Maybe try magazines to help with technical jargon - i.e. Pop. Sci., or anything by JAMA or APA...
As far as I know Hemmingway has a very journalistic approach to writing. Which means simple sentences and simple words. (I only read that one book about some old dude in high school) As to Machiavelli I only read his most famous work (dont remember the name now) and wording there is also pretty simple. Thats like anti-LSAT. And the same things goes for Wells.
I feel like novels isn't the way to go here. Something academic or scientific is required.
I believe you're referencing "The Prince".
Both Henningway and Machiavelli are deceptivly simplistic. The number of words per sentence structure has no bearing on content, both explicit and implicit.
Want something strictly scientific/academic? Real any of the magazines I suggested.
Yea The Prince, I remember.
Thx for advice, I will look into it.
