Overview of “Mastery”




A very brief description of “Mastery”

Through the stories of dozens of highly successful famous people in many different fields, Greene has put together a powerful program teaching us how to achieve mastery in one's life. Mastery can be thought of as the unique way each of us can fully actualize our potential for greatness and enjoy a fulfilling life.





What Greene sets out to do / Purpose of the book

Greene's overarching thesis is to challenge the conventional notion of "genius" as a genetic gift bestowed upon a handful of individuals. He believes "genius" is acquirable, and all masters, regardless of intrinsic ability, go through roughly the same process on their path towards mastery.





The intended audience of the book / Who will benefit most

People who love history



People who love stories of success and accomplishment



People who enjoy having their ass kicked (in a good way)



People who want to become more powerful, more successful and happier



People who want to hear a self-help book that shares truth - not fluff





Who probably WON’T like this book?

People who need to believe that all the great accomplishments in our history were from superhuman “geniuses”...so they don’t have to take responsibility for their own lives



People who want a easy, feel-good self-help book that won’t require them to make any real changes to their lives



Lazy people (seriously, 7 years to get good at something??? BS!)



Creationists





How does this book specifically benefit Men? 

In the modern era, regular men are at a disadvantage because they’re easy to control. If you don’t set yourself apart it’s easy to become manipulated and jerked around by the powerful influence of culture, industry, political groups, media, our employers, our neighbors and even our friends and family. Mastery provides a road map for men to find their individuality. As leaders in our families and our communities it’s critical for Men to know who we are, what we’re passionate about and where we’re going in our lives!





Is this book Easy, Average or Difficult to read? / How long is it?

Easy to read, but NOT easy to implement! Also it’s going to take some time to digest the material in the book. Think about this more like a textbook for a class and less like the traditional self-help book.
