Out of the 48 laws of power, we have to choose 5 that we liked the most and then we have explain why? The 1st is law 1 “Never Outshine the Master”. I like this law because just by reading the law itself gives you a definition. You always want to please your boss, make him/her feel good as well as look good in the eyes of the people around him/her.

I liked this law because it teaches us to be that we can still do all the things that we want, we just have to use other people’s hand so that your image will still be spotless and people still respects you And the last is Law 40 “Despise the Free Lunch”.
