The main idea of the book, "The 50th Law", is fearlessness. The authors details and conveys how to achieve this through ten chapters each centered around a principle or "law" if you will. 50 Cents life is used as the main template/reference for each principle (and the overarching fearlessness law). However Greene also makes use of other stories throughout history for this purpose as well.
Overall I feel the book delivered on its purpose. It's able to convey it's lessons well through both story and reasoning. Also it's alot shorter and less textbooky than Greenes other books so that's a plus.
Personally the book was inspiring. I of course had been a casual fan of 50 Cents music but I had no idea that behind the scenes was a man who overcame so much and intelligently clawed his way to the top.
As for Greene this was my first book I read by him (well actually I'm reading it and The 48 Laws of Power at the same time). And it was so good that I read through it quickly and went out and bought all of Greenes other books.
Greenes books paint a picture of reality as it is not as some want it to be. They give you the tools to protect yourself and thrive in the world. Honestly I feel like I've been given dynamite or the ten commandments after reading all his books. They are that powerful and good.
So do I recommend this book? Absolutely for yourself and maybe your spouse or kids (so they can survive and thrive too). However I would advise you to not go around blabbing off about what you learned. When so many other people suck it makes it easier for you to stand out. A good magician never reveals their secerets.
If you read this book also at minimum read the 48 Laws of Power. Also check out Greenes other books.
This book can apply to anything you fear. From asking a woman out to your biggest phobias. True freedom and opportunities manifest when you conquer your fears.
I will be doing a more in depth video review on YouTube hopefully this week. If you look up "the 50th law review" I'll be one of the only ones reviewing it. Channel name is tohomonovus.
Last positive comment before I give my only negative is the book is very nice. I carried it around and everyone thought I was reading a bible. It has gold edged pages, a built in book mark and its black imitation leather so it's easy to see the comparison. It emanates power.
My one complaint is how much I heard the same parts of 50 Cents story. His street life is used as a example throughout the book usually at the beggin img of a chapter. It's good implememntation but just repetitive.
