Inhaltsangabe

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)

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 start for a personal development journey

Fantastic beginning! Well chosen stories to accompany the phylosophies and concepts described. I wish I would have read this book as I was 12 years old but nevertheless this is an excellent book for anyone who cares about playing the long game in life. If your it to win it you must read this.

Time not spent on learning will catch up with you

This books reminds us of the satisfaction that we get by learning new skills. At the beginning it takes effort but it gets increasingly enjoyable.

We are getting used to instant gratification through Facebook, Youtube, Netflix... Understand: all these technological gadgets are made and tested for us to get hooked on them. Do not fall in the trap!
