The Letters of Machiavelli book. This collection of the most brilliant and characteristic. I have read somewhere that Niccolo Machiavelli's personal correspondences are treated with great renown by Italians, how this exactly works out I'm not fully sure, since a greater majority of this writing is very personal (sometimes trivially), esoterically political, and not quite globally compelling with regards to literary power (their personal letters lest we forget).

Here is the world's most famous master plan for seizing and holding power. Astonishing in its candor The Prince even today remains a disturbingly realistic and prophetic work on what it takes to be a prince. When, in 1512, Machiavelli was removed from his post in his beloved Florence, he resolved to set down a treatise on leadership that was practical, not idealistic. In The Prince he envisioned would be unencumbered by ordinary ethical and moral values; his prince would be man and beast, fox and lion.

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. ― Rabindranath Tagore. by Niccolò Machiavelli · David Wootton. Here are The Prince and the most important of the Discourses newly translated into spare, vivid English. Theodoric possessed great talents both for war and peace; in the former he was always conqueror, and in the latter he conferred very great benefits upon the cities and people under him. He distributed the Ostrogoths over the country, each district under its leader, that he might more conveniently command them in war, and govern them in peace.

This collection of the most brilliant and characteristic letters of Niccolò Machiavelli displays the vital and penetrating mind of the man who wrote the first work of modern political science. These letters, which reveal Machiavelli's critical intelligence, sense of humor, and elegant sense, are our chief source of information about his personal life. As such, they will serve as a vivid introduction to the personalities and events of the most turbulent period of the Renaissance, and they will also enlighten people who have been fascinated by the political thinker who wrote The Prince and The Discourses on Livy.
