The Craft of Power - PDF
The fusion of eastern mysticism and western pragmatism
A philosophical and strategic guide to the uses of power
Fortify yourself against the likes of you
Crime, it is here to stay—be versed
A power play without money can only be a farce
Mix blame with pain in your punishments
Expect foul play
Coil yourself omnidirectionally
Be quick in masking yourself and unmasking others
Martyrs must be honored if power is to flourish
Never confuse exhilaration with power
Never, never, never, never outshine the big boss
