Mastery Paperback – 21 November 2012
Enhance your purchase
Around the globe, people are facing the same problem - that we are born as individuals but are forced to conform to the rules of society if we want to succeed. To see our uniqueness expressed in our achievements, we must first learn the rules - and then how to change them completely.
Charles Darwin began as an underachieving schoolboy, Leonardo da Vinci as an illegitimate outcast. The secret of their eventual greatness lies in a 'rigorous apprenticeship': by paying close and careful attention, they learnt to master the 'hidden codes' which determine ultimate success or failure. Then they rewrote the rules as a reflection of their own individuality, blasting previous patterns of achievement open from within.
Told through Robert Greene's signature blend of historical anecdote and psychological insight and drawing on interviews with world leaders, Mastery builds on the strategies outlined in The 48 Laws of Power to provide a practical guide to greatness - and how to start living by your own rules.

I don't think I'd read another book by the author but I would recommend that everybody choose at least one book wisely. Depending on what you would to gain, Greene can definitely inspire you and his books do offer valuable pockets of knowledge for those interested in historical figures and insight into their characters.
The same concepts and themes are repeated throughout this book as touched upon in his highly regarded '48 Laws of Power'. These being the only two books by Greene I've read. His writing style can sometimes drag on and I was just pushing myself to finish after about half way through. Happy I read this one but not a book I'd read twice.
