book so if you want your brain to expand, just listen to it. I liked the author, he was pretty soft on Elon cause I'm sure there are a lot more crazy stories. I would have loved a better understanding of the different rockets and why the early rockets didn't sell. That's where a physical book would have been handy

I couldn't understand why people love my husband instantly. They feel calm and relaxed and he makes them feel at ease. I have changed and can get immediate results but using these tips makes it soooo much easier. And it's so simple. It works on many levels. What I didn't realise is that my face was always dead pan with no 'friend' signals. Now I do friend signals and it is the like switch
