    Chanakya Neeti is the English translation of Chanakya’s Neetishastra. It lists out various tenets that are relevant even today, that aim to govern a person’s way of life and the society as a whole.

    Summary Of The Book

    Chanakya, also known as Vishnu Gupta or Kautilya, was an Indian professor of political science and economics at Takshashila University in the ancient times. He was a chief advisor to the Mauryan emperor Chandragupta, and later to his son Bindusara. He played a prominent role in the establishment of the Mauryan Empire. He has authored the ancient Indian political dissertation called Arthasastra (Economics).

    His works were rediscovered in 1915.

    Chanakya Neeti is a result of Chanakya's in-depth study and understanding of the Indian way of life. The book is a set of tenets that spell out the ideal way for an individual to behave and deal with the society around them. He does so by way of Neeti Sutras (originally in Sanskrit), which are short sentences but have a powerful message in them. The book has these Neeti Sutras listed with their relevant English translation and details how they are relevant in today's world. Success is ensured in any aspect of life if these tenets are followed by a person.

    While reading this book, one comes across many messages such as, a wise son is always better than hundreds of foolish ones, and the primary duty of all parents is to provide their child with the best possible education they can afford. Chanakya Neeti is a useful guide even in the present times, showing an individual the ideal way of living in relation to their family, society and country. It also goes on to explain the concept of Karma and the laws around it. It also states that Dharma is the only thing that is permanent in this world and lists the many vices that one should keep away from to lead a happy and satisfying life.

    Complete Book but for Translations only

    This Book consists of the translations of Chanakya Neeti.
    But this book does not contains the Purports or explainations which is good and bad at the same time.
    I basically just wanted the translations because the meanings of these verses are simple to understand.
    Many mundane and unauthorised Authors may interpret their own ideas or thinking which may corrupt the actual understanding of the verses

    Good book

    This book is a good collection of sloka's. Most of them are directed to social life, the way a person should behave an act in society, family, responsibility, karma.

    But I feel more elaborate meanings could have been provided. That would have been really nice.

    Anyways a good book.

    A key to transform a person into an ideal and strategic minded person.
    Translations are done in a nice manner and when u read it , you relax, you savour the beauty of its words. Chanakya's sutras are the best part of this book. It will turn out your senses and you will start to know why so many authors write books on his tactics!!
    in short : A must buy!!!!!

    This is not the book I expected

    Since Chanakya niti is too famous and many would love to read it but if you are looking for core of that. This is not the part you would think. This is too philosophical and compilation of Sanskrit poetry and their translations in English. Which merely impress the reader.

    I would not recommend this for the knowledge of Chanakya Niti. Search for some other book.

    I expected great from this book, but not up to the Mark!

    Chanakya's tactics should have been clearly mentioned, so that even a common man can understand that. I agree all the Shloka's are good & even the meaning is also provided, but if they could have explained it in a better way by giving examples, then it would have been too good.This book is full of sloka's, but there are some other books which are too good for Shloka's. I am not saying this book is bad, but still this could have been better.

    Not as I expected!

    I ordered this book to get some insight into strategy making, but it is merely a collection of his sloka's which normally everyone knows. It is the application of these which makes sense....I guess there are other books available which presents implementation of Chanakya's tactics in business, day to day life....would not recommend for someone who is expecting too much out of this book! After all its just 99!
