(4.3 stars; 60 reviews)

ll Principe (The Prince) is a political treatise by the Florentine writer Niccolò Machiavelli, originally called “De Principatibus” (About Principalities). It was written around 1513, but not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli’s death. The treatise is not actually representative of his published work during his lifetime, but it is certainly the best remembered one. (Summary from Wikipedia.org)

Reviews

Good read, good recording

(4 stars)

Books recorded by multiple readers are always a mixed bag, but this one is consistently pretty good. Seven sections are recorded by Chip, who reads thoughtfully and expressively.
