    Alistair McAlpine(Author)
Ignore the latest buzz about the kinder, gentler world of new age, team–based management. It′s dog–eat–dog out there, and the sooner you realize it, the better. The New Machiavelli mines Machiavelli′s The Prince for the timeless rules and stratagems that can help today′s business rulers survive and prosper in the jungle of greed and treachery that is commerce. Alistair McAlpine enriches Machiavelli′s text with scenarios from modern business, offering keen new insight into what motivates people. You′ll learn the reasons why:
∗ Loyalty is not a reliable factor in the workplace
∗ Great power is held by the "little people" in a business
∗ It is better to spread power than to centralize it
∗ You should never believe your own publicity

Fail to read it at your peril.

"For most of my lifetime politicians have been trying to tell businessmen how to go about their tasks ... Both groups, however, will enjoy this shrewd commentary on Machiavelli′s timeless principles of skullduggery."–Margaret Thatcher

"Anyone working in corporate America who doesn′t find, read, and master Alistair McAlpine′s amazing new guidebook to the art of politics in business may soon find themselves self–employed." –Charles Saatchi, Partner, M&C Saatchi

"Written in a style, like Machiavelli′s own, at once didactic and charming... A work which is a standing satirical reproof to the various management manuals which promise corporate success."–Times Literary Supplement

Review Text

  • By Tom Cahill on 5 November 2013

    I knew which tactic he was using before I had any idea he'd written any books.Certain parties who he'd conspired with were known to me, but I didn't realise that this book was there to back this up.I've done some videos, but this will get you to my channel: ALPonz & Lord McAlpines 'shrewd commentary' on how to deal with publicity[...]Look at the other ones that are on the same theme and you'll see how his theories work in real life, in a topical context.People slagging this book off are way off the mark.

    It's an interesting book, the style takes a bit of getting used to though and the endorsement from Margaret Thatcher may put you off but it's worth a go. I think the subject is crying out to be tackled again but maybe in a clearer way.

    Nasty book by a nasty man. Reading page 176 may give a better understanding of recent media events in Britain.
