    Story
    "What an Interesting Concept"
    What did you love best about The 50th Law?

    This book was unexpectedly deep. The last chapter has to do with confronting our own mortality. This book aimed to unlock fears we all have and allow us to unleash our success by getting rid of them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 50th Law?

    Did I mention this book is deep. It's not something you can ingest in 1 or 2 days. This will take a while to sink in and be digested.


    Did 50 Cent and Robert Greene do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Ha! Well, um, yes. It was very easy to differentiate Robert Greene from Curtis Jackson.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The 50th Law?

    I really should spend time thinking about life, death, and all the things I need to do now and now wait until it's too late. What is the worst that could happen? What IF I lost it all, and had to get it back? Would I work even harder if I had nothing to lose?


    Any additional comments?

    I was expecting this to be more about 50 Cent. This book is NOT really about 50 cent. He makes a few cameo appearances here and there, but basically it's only tangentially related to him.

    "Stop letting authors read their books!"

    While I really liked Robert Greene's older books on Audible this one was just a horrible listen. When authors read their own works it's almost always monotonous and slow. Neil Gaiman is about the only exception to the rule. So this book was a terrible listen and I couldn't get through it. Even though the book itself was fairly good and I'll probably get it on my Kindle instead I have to say skip it on Audible and buy the actual book instead.

    Story
    "Makes 'The Secret' seem like a fairytale"
    If you could sum up The 50th Law in three words, what would they be?

    Sublime
    Evidence based
    Manditory


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 50th Law?

    The turning point for me was something that I am currently benefiting from. The POWER OF PROCESS. One quote that I remember roughly said, "The cause of all man's problems are due to his inability to sit alone, in a room, for many hours." This "druge-work" is a powerful duty we all have in anything that we may be trying to get better at. It is these long a repetitive tasks that makes us sharpen our sword for wielding in a world full of unmasterful types. You will stick out if you stick to it!!


    Have you listened to any of 50 Cent and Robert Greene ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't yet.. I plan on listening to this over and over and then moving on to Robert's previous work on the 48 Laws of Power. I'm not sure if the book or the audio will be better for that though.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The 50th Law?

    This is not merely a take this or that and try and apply it. It is a feet first deep end dive to the truth of what we really want. This is OWNERSHIP! Salvery seems so taboo but it is real even today! We are decided for without thinking from businesses left and right and we can not eve make our own decisions! WE ARE UNTRAINED in our confidence of self relience. Like a cat that will die in the wild if he does not grow up there. Are we living?..Or are we just merely surviving?


    Any additional comments?

    You must change your mind before you can change your actions. This is not pop-tarts folks. This is wild bison meat you just killed yesterday. Learn to provide for yourself! Wake up or die.

    "Great advice I wish I had years ago ..."

    I've read a lot of self-help, motivational, business books over the years, and this book finally speaks to me with obvious actions to take and basically states, bluntly, if you don't do these things, you fail. No fancy words or systems, just basic things that one should do to be successful.

    I also bought the paper copy of the book, as there are a lot of actions to take, and it's helpful to review them on a weekly basis. I am convinced if one does these things, one will get where they want to go.

    The only minor criticism is that the reading lacks enthusiasm and is almost monotone. Maybe this is on purpose (see chapter 8) ...

    Story
    "Absolutely Priceless Content"
    What made the experience of listening to The 50th Law the most enjoyable?

    The content. You can tell the authors wrote this with passion, and only truth, there's no fluff in here. Although some of the content moves along slowly, I still wanted to replay it because I so thoroughly enjoyed the content, and wanted to have a better understanding of it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 50th Law?

    This book teaches the same principles as Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Poor Dad. How to understand deeper truths of life, and to not fall into the pitfalls of mental and economic slavery, mentally and physically. This is for anybody of any socio-economic status, whether you work in the board room or on the streets. .


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have liked to, but the book is quite long, and the information is quite complex. You have to allow yourself time to reflect upon, and personally connect with the content when done listening to it.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best self-help books of all time. Great, priceless clarity offered in this book.

    "I am now aware of the triviality of normalcy."
    What made the experience of listening to The 50th Law the most enjoyable?

    Excellent narration by Robert Greene and 50 Cent


    What other book might you compare The 50th Law to and why?

    This book compares in fundamental philosophy to Mastery, by Robert Greene. It provokes the realization of what is holding you back from doing what you want in life, and then realizing how trivial and utterly nonsensical those restraints are in your life. Simply by realizing this, you are now practically on the course to mastering your life.


    What does 50 Cent and Robert Greene bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The intimacy of hearing the voices of both 50 Cent and Robert Greene brings a whole new level to reading.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    This book, and the other works of Robert Greene have literally changed my perspective on myself and of life in general.

    "WOW!"
    What did you love best about The 50th Law?

    50's story is incredible. How he continues to reinvent himself is inspiring!


    What does 50 Cent and Robert Greene bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hearing the contrast in voices is great especially with 50 actually reading his quotes at the bringing of each chapter.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It helped motivate me to re-brand my business and to grow and change in my environment and not become complaisant.
