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.<br/><br/>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.

Excellent book

Wow, this was an amazing book! It gave me many insights as to how one can step up to challenges faced in the worst situations and make it a way of life. I definitely need to keep rereading it so that all the points can sink into my brain .

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

One Of Greene's Best

I love Greene's writing, and I gained a new found respect for Curtis Jackson. This book should be listened to by all who care about self-development.

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.

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.

A Fantastic Listen

Wow, I was not expecting this book to challenge my beliefs like it has. An incredible piece of work by the authors which is both thought provoking and challenging.

The most accessible of Robert Greene' books I've read

Perhaps it's the mixing of culturally relatable anecdotes with more historical principles which have made reading this work more immediate the the 48 laws of power or the 33 strategies of war. I have found all of Roberts books massively thought provoking and enriching, this one I actively enjoyed reading, I must admit the last couple of chapters are going to take some chewing before I fully digest them. I hope you enjoy reading it too.

Self promotion but interesting nonetheless...

Once you get past the shameless self promotion of 50 cent and the copious amounts of creative hindsight portrayed as foresight; there is actually some really interesting material in this book. The central tenents around being a prisoner to fear is both insightful and interesting. I also liked the way the author brought in other people/historical figures to expand certain points. Would be interesting to those who strive to achieve higher in any walk of life and stretch themselves.

The best of Robert Greenes books

A good story. Much less of the tedious ancient history analogies in The 48 laws of power and The power of seduction. A bit more on 50 Cent would have been good. Regardless an excellent book that I will listen to again.

Awesome but amoral

A lot of great information and motivating truth. I didn't like the amoral view of humanity though. I disagree that all humans are selfish to the core and never to be trusted or relied upon. I think the recommendation to use your friends and never depend on anyone is not a good one, both morally and functionally. In the hood it makes sense things are like that, but that is not good advice in and lot of other areas .. . maybe there are even ways to get out of the hood without screwing people over. I don't know. Worth a read but take with a grain of salt I say.

Good lessons just a bit repetitive

As always a good Robert Green book with useful lessons and applications. Just found it slightly repetitive with context setting in every chapter. Still a good read and would recommend it.
