A truly great piece of work by Robert Greene! Extensive attention to detail in his work and a listen that will so often leave you thinking ‘I can relate to everything he’s saying’ A perfect dissection of human nature with all it’s flaws and strengths and how you can take any characteristic or law of human nature and educate yourself to adapt or use it to your advantage!

The Greek myths are amongst the greatest stories ever told, passed down through millennia and inspiring writers and artists as varied as Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce and Walt Disney. They are embedded deeply in the traditions, tales and cultural DNA of the West. You'll fall in love with Zeus, marvel at the birth of Athena, wince at Cronus and Gaia's revenge on Ouranos, weep with King Midas and hunt with the beautiful and ferocious Artemis.

I’ve always known of the Greek myths but never gone into them in too much detail. This book provides a great overview of the mythology though. Most definitely worth the purchase and listening time!

For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a US Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events.

I’ve listened to David Goggins on countless podcasts and videos but this book went even deeper. Truly makes you question how you’re living, your potential and encourages you to go out and pursue it. BRILLIANT!
