Loved every minute. So much brilliant advice and wisdom here. Must read. Bookmark notes everywhere!
I wasn't sure what to expect but with Robert Greene and 50 Cent I figured it would be an interesting book.
I started listening to it and found I couldn't stop, intriguing, captivating and worth a listen and worth the purchase.
It explains the struggle of his life ,doesn't mean that a person cannot succeed, just depend on how bad a person wants it, a little luck and no fear.

The road map for the young businessman. I've read a number of books (28 this year) Some of my favorite authors such as Simon Sinek, Malcom Gladwell and Darren Hardy all say similar things as this book. However, this book has a certain "Grit" to it that is not found in those other books.
The compound effect. Both books really stress the importance of habits, work ethic and the ability to develop as a person in order to be successful. In addition, they both focus on steady growth and big results by doing what others won't. What is commonly referred to as the boring stuff. I love it.
50 Cent ... However, he wasn't the most important. He was a focal point of the book. Robert Greene tied it all together though with other examples in history and practical application.
Boring, relentless work ethic is what gets it done. Also the chapter on making $h!T into Sugar was mind blowing. Amazing read just for those two chapters.
The author kept referring back to when 50 got dropped by Columbia. I felt he could have done so much more with his story and also touch on how 50 built his team more. A team is a vital part of any person's professional and personal growth. Overall though, excellent book.
It's about the same for me
To put me first and to move past fear. Most importantly to take back my power. This book opened my eyes to how amazing I am. However first I had to release all of the dangerous dependencies that hinder me. This book is awesome and is for anyone who is ready to face reality and move forward in being who they were called to be.
Nope, just an awesome book.
For those that can read extremely well ("that is not say that I cannot read well"), or who have completed an Evelyn Wood reading course. Would enjoy it as much as I did, by listening to the audio book from Audible.
My favorite character was 50 Cent, the evolution of 50 Cent is amazing. This book would be inspiring, to all that feel they have hit rock bottom. I would ensure they acquire a copy of this book for food of thought, to help pick them up for their future endeavors. I'm passing this book onto youth and adults that I feel would be inspired by his passage.
The time I saved by listening to this book on Audible, from the cradle to the conclusion in 2 days, was sheer delight.
Stay focus on your goals, if you can conceive it, believe it, then it's real.
This books bring to mind something that my wife expressed to me awhile ago, your perception is your reality!
Very beautifully done! If you can relate to the streets. If you are an ex-thug, reformed gangsta, or a old time wangsta that stopped being a phony than this book will lead you to success. Your death is within you already,
Listen to this book, be fearless, and succeed in a way that will make you smile during your last seconds on Earth!

This book resonates with me on a number of levels and does a great job job describing some modern problems that we each face.
I really enjoyed the way Greene engaged with his readers.
Great insight on fear and action.
The final chapter was quite compelling and something all mortals should consider.
I would recommend this to any mortal.
This was based on the audio version.
Will re read
