Review: The Laws of Power... and Discretion
A grand survey of who has thought what about the source and exercise of power. Author Greene and typographer/designer Elffers collaboration presents a feast for the eyes as well as the mind.
Nanocorpers exercise discretion, the analog of power, so this is a double-edged read. On the one hand, it is a defensive read of what you should know about how power can be used by others. From an offensive standpoint, it is interesting how "anti-power" can be engendered and applied to the same advantage as true power.
It's interesting to note that, at the time of its release, this book had a ranking in the "Top 500" for the US and in the "Top 800" for the UK in Amazon.com Sales Ranking lists. Somebody's reading this book and likely applying lessons learned from it around you daily. Put this book on your "Read it soon" list to level the playing field... and, perhaps, to gain an advantage of your own!
