The 50th Law (The Modern Machiavellian Robert Greene Book 1) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
The ultimate hustle is to move freely between the street and corporate worlds, to find your flow and never stay locked in the same position. This is a manifesto for how to operate in the twenty-first century, where everything has been turned on its head. Building on the runaway success of Robert Greene's The 48 Laws of Power (almost five million copies sold), the 'modern Machiavelli' teams up with rapper 50 Cent to show how the power game of success can be played to your advantage.
Drawing on the lore of gangsters, hustlers, and hip-hop artists, as well as 50 Cent's business and artistic dealings, the authors present the 'Laws of 50', revealing how to become a master strategist and supreme realist. Success comes from seeking an advantage in each and every encounter, and The 50th Law offers indispensable advice on how to win in business - and in life.

Don’t look at the reviews, they’re left by bums, you will highly appreciate this book if you’re not a snowflake.
If you have read Robert Greene's masterpiece "The 48 Laws of Power", then you have only read about the 'Velvet Glove' part - that book deals with how to change your OUTWARD mannerisms to project power.
On the other hand, this book "The 50th Law" is the 'Iron Hand' part - the psychological 'steel' INSIDE you and how to develop it through utter fearlessness. This is the ACTUAL SOURCE of your power - your mind!
Don't mistake this book as some sort of lecturing motivational piece. If you are starting out a small business or are an entrepreneur, there are all elements to help you deal with a slimy world of indifferent and hostile enemies which you may face in your day to day life, stuff that other so-called business books will skirt altogether.
Truly eye-opening insights into REAL human behaviour. There are techniques of seeing things as they are (Intense Realism), instilling Authority, developing Self-Belief, insights into Connections and Mastery. The case studies provided here are bombastic as well, having examples of much more tougher and resilient individuals who have broken through in the face of life-and-death situations.
I'll go as far as to say that this book is the new "Bhagwad Gita" of this day - great advice for today's Arjunas. Highly recommended as a successor to "48 Laws".
