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.

Very much like some other books of Robert Green that I have read (48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction), Mastery is of enormous pleasure to read, with highly organized and fascinating historical personalities, accounts, examples, references, stories and anecdotes, mixed with a high density of stylized explanation, reasoning, practical knowledge, personal insights and strategies to absorb. It is indeed life-changing, and very much worth passing to your next generation.

The writing is strong, skillful, to-the-point and in all just extraordinary. Mr Greene can really build momentum with his writing, accelerate readers' thoughts, taking you smoothly around hard corners, weave a web of interconnected ideas with perfect reasoning, and get the to finish line with ruthless accuracy and amazing style. No sentence is meaningless, no punctuation is wasted, and every word serves a purpose.

It is indeed the Formula 1 Grand Prix for the mind. It is the self expression of Mastery itself. If you really enjoy the style of his writing, many other nonfiction books will begin to taste plain, and feel like a lengthy, sleepy and bumpy bus ride with a tad too many stops and detours. If you are looking for a rather rigorous, methodological, loving and gentle guidance, well, this isn't it either - like explained in the book, there is no shortcuts, no fixed ways you can blindly follow, you always need to admit to discipline, take a step back and observe and analyze yourself in the microscope with the most harsh and critical perspective, along the way also open up your dimensional mind, immerse yourself in others, and be ready to (re)discover the world, the players in it, and yourself, with a more human heart.

This book is awesome and, when I read it, I feel inspired to work hard on my dreams and become a master. My ultimate goa in life is to make it into Hollywood and become the worlds greatest film director, and I know that this book will help me do just that.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. I love how Robert writes (different than the norm). When I read his books all I think is how articulate, imaginative and creative he is.

Mastery is quite motivating. As an artist i found "Mastery" to be very refreshing with all the self reflection it calls upon you to do.
