Machiavellians may not get to heaven, but on earth they have a definite edge on the competition. In this pithy and discretely vicious guide, Stanley Bing shows how the Florentine master statesman would handle today's myriad corporate challenges, seize the future by the throat, and make it cough up money, power, and superior office space.
What Would Machiavelli Do? He would feast on other people's discord. He wouldn't exactly seek the company of ass-kissers and bimbos, but he wouldn't reject them out of hand either. He would realize that loving yourself means never having to say you're sorry. He would kill people, but only if he could feel good about himself afterward. He would establish and maintain a psychotic level of control. He would use other people's opinions to sell his book.
