Lucy Black, February 9, 2010 (view all comments by Lucy Black)
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.
