While this isn't my absolute favorite Robert Greene book (that honor is reserved for the Art of Seduction), I could not put Mastery down. And since it's several hundred pages, well, get all your work done before you start it. Mastery is the history of great success--and a guidebook to achieving that greatness for yourself.
@kikischirr Interesting! What is it about Art of Seduction that appeals so much Kiki? It's been on my list for a while but I never got around to it. 48 Laws remains a powerful read for me. I also picked up 50th Law (co-written with 50 cent) in an airport one time and will get around to reading it one day. Started reading Mastery while holidaying in Phuket, Thailand. Not really a nice light holiday read, but sometimes traveling is the only time I have to unplug and sit down to read. I got about 70% of the way through, which is one of my problems with Robert Greene books. Packed full of great stuff, but they are quite massive tombs!
@rossdcurrie completely agreed--they're so fascinating, though! The Art of Seduction was the most 'fun' read for me because, at heart, it's a sillier book than the others. The 48 Laws of Power, for example, gets downright creepy at times.
My favourite book of all time.
