    Story
    "Excellent addition to the collection!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely recommendable to a friend. The breaks down the intricate fundamentals of true success and illustrates to us why we prevent ourselves from going as far as we can go.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the analogies back to 50 cent's life, but I love the classic Robert Greene incorporation of historic examples such as FDR, Michelangelo, Napoleon, and John F. Kennedy, among others.


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

    I haven't listened to any of Robert Greene's other performances but I have read The 48 Laws of Power. Not a bad performance at all, but I have heard better. Not a hindrance though, still a good listen.


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

    I will definitely move forward with the fact that there is no such thing as a shortcut and it makes much more sense to focus on a few things and mastering those things instead of looking for the next "best" thing.

    Story
    "Success Magnified the 50 way."

    The story exaggerates the life and uprising of 50 cent in a good way. Hines sight is always 20 20 and Greene does a great job painting 50 into the history books as a never fallible business icon. Greene's background is in history and war so he understands how to write a cronical that will be used as reference 100 years from now. "When you create the history you can make it perfect." The advice and knowledge in the book is very entertaining and Greene does a fantastic job narrating the story. If you are interested in history, success, and a great story this book is for you.

    Story
    "Would have been nice to have more 50"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The 50th Law to be better than the print version?

    It would have been nice to have more 50 cent pieces. Hearing his voice from time to time really brought it home... he probably had less than 30 minutes all up. But it was a fantastic piece of work. Great structured, quality insight, and well narrated.


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

    Not enough. There should have been more 50 Cent talking.


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

    Nope. Too long... and it was nice to think about the different chapters. Give it time to sink in.

    Story
    "An urban take on classic scenarios"
    What did you love best about The 50th Law?

    I give this book high marks because it hits on classic lessons that have been told for years with a sometimes gritty urban take. For a city slicker who grew up as a Gen X'r, I really got the concepts with the modern examples. There are many ways to tell this tale and in listening to this book, I clearly see that this is another marketing strategy for Mr. Jackson. I can also see how he got to where he is today. Not at all what I expected in a "Rapper". Each move in his career is extremely well thought out and executed with the ferocity of a man with no fear and surgical accuracy. "Vitamin Water"...? Nobody saw that one coming. BRAVO!


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

    48 Laws of Power

    Story
    "Insightful Instructional Inspiring *MUST OWN*"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The 50th Law to be better than the print version?

    Me personally, I buy the audiobook first. If the audio is good enough, I then go and buy the book. Which I intend to do this weekend.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    50... no BS, I would not have considered myself a 50 fan prior to this audiobook.


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

    The contrast of 50 cent and Robert Greene's collaboration on the book was great. I felt that if 50 could get someone who was from essentially another planet such as Robert Greene to understand and have the ability to infuse his book knowledge of power with 50 cent's street power was to me amazing and absorbable to me. Great job!


    What did you learn from The 50th Law that you would use in your daily life?

    Too much to list actually. What really hit home with me though... was the imagining of being so close to death and then being able to cheat it. The sublime. Learning how to to die so that inturn you learn how to live. Aggression tactics that are used in Corp America and Street Corners and how to maneuver actions for gain. Using what you learned on the streets in business! Having that sense of urgency when you accept the one thing you are promised... Death.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this audiobook! Listen to the entire thing before you judge it. You will not be disappointed.

    "The 50th Law"

    Enjoyed this book. Some chapters seemed to repeat about 50cents and his music career and hardships but overall I enjoyed it. On a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being great.) I give it an 8.

    "Carry's on..."

    The book is really good, unexpected, and inspirational, but it tends to carry on with examples, i believe it was the third chapter he provided at least 19 different examples on turning your negatives into positives, i soon found myself pushing through them to get to the end. If there is a abridged version of this book, thats the one i recommend.

    "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.

    "not very good at all"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Seemed like a knockoff version of the 48 laws of power. I really didn't care for the small stories he used to fill in the space of the laws. It was a street law mentality compared to his first version.


    What was most disappointing about 50 Cent and Robert Greene ’s story?

    Seemed to flaky not enough substance.


    What didn’t you like about 50 Cent and Robert Greene ’s performance?

    Thought I would gain more knowledge from this book. There was nothing to gain. Especially if you read the 48 laws of power.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. It stole hours of my life that I will never get back!
