50's story is incredible. How he continues to reinvent himself is inspiring!
Hearing the contrast in voices is great especially with 50 actually reading his quotes at the bringing of each chapter.
It helped motivate me to re-brand my business and to grow and change in my environment and not become complaisant.
I found this book full of life lessons. Using examples of History and 50 cents life experience. The last chapter alone I felt could have been it's own book. A lot of information and insight which I would need to look over again.
The book is mixture of all Mastery and 48 law of power. I think this book would cater really well to young adults.
I loved the last chapter the best.
I believe dealing with fear. Not to fear anyone and anything. Learning to sometimes just walk away.
Life changing book.
The realism. The intricate details - the good and the bad.
I haven't heard any other book from 50 Cent before, but I have read The Power of Seduction, and The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene. I would rank this book right above The Power of Seduction, and right below The 48 Laws of Power... In that, that very insightful, and interesting style of Robert Greene's that I have come to love, is displayed first hand in this book. While breaking down the intelligence it took 50 Cent to maneuver from Urban Ghettos to the Boardroom, Robert Greene would relate different aspects of 50 Cent's intelligence (and perseverance) to many great people throughout History, such as Malcolm X, Divinci, Jon of Ach, and Napolian, just to name a few.
"The Ultimate Law"
"A must read for anyone who wants to open up an uncharted level of intelligence within themselves."
I would recommend this book to anyone even if you haven't read The 48 Laws of Power by Mr. Greene. This book is that easy to understand and follow. Very manual-like. But to make it all come together nicely and fully appreciate the genius that is the author and his message, try reading the first 48 if you can as well.
I love AUDIBLE! I never get mad at traffic jams and can listen to many different books, despite of my short time.
I like Robert Greene. But this one is not his best book. He repeats a lot the story of 50 Cent, that could have been one chapter of the book. But every chapter he insists of coming back to that story. But don't get me wrong, I liked the book as a whole.
My tip is: If you want a GREAT Robert Greene's book, read MASTERY.
The lessons and laws.
I wouldn't compare it something else it in a league of it's own.
Voice tone and inflection.
The real truth in life and business success.
While not a huge fan of rap I do like Robert Greene. $.50 and Greene offer great advice on how to make your own success in this life.
I've listened to several of Robert Greene's other works (The 48 Laws of Power, The 33 Strategies of War) and now The 50th Law. This one is a bit different. Most of the time the books are full of amazing and interesting stories from history. This one is no exception. You still get tales of Machiavelli and Napoleon, but this time Robert Greene draws parallels to a current and still living person Curtis Jackson (aka 50 Cent). I thought the stories shared from 50 Cents life were fascinating and provided a more relate-able look into the 48 Laws of Power (don't get me wrong, stories about court life and the battle field are interesting, just not something too many of us face day to day). I just wish there were more. There's an equal split between stories of 50 Cent and stories from history. I wish it was more skewed towards stories about 50 Cent.
Robert Greene does the bulk of the narration (50 Cent reads a line at the beginning of each chapter) and, for an author, does a good job. If you like anything else Robert Greene has done you'll probably enjoy this.
Yes. The book is all about developing a better mindset and becoming independent.
I listened to this book in long stretches of time. I never found myself getting tired of the narration.
This will surely get repeat listens in upcoming years.
