For readers are already familiar woth Greene's laws (the 48) and strategies (the 33), you'll find them sprinkled here and there in Mastery whenever they make sense.
This is the best of Greene because he seems to have become a master himself.
Fred Sanders's voice is clear and excellent even for a French listener like me.
Robert Greene has created a masterpiece of practical brilliance. We should all aspire to be masters in whatever we pursue. This is a very valuable guide for anyone who is seeking a greater purpose or meaning to your existence. I would highly recommend this to young adults who are transitioning from high school into an adult life and profession. But this is also valuable to anyone at any stage of their life.
Great anecdotes to back up good ideas. The author produces boring data, and spices it up with stories of interesting "masters"
Yikes! I can appreciate the tenants behind the book, but having to retread whole sections of earlier passages (verbatim) made me feel like I was the $10 I spent on it. I can save you your money: 1.find a thing you love 2. Do the thing ( even if it gets hard) 3. Don't let others be a negative influence over you 4. Look to other people who did the thing you love ( famous or not ) to help spur you on to your goal of mastering the thing.
At the end of the book , Greene reiterates all the biographies that are spread throughout the book. Why? I've read them all before?! That was silly. I expected so much more.
A shorter, breezier story and a less lecturing tone. Far too much repetition.
To monotone and not very expressive.
Yes. It challenges a person to seek their true vocation.
The challenging questions put forward by the author breaking the myth of those who have mastered their craft. And the stories used to illustrate his point.
Very good reader. Consistent!
No. I'ts not that kind of book
I really enjoyed the stories given but found it a bit too repetitive as the book was coming to an end. The repetition was unnecessary and felt like the author was trying to fill space.
This book is in the same vein as other classics from Robert Greene. I loved it and so will you.
Apprenticeship. When faced with boredom why we need to persist.
If you are looking to master a skill or want to build a great career this book is a must read.
Say something about yourself!
maybe i will listen to it again sometime, it was a good book
it is all some thing that have happen in real life.
i think it was great with these short storys about normal people training hard to become masters
no, but it make me think about my life and future
I loved this book, very exciting stories and examples of masters being taught by themselves and stories of their apprenticeships. I have listened to this book over 5 times in the first month and I keep getting more and more out of this book. Instant favorite in my collection of over 500 books. Daily listener and this book has excited me more than most.
