God created woman for man's pleasure, so man should enjoy her. If she no longer pleases him, he should discard her. That is the kernel of the creed of the apostle of power, Niccolo Machiavelli, revealed in this hitherto unpublished manuscript, which has been religiously translated, and cautiously updated, by Prof. Thomas Lundmark to preserve the puissance of the original. In this book Machiavelli leaves the world of geopolitics behind, and enters the era of biopolitics. He satirizes our times and offers frank observations on winning strategies in the battle of the sexes.
