This book makes no attempt to be anything more than what it is - a thoroughly interesting study of life skills we all ultimately need to learn to thrive both successfully and happily.
This book took my understanding to the next level... Where 48 laws of power left off Mastery, pick up and brought it home!!! Excellent
The book tells very interesting stories of people with great accomplishments. It was nice to hear about Einstein, Goethe and other less famous masters. Nevertheless, I think Greene, when trying to explain the path to mastery, uses a tone too incisive and he takes too long to explain some points, emphasizing the role of passion. I prefer "So good they can't ignore you" from Cal Newport, as it is less dense and more focused in the path to mastery.
Author has some good insight and recounts the stories of interesting individuals that aren't super mailstream. But he recounts these same stories multiple times each throughout the book. As if he copied and pasted them into different chapter. So you cover the same ground multiple times and it gets tiresome.
Repetition of the same stories told over and over again. Could have done a better job incorporating different people and situations
hooked from the jump. filled with eye opening, jaw dropping, self evident truths that anyone can live by if they make the concious choice to do so and drastically improve themselves and create their future today.
