I really liked the info, but it did get pretty redundant. I know the author makes the disclaimer that there's redundant stories, but it seemed like it really went overboard and didn't really need to be 16 audio hours. Still, there's good, even inspiring info about how to master new skills.
I don't understand why this audiobook's sound is SO bad. I mean at this point when we so much technology to produce high quality sound. The horrible quality of the sound makes difficult to listen to this book for more than 5 min.
The horrible quality of the sound makes difficult to listen to this book for more than 5 min, I have not finished the first 10 min and I don't feel I want to listen more.

i think so. I've only ever heard 3 audio books, all by robert green, all bought here. with examples from great historical people, mastery becomes a great visualization. i'm a wiser man for the listening and enjoyed the process.
hard to turn it off, but too involved and complex. break it down, listen to it again.
like his previous books, don't recommend them to your enemies;)
This is a great book I've recommended it several times already. He uses real life examples to explain human nature and ways to find opportunity.
I liked Robert's approach to explain the concept of mastery through real life examples. I've admired the works of DaVinci, Mozart, and more but I've never heard so many entertaining bio's all tied together with a common thread. If you are a person dedicated to the mastery of anything, whether it be yourself, your career, or anything else...I believe this book should be in your library.
This is in the top 5 books I've ever come across, and I'm including the bible and spiritual books in my top 5. I found this audio to be transformational, not just a good listen with practical tips but instead a life changing experience. Looking forward to listening to more Robert Greene material.
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.
