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.

Summary: The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene | Condensed Key Points and Analysis
Other Self Help/ Improvement:
Confronted my manager
Confronted my teacher
Confronted 5 ppl at school/work
Confronted a hood customer that was talking disrespectfully
Approached 20+ women
Was bold and told women I don’t want to talk to them anymore ( which made them chase me and actually helped)
And I would go out of my way to act more confident which adds points to my real confidence until I naturally get to that point.
I’m a totally improved version of myself and I feel like I could never go back. I’m still striving for more as I still do have some uncompleted challenges I wanna have full confidence in doing.
This book is amazing but useless if you won’t implement it and step outside your comfort zone

If you have read Robert Greene's masterpiece "The 48 Laws of Power", then you have only read about the 'Velvet Glove' part - that book deals with how to change your OUTWARD mannerisms to project power.
On the other hand, this book "The 50th Law" is the 'Iron Hand' part - the psychological 'steel' INSIDE you and how to develop it through utter fearlessness. This is the ACTUAL SOURCE of your power - your mind!
Don't mistake this book as some sort of lecturing motivational piece. If you are starting out a small business or are an entrepreneur, there are all elements to help you deal with a slimy world of indifferent and hostile enemies which you may face in your day to day life, stuff that other so-called business books will skirt altogether.
Truly eye-opening insights into REAL human behaviour. There are techniques of seeing things as they are (Intense Realism), instilling Authority, developing Self-Belief, insights into Connections and Mastery. The case studies provided here are bombastic as well, having examples of much more tougher and resilient individuals who have broken through in the face of life-and-death situations.
I'll go as far as to say that this book is the new "Bhagwad Gita" of this day - great advice for today's Arjunas. Highly recommended as a successor to "48 Laws".
Don’t look at the reviews, they’re left by bums, you will highly appreciate this book if you’re not a snowflake.
The outside edges had some tatters and a bit of wear and tear, which was fine! I thought, it's second hand and is in working condition. Unfortunately whilst reading the book I find pages like that of above. Very disappointed. Should have been labeled bad working condition if you can't read the pages. Won't be buying from WeBuyBooks again......
Overall - the 50th law is a great book like most of Robert Greene's works
