just like 48 laws and 33 strategies this book has invaluable information although I found it to be redundant irs still a great read but perpetuates the myth the Wright brothers were first in flight.
this book is different. through the stories of masters both ancient and modern I was able to really imagine the points the author was making
I loved it. I have listened to it many times over and each time I find something that did not stand out the first time I heard it. Never boring.
A masterpiece by Mr Greene.
The book itself is very well structured and the way it is narrated makes it even more attractive. Often times I found myself on the edge, like listening to a mystery novel and wanting to see what happens next. It's very rarely that this type of book gives you the same emotions as a novel does, but Mastery is a piece of...mastery!
At first I read some negative reviews on the fact that some stories of masters repeat themselves as the book progresses. Yes, Robert Greene mentions the same stories of masters a number of times, but they are never told in the same fashion. First of all they are used multiple times to underline different steps of mastery, proving different points in the process. Secondly, each time a story is repeated it will reveal some extra details about a specific action or thinking point of one master. So, from my point of view it is not repetitive, but it reveals the paths to mastery in several steps, using the same example. To me this is very important as each story is analysed multiple times, like a case study, making you remember the key components of steps to mastery!
