Contents
The prince and the promise : what Machiavelli can do for you -- My Machiavellian moment : or, why I ever thought this experiment would be a good idea -- It is dangerous to be overly generous : a good ruler sets limits -- Sound rules and strong disciplinary forces : laying down the law -- It is more difficult to rule a new principality than a hereditary one : on disciplining step-children -- It is of great importance that a child hears any act praised or censured : the power of positive reinforcement -- A prince ought to study the actions of illustrious men : teaching by example -- Tardiness often robs us of opportunity : learning not to procrastinate -- One who becomes a prince through the favor of the people ought to keep them friendly : sometimes, the best way to enforce a rule is to break it -- Consider whether an action's perils exceed its advantages : picking your battles -- The best fortress a prince can possess is the affection of the people: strengthening the ties that bind -- Don't abandon what is for what should be : accepting the reality in front of you -- Is it better to be feared than loved? : testing the limits of Machiavelli's advice -- A prince must be deceitful if it is to his advantage : knowing when (and when not) to lie -- Internal subversion is more perilous than external attacks : dealing with dissent and desperation -- There are only individual egos crazy for love : confronting and overcoming fear -- Recognize the capable and keep them faithful : finding and keeping allies -- Go straight to the truth of things, rather than dwell in dreams : accepting what is -- Deliverance is of no use which does not depend upon yourself : developing self-reliance -- On humor : Machiavelli's lighter side -- One who relies entirely on fortune is lost : taking matters into your own hands
