You deserve to have power. It is yours for the taking. Gene Simmons is here to unlock the doors to the temple.

Gene Simmons, Kiss front man, multihyphenate entrepreneur, and master of self-invention, shares his philosophy on power—how to attain it, how to keep it, and how to harness it as a driving force in business and in life.

As cofounder of Kiss, America’s number one gold-record-award-winning group of all time, Simmons knows the thrill and seduction of power firsthand. But gold records alone don’t equal power. The decisions you make once you attain a certain level of success are what separate the pretenders from the pantheon.

Inspired by Niccolo Machiavelli’s The Prince, Simmons offers his unique take on the dynamics of power in every realm of life, from the bedroom to the boardroom, from the world of rock, celebrity, and social media to politics. With one-of-a-kind anecdotes from his life and career as well as stories from historical and contemporary masters of power—including Winston Churchill, Napoleon Bonaparte, Warren Buffett, Michael Jordon, Oprah, and Elon Musk—Simmons crafts a persuasive and provocative theory on how the pursuit of power drives civilization and defines our lives.

The rules of power are changing in today’s fast-paced, hyperconnected world in a way that Machiavelli never could have imagined, and we all need to learn to adapt. Simmons tells readers: Ignore the negatives. Be unrelenting. Rise above the rest. You are the architect of your success.

Review Quotes

“Irrepressible voice artist Alan Sklar narrates this entertaining and enlightening audio by the bass player of the legendary rock band KISS. Sklar’s resonant voice is always a big plus on any audio he performs, but it’s his excitement about these ideas and his connection with the rock star’s confidence that make this pithy advice so memorable. Simmons describes his journey from childhood immigrant to music legend/entrepreneur and then fleshes out the lessons he learned with colorful biographical snippets about people like Napoleon, Oprah, Michael Jordan, and others. Don’t be ashamed, he says, to reinvent yourself, take chances, work really hard, and be ruthless when necessary. No fluffy celebrity tome, this is an intelligent collection of hard-won wisdom—a convincing reminder of how essential power and money are if you want to have an impact in any field.”
