Review

"'In The 50th Law the combined expertise of rapper 50 Cent and author Robert Greene promises to teach readers to get rid of their fear, and succeed' (Bookseller & Publisher) 'Invaluable business law... it is almost frightening to think of the amount of leonine stone-walling that will be going on in boardrooms once this volume hits the shelves' (Financial Times) 'An Art of War - style book of tough-guy maxims to live by' (David Smyth, Evening Standard) 'An entertaining analysis of the mechanics of individualistic power... 50 Cent's story is well known, but seen through the psychologist's prism this tale of a thirst for business power and money makes compelling reading. Book of the Month - 8/10' (BA Business Life)" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smarter than I ever could have hoped. Amazing. May 25 2011
Format:Imitation Leather
After reading Fearless by Max Lucado, a deeply religious book about conquering fears, I was disappointed. Surely, I thought, there must be dozens of great books on Conquering Fear, based on hard evidence and life experience, not just scriptures. Then I remembered seeing 50 Cent and Robert Greene on CNBC.

Whatever is true or false about 50 Cent's reputation, he must know a thing or two about fear. And for anyone familiar with Robert Greene (48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction etc), he certainly lent a massive amount of credibility to the research side of this book. Years ago, I devoured The 48 Laws, but I had no idea what I was in for with the 50th. It's the story of how 50 Cent (née Curtis Jackson, from Queens, New York) was forced, at a very early age, to let go of his grasp on mortality, get smarter, get strategic, and maneuver his way out of a dangerous area, and a dangerous lifestyle. He wouldn't be able to do that with his everyday fears, and everyday attitudes, so he had to let them go.

Like all Robert Greene books, I'm warning you now, about 20 pages in you may feel as if the very ghost of Macchiaveli is right beside you on the couch. With each page, 50 reveals not just his business plans, but his personal plans for escaping the vicious cycle of a drug dealing huslter. He planned everything meticulously. He used his strengths to his advantage, and his weaknesses, he turned against his enemies. He became an invisible man when he needed to, a monster when he had to, and a charmer when he could.

To his surprise, as soon as he escaped the dope game, he found a newer, more plush ghetto to escape from: being an artist with a record deal.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Guide To Being Fearless Nov. 5 2009
By Patrick Sullivan TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The main reason I purchased this book, was my enjoyment of Robert Greene`s other books. The 48 Laws Of Power, and War, these were two books I really enjoyed.
The 50th Law is a list of guidelines, in the pursuit of living a fearless life. Greene joins together with rapper 50 Cent, to present a story of life without fear. The rapper 50 Cent, was raised in an inner city American ghetto. He became a crack cocaine dealer, and also served time in prison. Despite all these living hardships, 50 Cent goes on to create a music and business empire. Greene details his rise to money and power. Greene outlines how having a fearless attitude, enabled 50 Cent to rise to fame and fortune. Greene also gives other historic examples, of people living with a fearless attitude. These are lessons in life that anyone can use.
I would also stress, that a reader does not require a prior knowledge of the hip hop culture. Greene tends to stress the timeless elements of human nature in his books.
I also recommend this book should be looked at, in combination with Greene`s other title, The 48 Laws Of Power.
The only negative to the book, were some repetitive issues. Many of 50 Cents youthful life events, seem to be repeated at the start of several chapters.

4.0 out of 5 stars In da club Aug. 15 2014
Format:Imitation Leather|Verified Purchase
Interesting read about 50cent's way of going about his business and how he struggled and overcame the obstacles. A bit redundant at times.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad.. Jan. 21 2011
By Baron
Format:Imitation Leather
I love Robert Greene and found him detailing 50's rise to power as interesting but ultimately I think he was forcing his literary style too much in order to make it fit with 50's framework. Not a bad read if you love Robert Green's other books though.
