Overview

Il Principe (The Prince) is a political treatise by the Florentine public servant and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. Originally called De Principatibus (About Principalities), it was written in 1513, but not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death. The treatise is not representative of the work published during his lifetime, but it is the most remembered, and the work responsible for bringing "Machiavellian" into wide usage as a pejorative term. It has also been suggested by some critics that the piece is, in fact, a satire.

Loved it..

I appreciate the advice given, but the method of turning it into an ebook left it with many errors that could have fairly easily been fixed with some editing.

This translation is so difficult to read I almost gave up after 40 pages. Sentence structure is awkward and it reads like an English translation made by a non-native English speaker. There are better translations of this book. I do not recommend this one.
