Well read, discernable, high quality. I listened to the book comfortably at 2.4 speed.
The content itself is a strong mix of Greene's other books with fascinating anecdotes, mini historical lessons, and enterprising language with an acute awareness of Curtis Jackson's rise from a ruthless upbringing and into the realization of his own vision. This path was anything but direct, and the impact is only compounded by the challenges he faced.
The only con, and reason for a list star, is that the retelling of Curtis' most notable life changing event- being shot in the face at close range- is accounted multiple times throughout the book and comes across redundant. Perhaps this was an attempt to maintain a central theme was lost to me with a faster listening pace, though I would have preferred it much less frequently. Still highly recommended, and would have taken off less than a star if possible.
The 50th Law is one of the best books I've ever read. The topics were masterfully framed. The stories will help you transform how you may feel about fear as it relates to business, taking risks, and experiencing life on your terms.
I gained a lot from this book and will be reading it again. I HIGHLY recommend it.
I loved it, it brought so much clarity to reality and dealing with people in many facets and avenues. I could relate to the book on many levels.
Great book expecially if you like 50 music gave me a good understanding of why he makes certain moves and help me understand how important being fearless and getting out of my comfort zone is to achieving my dreams!
I liked some of the ideas about living fearlessly and pursing life goals. I disliked the style of presentation. It needlessly, repeated the same 50 Cent stories over and over again until it almost became nauseating. At least 100 pages could have been cut out of the book if some of the needless repetition was cut.
I have not listened to any other books by 50 Cent, but I have listened to nearly all of Robert Greene's books, and this was my least favorite.
I have enjoyed most of Robert Greene's books, so would probably check out others, but likely would not listen to 50th Law again.
I enjoyed some of the content in the book, and some of the concepts, but would have enjoyed a much shorter version. Unlike, books such as the 48 Laws of Power that was all solid content, The 50th law repeated itself far too much.
