Now here’s a book I never thought I’d read. “The 50th Law” by 50 cent, yes, the rapper, and author Robert Greene. And interesting piece on personal development.
About the Book: A biographical book of Curtis Jackson, better known by his scene name – 50 cent, describing his journey to success. From ruthless streets to ruthless music industry, where he had to learn not only to go with the flow, but swim against it too, to stay on top of that pulse of relevancy. And with the help of Robert Greene, he tells exactly how he did it.
My Opinion: I don’t really like 50 cent, not his music, not his public persona, that’s why I’m still confused at how I got this book in the first place. Generally this is an interesting book, one of those motivational ones, but with cold leads and prodding, applying classic philosophy and art of war onto the streets of today. As, in a sense, are all Robert Greene books.
This makes for an interesting biography. A 4 out of 5.
