I read this book back in 2013 and remember thinking it was a good book. However I was still a bit younger but now I re listened to it at 26 years old and wow, it's really amazing to see how much I have changed since then.
This book really helps you get into that stoic mindset and have a fearless attitude that allows you to be able to walk away from anything. This in turn gives you the upper hand with most things and allows you to not waste so much time. I'm a much more successful man since time I read this book 3 years ago and I've been able to implement a lot of this mindset, I hope you are as well if you decide to pick it up.
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.
