This is the perfect book for anyone who is interested in learning about political theory and leadership. Machiavelli describes in detail of what it takes to have a successful and lasting government. If you liked Machiavelli's "the Prince" or if you are interested in learning about politics and leadership I highly recommend this book. Machiavelli uses examples from the ancient Roman republic and also examples of governments from his own time to support his theories on what is necessary to do in order to create and maintain a successful goverment. He also gives advice on how to be a successful leader and politician along with advice on how to manage war.
