Good narration and good storyline. Overstates theoretical conclusions drawn from his understanding of Darwinian evolution. Offers questionable political advice in working relationships with people seem forced and disingenuous.
I enjoyed the book. it had great info from real life examples. A little bit to long for my taste but I do recommend it.
This is much more a "self-help", "motivational" book than a scientific probing of how mastery is achieved. Although the biographical references are interesting, they merely illustrate one man's opinion of how mastery unfolds. He never tests his theories (if we can call them that) with disconfirming information. Again, if you're hoping for a Tony Robbins pep talk, this may be for you. If you want a more robust, research-supported framework (a la Kahnemen), look elsewhere.
this was an exciting and enlightening book. it codified a lot of things i was already dealing with. the book was very well laid out and organized. the examples were on point.
Widened my perspective enormously, gave me clear direction to follow & confirmed the path Im on! Being a genius is hard, committed & disciplined work: no excuses!
The last five minutes tell us all which mindset we should all have no matter if we ever aquire Mastery or not!
Just read it! One of the best reads ever (Ive also got the book)! I also love the way Greene expresses himself. So there is a lot to be learned!
This book took my understanding to a whole new level. A first read is hardly enough to take it all in. This work now needs to be studied closely to extract all the focus points for mastery.
