    From the Publisher
    We are born masters but sometimes especially during the trials of adulthood we need external guidance to reach our potential says bestselling author Greene the 48 laws of power. His description of mastery is reminiscent of what positive psychologists describe as flow  a state that feels effortless once achieved. Yet mastery requires work. Greene outlines the process in nearly 50 steps  with several overarching themes  retaining a child's sense of wonder  learning from other masters  and avoiding financially motivated goals. The steps are interspersed with the stories of people who have famously achieved success  the wright brothers Benjamin Franklin Thomas Edison  mozart temple grandin  and many more. Relatively few of these examples are contemporary  which poses the question of whether such mastery is possible in our current economic and profit driven environment. And 48 steps are a little much for even the mastery oriented mind  and Greene's presentation is disjointed and occasionally confusing. But what this book lacks in clarity it makes up for in its stories and persistent encouragement the inspiration that is essential for anybody who strives to live a full mastered life.

    Library Journal

    Greene the 33 strategies of war 2007 etc  believes that genius can be learned if we pay attention and reject social conformity. The author suggests that our emergence as a species with stereoscopic frontal vision and sophisticated hand eye coordination gave us an advantage over earlier humans and primates because it allowed us to contemplate a situation and ponder alternatives for action. This along with the advantages conferred by mirror neurons which allow us to intuit what others may be thinking contributed to our ability to learn  pass on inventions to future generations and improve our problem solving ability. Throughout most of human history  we were hunter gatherers and our brains are engineered accordingly. The author has a jaundiced view of our modern technological society which he writes encourages quick rash judgments. We fail to spend the time needed to develop thorough mastery of a subject. Greene writes that every human is  born unique  with specific potential that we can develop if we listen to our inner voice. He offers many interesting but tendentious examples to illustrate his theory including Einstein Darwin Mozart and Temple Grandin. In the case of darwin greene ignores the formative intellectual influences that shaped his thought including the discovery of geological evolution with which he was familiar before his famous voyage. The author uses Grandin's struggle to overcome autistic social handicaps as a model for the necessity for everyone to create a deceptive social mask.Readers unfamiliar with the anecdotal material Greene presents may find interesting avenues to pursue but they should beware of the author's quirky sometimes misleading brush stroke characterizations.
