Though written around 1513, more than 500 years ago, Italian diplomat Niccolò Machiavelli's The Prince is still both widely listened to and very influential. Listeners turn to it for its direct advice on the question of how to attain - and retain - power. Machiavelli's answer, in brief: Use any means necessary to make sure the state survives. Given the changeable nature of politics, the strong ruler that Machiavelli describes may need to lie or cheat, deceive, and, if necessary, resort to acts of violence - all the while maintaining an image of goodness. With enough skill - along with luck and favorable circumstances - the prince will retain his power. Machiavelli's ideas continue to be used today by leaders both scrupulous and unscrupulous. Rightly or wrongly, his name remains a byword for political behavior that deals in realities rather than theories, making The Prince arguably one of the most influential books in the Western tradition. 1.

We all have egos. And they are holding us back. Ego is the enemy of growth. Ego is the enemy of mastery. Ego is the enemy of getting what you want and of keeping what you have. Ego is the enemy of relationships. Ego is the enemy of loyalty and support. Ego is the enemy of repeating and growing your success. Ego is different than confidence. Instead of helping us grow, it pushes us down. It repulses relationships, advantages, and opportunities. And, like a bee to honey, it attracts errors, mistakes, pitfalls, embarrassment, and enemies. It tries to persuade us that we are more important, needed, or successful than others. And then we start to lose balance, get entitled, lose grip with reality, and damage our relationships with our work, and with other people. The ability to evaluate one's own ability is the most important skill of all. Without it, improvement is impossible. Getting the ego back into the proper equilibrium is perhaps the most important thing we can do to fix the various imbalances in our lives. In Taylor Haskin's, The Ego Is Not Your Amigo: Your Quick + Dirty Cheat Sheet to Overcome the Ego That's Been Holding You Back, you'll learn: What is the ego, and how it can destroy us Why ego and confidence are not the same thing The 8 ego red flags, and how they keep us down The 10 best ways to get our egos in check And much more! You'll also get a cheat sheet for a quick, no-nonsense refresher, whenever you need it! It's a universal rule of life: the more you control your ego, the better your life will be. Without fail. No matter who you are or what you've accomplished, it's time to get your ego in check so you can grow to your full potential. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Nolan.

Secret societies, immortality, murder mysteries and Las Vegas all in one book? Shut up and take my money. (John Scalzi on The Incrementalists) The Incrementalists are a secret society of 200 people - an unbroken lineage reaching back 40 thousand years. They cheat death, share lives and memories, and communicate with one another across nations and time. They have an epic history, an almost magical memory, and a very modest mission: to make the world better, a little bit at a time. Now Phil, the Incrementalist whose personality has stayed stable through more incarnations than anyone else's, has been shot dead. They'll bring him back - but first they need to know what happened. Their investigation will lead down unexpected paths in Arizona, and bring them up against corruption, racism, and brutality in high and low places alike. But the key may lay in one of Phil's previous lives, in "Bleeding Kansas" in the late 1850s - and the fate of the passionate abolitionist we remember as John Brown. Steven Brust and Skyler White's The Skill of Our Hands is the thrilling and thought-provoking follow-up to their critically acclaimed The Incrementalists. 1. Language: English.
