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.

Well read, discernable, high quality. I listened to the book comfortably at 2.4 speed.
The content itself is a strong mix of Greene's other books with fascinating anecdotes, mini historical lessons, and enterprising language with an acute awareness of Curtis Jackson's rise from a ruthless upbringing and into the realization of his own vision. This path was anything but direct, and the impact is only compounded by the challenges he faced.
The only con, and reason for a list star, is that the retelling of Curtis' most notable life changing event- being shot in the face at close range- is accounted multiple times throughout the book and comes across redundant. Perhaps this was an attempt to maintain a central theme was lost to me with a faster listening pace, though I would have preferred it much less frequently. Still highly recommended, and would have taken off less than a star if possible.
The 50th Law is one of the best books I've ever read. The topics were masterfully framed. The stories will help you transform how you may feel about fear as it relates to business, taking risks, and experiencing life on your terms.
I gained a lot from this book and will be reading it again. I HIGHLY recommend it.
I loved it, it brought so much clarity to reality and dealing with people in many facets and avenues. I could relate to the book on many levels.
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!
I needed to hear right now. This book has ideas that provoke deep thought and give you an inspiring and refreshing take on things. The anecdotes and examples are compelling and bring you into the story, as well as containing practical examples on how to structure your own takeover
Great book! Though repetitive at times, the repetition was necessary to drive key points home. Funny, repetition was one of those key points. Nice mix of teaching, performance and storytelling. I'd recommend it.
I read this book hard copy years ago, read Mastery recently and wanted to hear this book on Auduble. I can now see how this book inspired Mastery because he touched on those subjects a little towards the end of this book.
I love how it uses 50, but not too much 50. He explains how to deal with Passive aggressive people (which helps me at work). I'm probably gonna read (or listen to) this book again.
