Mastery by Robert Greene

In Mastery (2012), author Robert Greene argues and illustrates that everybody can achieve mastery of a skill or field if they follow the established steps of historical and present-day masters. Based on interviews and studies of some of the best in their respective fields, Greene provides a diverse array of tips and strategies on how to become a master.

  • Anyone who is new to a field or subject
  • Anyone who has just finished school and is thinking about what to do with their life
  • Anyone who has worked in a certain field for a long time and is frustrated because they’re not advancing to a higher level

Robert Greene has a degree in classical studies and claims to have worked in over 80 different jobs. He’s  known for his – sometimes controversial – books on strategy, seduction and power, including the bestsellers The 48 Laws of Power, The 33 Strategies of War, The Art of Seduction and, with rapper 50 Cent, The 50th Law.
