    Story
    "The Fearlessness Approach"
    Any additional comments?

    Having been through twice I have found this to be one of my favourites. This book can be picked up at any point and flows from then on. So does not need to be followed intently. Which was nice as I was listening to it while working on something else. The narration is monotonous but works very well for this type of book.

    The whole concept of fearlessness is not wholly focused on 50 (his whole story is compelling aswell) but looks into many great historical figures and their use of it. From fear of taking what you want, to fearing death, it is all in there. The 50th Law was a hit with me because I could relate to the fearlessness approach. If you do too, then this will help you to push it even further. Also, if you are a fearful type this read may help you to break away that little bit more. Either way, just experiment with it for fun.

    "Get real"

    A reality check of a book, with learning points on dealing with others and the conflicting emotions surrounding our actions and the interpretation of others actions. Well written and well read.

    "Fascinating stuff"

    Okay, I am wondering if maybe I'm being a bit of a sucker here - there are some valid arguments for slating this book - taking itself a bit too seriously, lacking humour, dubious connections to and input from 50 Cent - but nevertheless I found this fascinating. The ideas are so true - people tend to respect those who have no fear and can face people down; it is vital to be able to walk away from any deal you are not happy with; 50 Cent probably really did learn a lot of the "laws of power" on the street, and these are explained well here. The fault is in the slightly jumbled-up-ness of the book - Robert Greene's The 48 Laws of Power is slightly more focused - but given that I have played this through a few times, it rates as one of my favourites.

    "Very good"

    Very good audio book. Greene's voice is at first annoying, but you get used to it the anecdotes, story's and philosophical references really inspire.
    I wish there were more audio books like this

    "Surprisingly good"

    I thought this book was excellent. It is much more concise and direct than Greene's other books (all of which are very good in their own ways). Well written and well read. Worth the time.

    "Great companion piece to Greene's other books"

    Liked the injection of 50cent into Greene's normally academic approach.
    Doesn't glamourise violence but not does it chastise it. J

    Story
    "A cross of self help, inspiration and hip hop!"
    If you could sum up The 50th Law in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring, interesting, truthful


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 50th Law?

    The main bit I loved was how it summed up working for others and "be an owner, not a minion".


    What does Robert Greene bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His dry and slow voice carries he content firmly.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book for anyone wanting to begin an entrepreneurial venture, if you need some motivation or just need to remember why you're doing it, this is the book!

    Story
    "Life changing"
    Would you listen to The 50th Law again? Why?

    I have listened to this Audio book 3 times in the last month whilst commuting to work, it is that good.


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

    This is much like Robert Greene's other work such as 48 Laws of Power, Mastery, etc.
    It has his trademark style that makes history and events pop out and come alive.


    What does Robert Greene bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Robert Greene is a fantastic narrator, his voice and timbre ring in a way that is relaxing to listen to but also commands attention. The way he speaks is much like a benevolent teacher telling you how it is.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hearing about Curtis Jackson's tough upbringing and near death experience. I have a new respect for the man now, even admiration.


    Any additional comments?

    This will open your eyes and mind so make sure to listen without prejudice.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 50th Law?

    I found it all concise and memorable. I loved 50's take on life as a hustler ...

    His gravitas as a writer and 50's originality as an artist and entrepreneur


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Reality is my drug
