Power Without Apologies

“I believe that the last thing the mature seeker needs in literature or talks today are chin-stroking ideas or ‘insights.’ The seeker requires power. Power—not force—to see through self-expressive wishes. Force dissipates and dies with its user. True power is generative: it creates and builds.”

With this trenchant introduction, scholar of esotericism Mitch Horowitz presents some of the most important and practical works, from history and today, on attaining and wielding ethical power. The Book of Power includes:
  • The Art of War by Sun Tzu, translated by British sinologist Lionel Giles
  • Crystalizing Public Opinion by Edward Bernays
  • The Science of Being Great by Wallace D. Wattles
  • The Power of Sex Transmutation by Mitch Horowitz
  • Your Invisible Power by Geneviève Behrend
  • At Your Command by Neville Goddard
  • The Magic Story by Frederick van Rensselaer Dey
  • The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli, abridgement based on the translation by Renaissance scholar N.H. Thomson
Here is a collection that brings methods and actionable ideas into focus for how to increase your command of life.
