Mastery SummaryMyths About Genius and What It Really Means To Be Great

You do not need superhuman intelligence and talent to reach “Mastery.”

All you need is devotion and patience while following a specific set of already established steps.

Who Should Read “Mastery”? And Why?

“Mastery” aims to dispel some of the most common and prevalent beliefs which may hinder a man’s development and rise.

If you believe that you are unable to achieve greatness due to an inherent lack of talent – then this book is the one you should read. It will teach you that mastery is almost an antonym to talent and that all those years you felt frustrated due to not advancing owe nothing to lack of qualities but all to lack of discipline and proper planning.

Needless to add, novices who have never even walked this path are even more advised to add “Mastery” to their must-read lists. The same holds true for anyone who knows not what to do with his or her life – and believes that his best years for learning are behind him/her.

Regardless of whether he/she has just left high school or is in a middle-life crisis.

About Robert Greene

Robert GreeneRobert Greene is a famous and widely admired American author. The younger son of Jewish parents, he earned a degree in classical studies from the University of Wisconsin and worked at least 80 different jobs before becoming a successful writer

He is mostly interested in topics related to power, seduction, strategy, and dominance. Unsurprisingly, his debut book, “The 48 Laws of Power,” was very popular with rappers, athletes, and other celebrities, and sold more than a million copies

He followed this success with another controversial title, “The Art of Seduction,” which – according to Neil Strauss’ “The Game” – enjoys a cult status in the seduction community.

The 33 Strategies of War” earned Greene the not-so-flattering title “a modern-day Machiavelli,” and his popularity resulted in “The 50th Law,” a book he co-wrote with none other than 50 Cent.

“Mastery Summary”

Contrary to what you may believe, the extraordinary accomplishments of many great names you have heard about, are not a result of inborn talent.

In fact, there is no proof that talent and mastery are linked in any way.

In other words, one does not need an extremely high IQ to be a master. Mastery does not stream from talent.
