Nimalan Mahendran

This presentation is heavily based on a book I finished reading recently. The book is about guidelines for accumulating, maintaining and using power and is told through a number of historical anecdotes. You will probably hate the book, unless you are able to temporarily suspend your sense of morality. I will basically present a series of poorly illustrated and badly related historical anecdotes based on possibly inaccurate descriptions of historical events that were not really very well-written by the author. My drawing skills are so bad that I labeled my drawings and yea the whole presentation is pretty bad actually. And since I am now a newly-finished graduate student, I also really have zero power and hardly an expert on the subject. So come laugh at me and when I do have power, I will crush you all like insects.
