HTWFAIP is a good book, not because what he says is profound or earth shattering, but because it made me realize how many phonies out there use his tactics, and don't actually give a shit about what you have to say.

"48 laws of power"

Really relaxing book to read, beware of some minor historical inaccuracies though.

For example, saying that Hideyoshi was emperor should not be possible in a bestseller among other things.

Only haven't read Trump's book, can't do much wrong with the other ones. If you're autistic how to win friends should help you a lot.

You can get most of these at used book stores for $3 each (then also other people have written notes/underlined etc). Some of them do repeat shit and say things that you should all ready be doing unless you're retarded but its still nice to read and reaffirm that you're doing things the right way.

OP out of books up there I've only read HTWF but some things are helpful in it. It reminds you on things to do in social interactions and gives you stories of men who have applied this and it has made their lives better so its an easy quick read.

48 laws of power is entertaining, but it's also a bit silly, especially if you listen to the audiobook.

the information is useful, especially for being aware of how people may operate against you. i know he says that not taking it seriously is a mistake, but you can't take it too seriously. it's fedoracore to live by the code in every moment.

Rich daddy set him up, didn't beat the market average, detached from reality in his ivory tower. Not going to be accurate information.

48 laws of power
One law tells you to hire your enemies then another tells you to crush your enemies, the reasoning behind most are spurious, based on hearsay or incidental evidence and probably depend more on the situation rather than being like the laws of physics. Warren Buffett has been friends with Charlie Munger for decades without stabbing him in the back as the book suggests, there are many cliques and cartels where members trust each other and gain a strong advantage in business. Anyone can be amoral, it is not difficult, that isn't useful information.

If you want to make a genuine effort to become a millionaire you can't afford to waste time on bullshit. You can read them for amusement, but they are full of memes so I wouldn't take them seriously.

@Stupidasole

Exactly this.

48 Laws, although not -complete- garbage, is not based on any scientific studies, but rather on anecdotes. While that doesn't necessarily mean that the "laws" are false, the fact remains that the "laws" are not based on anything verifiable, but just on "I think that X because it happened for Y person at Z time".

That estimate only holds if you estimate Trump spending to be zero. Pro tip: His spending isn't zero. Turning a million dollars into multiple billions is an achievement.

"The Intelligent Investor" (TII) is not as good as it once was (i.e back in the 19th century, whenever Buffett studied under him). It's got some good ideas, but the world has drastically changed and reading it is an OK introduction to value investing (overall, not contemporary). Recommending TII to someone looking to trade for a living is like recommending Tasty Trade to someone looking to trade options. Don't do it, TII is basically pop-lit (it's in the New York Times best sellers, that should tell you everything).

Haven't read Trump's book. I know some guys would say it's an alright read, nothing groundbreaking.

"48 Laws of Power": Remember the laws and you'll be fine. Good read.

"How to Win Friends and Influence People": Good too if you don't know how to schmooze (see: @Spamalot
)
, but don't go overkill. A friend I grew up with obsessed about this book and even now he comes off as forceful and like he's pretending.

None of these books are likely to help you in any dramatic way.

@Stark_Naked
This guy is right. Books are really only good for a few things: History, Classic Lit, and Philosophy. The rest, i.e how-to's, can easily be found on the internet (for free).

Skipped through most of this thread. Discussion is really thin and dumb at the moment.

Thanks for showing us these gar-bage books of gar-BAGE....read the Art of War by Sun Tzu, The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli then read the King James version of the bible...finish these and get back to me cause next will be Timon of Athens but that's some heavy shit...you'll need some help with that one.

"Art of War" is the better "48 Laws of Power." The Prince is an alright book, the immorality is hyped to hell and it's a pretty tame book. Would recommend Macbeth before Timon.

Intelligent Investor goes on your bookshelf to look smart because it has no practical value.

Art of the Deal is good for, well, deals.

Laws of Power is good if you're a sociopath climbing some kind of power ladder or need to stay in a position of power, I guess.

If you have no idea how to make deals with others or have shit people skills read Art of the Deal. That should be the only reason to read it, it is more self help than anything else. The people who call it trash probably haven't read it or don't see the need for its message.
