The 48 Laws of the Game

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Star of the HBO documentaries Pimps Up, Ho's Down and American Pimp, Annual Players' Ball "Mack of the Year" winner Ken Ivy reveals the unwritten rules that took him from the ghetto streets to the executive suites.

The names change, but the game remains the same. In Pimpology, Ken Ivy pulls a square's coat on the unwritten rules that took him from the ghetto streets to the executive suites. Ken's lessons will serve any person in any interaction: Whether at work, in relationships, or among friends, somebody's got to be on top. To be the one with the upper hand, you've got to have good game, and good game starts with knowing the rules.

If you want the money, power, and respect you dream of, you can't just "pimp your ride," you need to pimp your whole life. And unless you've seen Ray Charles leading Stevie Wonder somewhere, you need Ken's guidelines to do it. They'll reach out and touch you like AT&T and bring good things to life like GE. Then you can be the boss with the hot sauce who gets it all like Monty Hall.

Rules of the road

An alternative to traditional business books. Follow along as Pimp'n Ken explains the lay of the land for masters and servants. Although it is about pimping, many of the rules can be applied to all business.

Kens attitude and poor vocabulary can get trying at times, but the ideas are solid. I have read this book once before in a print edition about 2 years ago and again in the IBook format, I'd definitely suggest it to others.

Mr burgundy

Very insightful and applies beyond the game pimping as it can be applied to the job sector and your personal life

Great Read!
