Book of the week on how to wield power today

The New Machiavelli: How to Wield Power in the Modern World by Jonathan Powell

The author is the highly intelligent former Chief of Staff to Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair. This is actually two books in one: an insider's view of life at 10 Downing Street and the decisions to go to war in Iraq and Afghanistan and  a sort of a super self-help book on how to wield power, as the title suggests. Very intelligent.
