A solid and well thought out book.

Don't be fooled by the rapper/gangster appearance of 50 Cent. He is a very intelligent man. This is a book that does not glorify the unfavorable acts in 50's life but takes an objective stance on the events of his life. The book loosely follows 50's rise to success but mainly focuses on other people from throughout history that have succeeded despite naysayers; Their techniques that Curtis applied and the philosophy behind being fearless yet smart.

Robert Greene does most of the writing in this piece but not without a significant amount of input from Curtis. Input that is well thought out and well versed. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I learned from this book that is packed with psychology and words of wisdom. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to try a new approach to their business strategy and or life in general. I can honestly say that by trying some of the techniques in this book I have seen a significant positive change in my dealings with people both in business and everyday life.

What an Interesting Concept

What did you love best about The 50th Law?

This book was unexpectedly deep. The last chapter has to do with confronting our own mortality. This book aimed to unlock fears we all have and allow us to unleash our success by getting rid of them.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The 50th Law?

Did I mention this book is deep. It's not something you can ingest in 1 or 2 days. This will take a while to sink in and be digested.


Did 50 Cent and Robert Greene do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Ha! Well, um, yes. It was very easy to differentiate Robert Greene from Curtis Jackson.


What insight do you think you’ll apply from The 50th Law?

I really should spend time thinking about life, death, and all the things I need to do now and now wait until it's too late. What is the worst that could happen? What IF I lost it all, and had to get it back? Would I work even harder if I had nothing to lose?


Any additional comments?

I was expecting this to be more about 50 Cent. This book is NOT really about 50 cent. He makes a few cameo appearances here and there, but basically it's only tangentially related to him.
