    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..."
    "Unleash your repressed dreams and creativity!"

    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a pleasant suprise that the author profiled some people I've been following independently; expounding on their achievements and steps they took to overcome obstacles. Temple Grandin, who is Autistic and the Dr. of Neurology in San Diego that is making amazing discoveries about the brain, and Goethe. But I love how the Author distinguishes the independent strenghts and decisions that contributed to their fulfillment. I have already recommended this book to many people and will listen to it several more times.This book could change your life.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    What does it take to be a Master? Learn how to release your own potential from Others struggles and achievements.


    Any additional comments?

    The author uses the same people as examples in several different chapters, which when reading a book would be less confusing. I just thought I was repeating a chapter but as I listened, his expansion of the story was evident. Just FYI.
