Book Description

Nov. 13 2012
The eagerly anticipated new book from the author of the bestselling 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Guide To Apprenticeship And Mastery Nov. 23 2012
By Patrick Sullivan TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In interest of full disclosure, I am a huge fan of Greene`s other books. Here is a brief outline of Greene`s style of writing. First he spins out a mini-biography. Most of the time, these people will be well known historical figures. On other occasions Greene digs up someone, that is not very well known. Yet they all seem to have, some sort of fascinating life story. Greene then distills the various biographies, and points out some of life`s greatest lessons.

In the case of Mastery, Greene attempts to explain the road map to success in one`s chosen field. He gives detailed accounts, of how people went through the apprentice stage of learning a vocation. Then he explains how these individuals went a step further, and became the masters in their field.

All in all, this was a fantastic read. The reader will find a combination of enjoyable anecdotes, mixed with some first-rate advice on how to live life.

I really enjoyed the book from the beginning. It motivated and reminded me that no one achieves success exclusive of hard work and dedication. Recommended to anyone in any field as the overall process to reach the top is similar.
