More or less the Italian Renaissance version of How to Make Friends and Influence People. The Book of the Courtier offers a vibrant portrait of what life was like in the courts during Castiglione‘s time through a series of conversations debating the qualities of the perfect courtier and lady. Hilarious and informative, read this for its historical relevance or to simply become a bit more debonair yourself.
