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

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.

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.

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.

Semi- biography with broad appeal

As a fan of 50 Cent, I discovered this book and Mastery. I must say that The 50th Law surprised me in how inspring and educational it is, even as much as Mastery!

Fear not

An excellent book on the insights on fear by Robert Green and 50 cent. A brilliant listen and completely enjoyed.
They go through the causes in fear and how to over come fear from fear in general to fear 8n buisness and fear of death

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 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.

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 .
