    The eagerly anticipated new book from the author of the best-selling The 48 Laws of Power

    What did Charles Darwin, middling schoolboy and underachieving second son, do to become one of the earliest and greatest naturalists the world has known? What were the similar choices made by Mozart and by Caesar Rodriguez, the U.S. Air Force's last ace fighter pilot? In Mastery, Robert Greene's fifth book, he mines the biographies of great historical figures for clues about gaining control over our own lives and destinies. Picking up where The 48 Laws of Power left off, Greene culls years of research and original interviews to blend historical anecdote and psychological insight, distilling the universal ingredients of the world's masters.

    Temple Grandin, Martha Graham, Henry Ford, Buckminster Fuller - all have lessons to offer about how the love for doing one thing exceptionally well can lead to mastery. Yet the secret, Greene maintains, is already in our heads. Debunking long-held cultural myths, he demonstrates just how we, as humans, are hardwired for achievement and supremacy. Fans of Greene's earlier work and Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers will eagerly devour this canny and erudite explanation of just what it takes to be great.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Greene argues that mastery can come to anyone over time with dedication and application, which literally shape the brain to the task, and he gives frequent bios of famous achievers to underscore his tips and suggestions. Listeners may question his thinking and some of his advice, but Fred Sanders narrates Greene's assertions and arguments with conviction and without overselling, giving them an extra gloss of plausibility and credibility. His reading is clear and well paced. His tone is earnest and slightly intense, with an energetic edge, like that of a coach urging the listener to accomplishment, but controlled, giving an impression of class and intelligence. Greene would make a fine salesman; he and Sanders put the book across, doing their best to inspire the listener." (AudioFile magazine) 

    "Greene’s specialty is analyzing the lives and philosophies of historical figures like Sun Tzu and Napoleon, and extracting from them tips on how to manipulate people and situations - a cutthroat worldview that has earned him a devoted following among a like-minded readership of rappers, drug dealers and corporate executives." (The New York Times)

     "Compelling." (Forbes)

    Mastery can be attained by everybody

    This book suggests that Masters such as Charles Darwin, Leonardo Da Vinci, Wolfgang von Goethe, Mozart, etc were not born as such. They attained Mastery by working on their respective subjects. By long-life specialisations.

    Robert Greene gives the example of learning how to drive a car. In the beginning, you need all your resources for the task. But with PRACTICE, all the information and coordination needed (who is looking from the front, the side, speed, gear etc etc...) goes into a subconscious layer were it all gets done like automatically. And resources get free so we can do other things simultaneously.

    And it is the same with everything: by REPETITION, a once complex task, goes into the automatic (subconscious) layer. This goes on and on, layer by layer, upwards. Until we kind of do not need to think to solve tasks. That is Mastery.

    The book explains wonderfully how LEARNING works.

    The reader is, like in all Robert Greene audiobooks, superb.

    Highly recommended.

    Amazing motivation and tips

    Mastery motivates and explains how hard work is a worthwhile value you should learn.
    It is told through sorties of historical great people who changed the world.
    I didn't expect any motivation from this book but it does it even if you're not looking for it.
    It's surely a read again book.

    Tolles Buch

    Man muss es aber öfter lesen. Es gibt so viele schöne Beispiele, die es einem verdeutlichen, wie wichtig es ist, sich in der heutigen Zeit auch mal Zeit zu lassen.

    Great but eh

    Let me take one thing away first: It's a good book. Great story telling.

    But: The author takes lots of examples from masters of their field, people who are incredible successful. He attributes that to some kind of thing they did, some skill or whatever but leaves out 3 important variables:
    1. Most of them are incredibly fortunate by circumstances. When you have a PhD from Harvard or work at Stanford/MIT, of course you have the network and the surrounding to excel. Not saying that it is given but you have the right environment to become master of your field.
    2. Luck: Luck plays a huge role but is completely left out of any narrative
    3. Survivorship bias: The author brings examples of people who used a technique successfully but forgets that this could be survivorship bias of the technique, not citing how many people could have failed using this

    Very very good and as expected

    Nothing less to be expected from author and narrator on the subject. It could still be going with further insights and examples. Worthwhile every minute and highly recommended. 4,5 Stars from me! Enjoy!
