From the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power comes the definitive new book on decoding the behavior of the people around you

Robert Greene is a master guide for millions of readers, distilling ancient wisdom and philosophy into essential texts for seekers of power, understanding and mastery. Now he turns to the most important subject of all - understanding people's drives and motivations, even when they are unconscious of them themselves.

We are social animals. Our very lives depend on our relationships with people. Knowing why people do what they do is the most important tool we can possess, without which our other talents can only take us so far. Drawing from the ideas and examples of Pericles, Queen Elizabeth I, Martin Luther King Jr, and many others, Greene teaches us how to detach ourselves from our own emotions and master self-control, how to develop the empathy that leads to insight, how to look behind people's masks, and how to resist conformity to develop your singular sense of purpose. Whether at work, in relationships, or in shaping the world around you, The Laws of Human Nature offers brilliant tactics for success, self-improvement, and self-defense.


  • A platform for the dissolution of fear and social anxiety

    By madskilllz16
    A compelling collection of anecdotal lessons throughout history that allow our purview of reality to encompass a more fully fledged vantage point behind that of our own eyes by dissolving of the normal preprogramed and in born egotism and assimilating our piece of reality by plugging into the collective unconscious that has solutions to every conceivable question, even that of life and death and the meaning of each therein.
  • Humans will be humans.

  • Everyone should read this book.....

    By Lumberjack Bear
    With all sincerity...I have never read a book more spot-on than this one. This book will help you understand the interactions you have with others around you. But more importantly it will help you to better understand yourself and the roles you play everyday. However the real gift of reading this book is the increased self awareness it offers. It gives you a peek behind the curtain to really see the person who seems to know all the right buttons to push and the mental motivations that seem to spur them on. And instead of being a blind unconsciously manipulated participant in someone's never ending drama. You become an observer who has gained the unique ability to gaze inside another's psyche with sharpened insight and rationality. And that my friend gives you what we are all searching for ......real peace of mind.
