THE 48 LAWS OF POWER PODCAST

Don’t hate the player and don’t hate the game. Instead, you must learn how to play and avoid being played.

Robert Greene’s life-changing, bestselling book, The 48 Laws of Power, lays bare the history, practice, psychology, and philosophies of power that ultimately shape all human relations. Are you ready to see and master the Matrix?

Tired of playing by the rules but never getting what you want? It’s time to realise that you’ve been given the rules to a different game. The real game – of life, of love, of power – is quite different.

In this podcast series, ‘Exploring The 48 Laws of Power’, we are your guides to each of the laws and their uses. We carefully dissect each one, delve into the historical examples Robert provides, explain how they can apply to our modern lives, and share the times we’ve followed or transgressed them.

Learn to develop mastery according to Robert Greene’s principles and use the 48 Laws of Power in everyday life. Train yourself to foresee and avoid betrayal; to advance your interests in the face of opposition; to hone your emotional intelligence so you can read other people and predict their behaviour… all to your ultimate advantage.

But this is not about becoming a sociopath. As Robert Greene makes clear time and again, the Laws apply whether you like them or not. Like social gravity, they are the forces which shape our interactions with the outside world. Just as you wouldn’t be able to play – let alone win – any sports without an intuitive understanding of basic physics, without a deep understanding of the Laws of Power, you’ll never be a successful player in life. The world can be a harsh place and even if you don’t want to be a master manipulator, as they say in combat sports, you still need to defend yourself at all times.

Ready to take control of your life? You will be after exploring The 48 Laws of Power. Join us and a community of listeners from around the world as we draw back the veil and get to grips with how things really work.

This is our first Robert Greene podcast, with future explorations of Mastery, The 33 Strategies of War, and The Art of Seduction to follow.
