Publisher's Summary

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, this deeply inspirational book is perfect for entrepreneurs as well as anyone interested in the extraordinary life of Curtis Jackson.

    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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Surprisingly Good"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The 50th Law to be better than the print version?

    I think so. Robert Greene did an excellent job. 50 cent does the intro to each chapter and although he is not a narrator his voice lends credence to the content.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is less about 50 Cent and more about Stoicism and how 50's life is an example of how we can all approach hardship. Very well done.


    Which character – as performed by 50 Cent and Robert Greene – was your favorite?

    This is a non-fiction story so there were no real characters.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Every hardship can be used to your advantage.


    Any additional comments?

    I was recommended this book by a friend of mine. I initially was surprised, thinking the setup of the book to be a bit contrived. But it is really good, better than many of Robert Greene's other books and on par with Ryan Holliday's recent studies of Stoicism. I enjoyed it very much.
