    "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.

    "Powerful, this is a MUST Listen ..."

    This audiobook just had a lot of powerful lessons on people and life. Last chapter was very tough to listen to as it spoke on the acceptance of death etc. But all in all I feel like a person more equip to handle the world having listened to this audiobook.

    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.

    "A book that drags on"

    The book had a lot of good ideas, but the book seemed the never end and just kept dragging on and on. I have listened to a lot of audio books much longer than this, but this one seemed to be the longest one that I had listened to. It was not at all entertaining and seemed to repeat itself quite a bit.
    The book did have a lot of good information, but I think they could put in in a little pamphlet, but instead tried to make it into a book and just filled it with a lot of repeat information and short historical stories that was the only part that I enjoyed, but they seemed to be a bit random.

    "Great book was alot better then I initially though"

    Great book expecially if you like 50 music gave me a good understanding of why he makes certain moves and help me understand how important being fearless and getting out of my comfort zone is to achieving my dreams!

    "Okay, but Not Greene's Best"
    What did you like best about The 50th Law? What did you like least?

    I liked some of the ideas about living fearlessly and pursing life goals. I disliked the style of presentation. It needlessly, repeated the same 50 Cent stories over and over again until it almost became nauseating. At least 100 pages could have been cut out of the book if some of the needless repetition was cut.


    If you’ve listened to books by 50 Cent and Robert Greene before, how does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any other books by 50 Cent, but I have listened to nearly all of Robert Greene's books, and this was my least favorite.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by 50 Cent and Robert Greene ?

    I have enjoyed most of Robert Greene's books, so would probably check out others, but likely would not listen to 50th Law again.


    What else would you have wanted to know about 50 Cent and Robert Greene ’s life?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed some of the content in the book, and some of the concepts, but would have enjoyed a much shorter version. Unlike, books such as the 48 Laws of Power that was all solid content, The 50th law repeated itself far too much.
