    In The 50th Law, hip hop and pop culture icon 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson) joins forces with Robert Greene, best-selling author of The 48 Laws of Power, to write a "bible" for success in life and work based on a single principle: fear nothing. With intimate stories from 50 Cent's life on the streets and in the boardroom as he rose to fame after the release of his album Get Rich or Die Tryin', as well as examples of others who have overcome adversity through understanding and practicing the 50th Law.

    "A Book to be Valued"
    Overall

    This is my first "Robert Greene" book. I would say this is a must read for anyone whom wants a better understanding of what Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent experienced. Honestly, if you grew up through the 80's you'll have a better appreciation for this book. This was the time of the street hustlers for people now who are in their late 30's or early 40's. It will hit home for many as it did for me. Those of use who are "out" of the hood mentally will appreciate being brought back to it within the pages. You won't be disappointed.

    Eric Thomas is rising to national prominence by delivering a high energy message that tells youth through first hand experience how to live up to their full potential and greatness and by breaking the cycles of crime, hopelessness and despair that many face daily. Known for his engagingly personal approach, his messages are both dynamic & inspiring. When coupled with his own cycle-breaking experience, his blunt essays on reality and remarkable ability to reach even the most jaded of minds.

    Would you listen to The Secret to Success again? Why?

    Yes, The "INTENSITY" of his "PASSION" in getting the message across to the reader/listener is uncomparable.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Secret to Success?

    It's never too late - Effort + Energy + 5am + Pain = Reward!


    Any additional comments?

    I've recommended this to my kids, friends and parents. This dude changed my thinking when no one could.

    How did salesforce.com grow from a start up in a rented apartment into the world's fastest growing software company in less than a decade? For the first time, Marc Benioff, the visionary founder, chairman and CEO of salesforce.com, tells how he and his team created and used new business, technology, and philanthropic models tailored to this time of extraordinary change.

    "Concepts to be Understood"
    Overall

    I view this book as a guide for a startup company for those with an entrepreneurial spirit.

    The "plays" in this book dictate corporate responsibility - which lends itself to sway human nature for corporatism. There are a ton a gems in this book, it's inspiring.

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"
    "Great Perspective based upon how you grew up"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book greatly, It answered the question - Is it just that people have all the money and then find a great idea? What's so much different than an "urban" kid vs a "privileged" kid. One part of the equation is exposure.
