really liked it

What I learned in this book, was not just about how to conquer anything I want and get away with it, but also about how much I learned about this author. This book is basically just a simple "rule the world-For dummies". It was really confusing at some points, though it made perfect sense at the same time. The beautiful thing about this book is that you can use this in every day situations. In example, you want to get rid of an enemy of yours. You don't necessarily kill them, but you poke him at all sides until he falls to the ground, then you go in and conquer. Another thing I liked is how Machiavelli was so confident, because he wrote of certain things about specific countries, and his specific opinion on them, which weren't always the nicest. But that just made this book even more fun. The only thing I didn't like was that this book was a bit hard for me to understand, with a large vocabulary of militaristic words I have never heard before. Quite a bit of research for me.
