The process Mr Leonard describes in this book is straightforward, easy to understand, and even easier to apply - as long as you can learn to love the journey! This will offer you a great insight into your successes, and other results, and show you a clear path to achievement. You'll be able to understand your own behaviors, and those of others, better and be more mindful of them to help yourself and others achieve your goals while enjoying the process (which is the actual goal itself).
A quick warning: this can be a painful read, since we all have times in our lives when we have, and even still will, participate in the patterns Mr Leonard describes as 'Anti-Mastery'. Many have a problem with this part, but it is necessary to accept and come to terms with it, there is no shame in the feedback from past adventures unless you continue to not learn from them, this requires humility and letting go of pretense. If you can manage that you'll be on the path to Mastery sooner than you realize, without even realizing it!
An excellent read in conjunction with Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience (Harper Perennial Modern Classics) or Finding Flow: The Psychology of Engagement with Everyday Life (Masterminds Series) . Mastery describes how to love the path and progress, Flow describes how to stay engaged and progress when on the 'plateaus' that we all encounter along the path of Mastery. Either on their own is incomplete.
George Leonard takes the reader through the 5 steps of mastery:
5. The Edge
In each case, there are practical applications, interesting vignettes, and entertaining reading. The book is darn near a page turner, and that's pretty unusual for a book of this genre.
While perhaps not as well known, or now getting older and less publicized, this is one of the finer books of its type out there. A must read and must own.
Specially in a world of instant gratification, I think this is a must so everyone understand what it really means to achieve success or more than that to enjoy what you do in your life and what it really requires to develop our skills into mastery.
