    What did Charles Darwin, middling schoolboy and underachieving second son, do to become one of the earliest and greatest naturalists the world has known? What were the similar choices made by Mozart and by Caesar Rodriguez, the U.S. Air Force's last ace fighter pilot? In Mastery, Robert Greene's fifth book, he mines the biographies of great historical figures for clues about gaining control over our own lives and destinies. Picking up where The 48 Laws of Power left off, Greene culls years of research and original interviews to blend historical anecdote and psychological insight, distilling the universal ingredients of the world's masters.

    Gare&Sophia says: "Mastery is both a goal and a destination..."
    "must have for anyone wanting true success."

    Where does Mastery rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my favorite Audible book so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This book breaks down the reality of what regular studies are....egular teachers are....regular managers are...regular jobs are..regular results are......then it gives you the option to see what is better and focus on a [ath that will lead you to Mastery. Its a must have!


    Have you listened to any of Fred Sanders’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    the ausio on this book is poor. It is nothing compared to How the win friends and influence people. even when turned all the way up it is hard to hear.. takes away from the Audio purpose truthfully. it is as critical to be produced well as a hit record in a recording studio. Needs re done

    Poverty goes up. Crime goes down. The prison population doubles. Fraud by the rich wipes out 40 percent of the world’s wealth. The rich get massively richer. No one goes to jail. In search of a solution, journalist Matt Taibbi discovered the Divide, the seam in American life where our two most troubling trends - growing wealth inequality and mass incarceration - come together, driven by a dramatic shift in American citizenship: Our basic rights are now determined by our wealth or poverty.

    Michael says: "Capitalism and Democracy Collide"
    "Informative well developed stories"

    Story

    Matt Taibbi writes in the tradition of a news reporter and it is believable, while being very understandable. The book flows as a series of news stories which he backs up with political and historical data.

  • The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

    In the era of colorblindness, it is no longer socially permissible to use race, explicitly, as a justification for discrimination, exclusion, and social contempt. Yet, as legal star Michelle Alexander reveals, today it is perfectly legal to discriminate against convicted criminals in nearly all the ways that it was once legal to discriminate against African Americans.

    Jeremy says: "An essential read. A horrifying reality."
    "The most powerful impact a book has made"

    Writing and research done perfectly. The narrator was just right. Get this book.
