Tags: 48 Rules, Joost Elffers, Robert Greene
Time to revisit a post from my old Xanga blog. Unlike blogspot, where you can type in a word or phrase and find a blog that was created and abandoned in a single day in the year 2003 (while some other bloggers who post faithfully on a regular basis get their blogs deleted for no apparent reason), most of the early Xanga blogs have vanished.
The 48 Rules of Power by Robert Greene and Joost Elffers is a book, which on initial inspection seems to make sense. It reminds blogger Emerizal Jaafar of Chairman Mao. But how does it play out in real life? I've found two bloggers who have written about their experiences applying the 48 rules to their lives: Martin Aquino and Pearl.
