This book is a great buy. To purchase these selections separately would be expensive if you could even find some of them. Additionally, I really like the translation done by Peter Constantine. Also, there is such variety among the selections in this edition that one is able to see Machiavelli's great range. Even though The Art of War, Florentine Histories, and The Discourses are abridged here, this is definitely worth every penny and then some. This collection is an absolute must for anyone who appreciates Machiavelli's style. (On a side note: I love Rules for an Elegant Social Circle. It is so applicable today that it is almost hard to believe he wrote it centuries ago. Really funny.)
