Leadership is a life-changing, three-book collection of abridged classics designed to guide you towards success in all areas of your life. Niccolò Machiavelli’s The Prince is history’s greatest guide to attaining and keeping power; Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Power has been selected by scholars as being culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it; and it may be said that no greater work on the subject of military theory exists than Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. Abridged and introduced by PEN Award-winning historian Mitch Horowitz, these exquisitely brief and faithful condensations on leadership will mark a true turning point in your life and career.
