Absolutely loved this book

I absolutely loved this book. Robert Greene always does his research and presents his ideas in a cohesive manner. The book left me wanting read more books on the topic.

Contradictions Galore

The overall theme of the book is good - be fearless. Don't complain about your current situation, accept reality completely and do everything in your power to move forward. Very empowering. I have no issues with the overall central theme.

Where I take exception is when author uses random events from history to bolster a particular point of view. And then uses another random event from history to bolster a contradictory point of view.

He extols the virtue of Napoleon Bonaparte.

The following are literal quotes form the book:

"Napoleon Bonaparte represents a classic fearless type."
"Your goal is to follow the path of Napoleon."
"There are no Alps and no obstacles that can stand in the way of a person without fears."

Ok. I get it. Be bold and fearless like Napleon.

But then, very shortly he cautions against being too rigid:

"A leader can come to power through acts of boldness, but when the times shift and require something more cautious, he generally will continue with his bold approach. He is not strong enough to adapt; he is a prisoner of his fixed nature. What raised him above others then becomes the source of his downfall."

Be bold and fearless. Except when doing so is not such a good idea!

GREAT information HORRIBLE read

The information and stories are GREAT! The reading by Robert Greene however, nor so much. He is so monotoned he becomes a chore to listen to for extended periods. I found myself becoming distracted by wondering when the book chapter or book was going to be over rather than digesting the information.

Great Read!

What did you love best about The 50th Law?

50's story has always been intriguing, had no idea that it was so complicated and perhaps well though out. I can totally see why his success continues. If you're a go getter or someone trying to become that person, this is the book for you.

Definitely one of my favorite books on Audible. Greenes oratory is exceptional, and you can never say his chapters lack no depth.

Exceeded Expectations

This book is a great tool to sharpen your mind and clear out the fog. It is interesting to see the same patterns in another's life experiences but with different subject matter than my own. I used to be stuck in thinking every action I took had to be original in order for me to be great.. but taking templates from others "IS" standing on the shoulders of their knowledge. Thank you Curtis Jackson and thank you Robert Green.

Hustling at it Best!!!!!!

Great book! Easy to read and listen too! If you want to understand the mindset, strategy thinking of a master hustler--50 cent aka Curtis Jackson, this is the book! I have a new found appreciation and respect for those who walked in the shoes of 50 cent after listening to this book. Again, great book to listen too. Would highly recommend it...
