THE 48 LAWS OF POWER ANIMATED SUMMARY | INTRODUCTION
Hello & welcome to my channel, illacertus.
Here you’ll find the best books on power, strategy, war & seduction summarized in an
animated fashion. The footage you’re watching right now is a
sped-up compilation of some of my recent work on The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene for
which I just got done covering all the chapters. You might ask yourself, why is this book so
important? It’s essentially THE best self-development book out there, helping me and countless others
make sense of the very political & profit driven, modern-day world we live in, while
it also serves as a fantastic introduction to Machiavellianism basing its observations
on relevant historical events & figures. Each video on The 48 Laws of Power playlist
starts by explaining the definition of the Law like this.
The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene Law 48: Assume Formlessness
By taking a shape, by having a visible plan, you open yourself to attack. Instead of taking
a form for your enemy to grasp keep yourself adaptable and on the move. Accept the fact
that nothing is certain and no law is fixed. The best way to protect yourself is to be
as fluid and formless as water; never bet on stability or lasting order. Everything
changes. Then, with the help of my illustrations, we
look into examples from historical characters such as Napoleon, Louis XIV, Alexander the
Great, Socrates, the Spartans and many more where the specific law has been observed and
either applied correctly or completely ignored. And finally, at the end of the video we explore
the concepts & ideas behind each chapter, draw our conclusions & recap the lessons we’ve
learned. You’ll find that the quality of the videos
improves A LOT throughout the series and it’s important to know that each law has its own
theme, meaning you can start anywhere & skip ahead to the chapter that most interests you.
With this book coming to an end I’m already working on The 50th Law, The Art of Seduction
& Mastery by my favorite author Robert Greene plus The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli, The
Art of War by Sun Tzu and Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay on Self-Reliance to name just a few
works in the process. I sincerely hope you join the illacertus community
