    Story

    Some minutes within the story I thought I was reading a Robert Greene's book, because there were many great characters from the past, with the same paced rhythm. In the end Ryan Holiday explains that Robert Greene is his mentor and it all made sense.
    Overall, it is a good book. I don't think it is practical one, but the author says it is.
    I didn't give it a five star because the last hour and a half it is a podcast between the author and Tim Ferris, the author of 4 hour workweek.
    I am eager to listen to Ryan Holiday next book.

    We are stuck, stymied, frustrated. But it needn't be this way. There is a formula for success that's been followed by the icons of history - from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs - a formula that let them turn obstacles into opportunities. Faced with impossible situations, they found the astounding triumphs we all seek.

    Story

    I learned about Ben Carson by watching the great movie "Gifted Hands". His mother was married when she was 13 to a pastor, was a semi-illiterate woman, who discovered that her husband had another wife, ran away with her 2 small children and worked as a maid, many times in 2-3 jobs, and barely made it. When Ben, the younger kid, was in 5th grade, he was semi-illiterate himself, his best grade was a "D", couldn't do math and everyone made fun of him. Suddenly, his mother cut the TV time and made them read 2 books a week. This was the turning point to Ben and his brother. Ben Carson became the best in his class, graduated in Medicine from Yale University and went to the field of Neurosurgery in Johns Hopkins where he became the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery when he was only 33....
    An excellent man, a superachiever. Read/ listen to the book and feel inspired.

Scott's greatest hits:
  • How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big: Kind of the Story of My Life

    "See It Through To Get The Value"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I am part of the generation who worshiped Dilbert. Being an office dweller, I can fondly recall seeing Dilbert cartoons posted on the door's of office colleagues, and sometimes having my own favorite Dilbert cartoons that speak directly to the idiocy of the situation I find myself in.

    Thus I am already predisposed to like a serious business book written by the author of Dilbert.

    That being said, the book starts off with many many example of where the author has failed in life. The ideas he had before Dilbert that didn't work, the investments he's made in businesses after Dilbert became a success that failed, his personal medical problems that left him unable to speak in public for a long period of time. None of which are particularly funny, but serve the purpose of how he failed much more times than he has succeeded. Yet he's done very well.

    The latter half of the book is where the real meat of it is. Concrete advice on how to arrange your life. What subjects to study, where to invest your time, and little tips on how to increase your communication skills, speak in public, topics of small-talk conversations, and the like.

    It's not the perfect book. It's not something I recommend in lieu of the classics in the field of business or self-improvement. But it's worth your Audible credit and worth a listen. You'll be thinking of this book for days after you've finished reading it.

    Story
    What did you love best about The 50th Law?

    This book was unexpectedly deep. The last chapter has to do with confronting our own mortality. This book aimed to unlock fears we all have and allow us to unleash our success by getting rid of them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 50th Law?

    Did I mention this book is deep. It's not something you can ingest in 1 or 2 days. This will take a while to sink in and be digested.


    Did 50 Cent and Robert Greene do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Ha! Well, um, yes. It was very easy to differentiate Robert Greene from Curtis Jackson.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The 50th Law?

    I really should spend time thinking about life, death, and all the things I need to do now and now wait until it's too late. What is the worst that could happen? What IF I lost it all, and had to get it back? Would I work even harder if I had nothing to lose?


    Any additional comments?

    I was expecting this to be more about 50 Cent. This book is NOT really about 50 cent. He makes a few cameo appearances here and there, but basically it's only tangentially related to him.

    This is one of the few books that I would recommend to virtually anyone. It is funny and engaging with an obvious, but almost universally ignored thesis, that people don’t have good strategies to achieve happiness. The author demonstrates this in quite a few humorous and compelling ways. I am a big believer in the basic advice in this book. If you want to be happy, find people like yourself, who are older than you, and ask them what has made them happy and what they would have done differently. Although this seems rather obvious, it is seldom done, and even more seldom taken to heart. I recommend listening to this book with an open mind, seeing the ideas as obvious, but nevertheless seeing surprising and counter-intuitive.

Talk One: "Jesus: Forgiving Victim, Transforming Savior". If we imitate the way Jesus lived the role of victim, we will be able to live the Christian mystery. Jesus suffers freely but does not pass on the pain. He forgives, which destroys the death that confronts us. He says, “No one else is your problem. You are the locus of conversion and transformation.”
