The 50th law is truly a remarkable book. Firstly, it illustrates philosophical principles through historical examples using such wonderfully plain and simple language; and secondly and very importantly it has the words FEAR NOTHING inscribed in beautiful Gold Gothic Letters on the back of its cover. Basically it had me on hello with its first chapter ‘See things for what they are: Intense Realism.’ and the last chapter in the book, ‘Confront your mortality: The Sublime’ had me bouncing of the ceiling. Like I knew this stuff but now I really knew
it. It is one paradigm shift after anther with this book. I immediately purchased other books of Robert Greene: The 48 laws of Power and The 33 strategies of War. I would have bought The Art of Seduction as well but I had to put on the brakes for now.
