Throughout history, behind so many de facto rulers, there can often be found a shadowy puppetmaster pulling the strings. Using examples from Machiavelli, Catherine de Medici and Alexander Hamilton to Dick Cheney, Zhou Enlai and Joseph Stalin, Kerwin Swint presents profiles of notorious “king whisperers,” spanning the globe and historical periods, showing how they employed unique styles of power politics to wrest control. From spies, silver-tongued devils, and the truly evil, this is a brilliant tapestry of behind-the-scenes schemers of all shapes and sizes.

I couldn't even give this a star if somebody $$$$ mr that is how awfull this book is! I am twelve years old and when my parents gave me my nook simple touch for my tenth b- day this dumb book was here. It started out with how someone had been murdered. I mean what person really wants to read that especially a child my age. When the people make books like these they should really make the title or summery explain a little bit of what happens. My advice to anyone younger than sixteen is to ask your parents if they think you should be reading this.
