Being a huge fan of Robert Greene and 50 cent I gotta order this one. Last week it finally arrived, and the book was so indulging that it took me only 6 days to finish it.

Every chapter starts with some part of 50 cent’s life. Then followed by Robert Greene analysis of the story.

I don’t wanna write a big review so lets us start.

There are 10 laws mentioned.

1. See things what they are . Don’t give yourself false delusions. Embracing reality, it will liberate you.

2. Don’t rely on anybody. Be self-reliant . A real man never relies on anybody. People rely on him.

3. Turn shit into Sugar. You see an opportunity you grab it. That is all.

4. Keep your momentum going on. Never settle down.

5.Know when to be an asshole. The world isn’t good

6.Lead from the front . They will follow.

7.Know your environment inside-out . It will open treasures.

8. Respect the process, have patience, embrace boredom. The mastery will follow.

9. Push yourself to the limit, let your ego go shatter.

10. Remember death and create a sense of urgency to get your things done

 

 

 

Book Marathon(2019): You, your gf and her ex are just a third body problem in mathematics.A journey of mathematics through real life’s phenomena and patterns.

The joy of X by Steven Strogatz should be a beginner book for anyone who is fond of real mathematics. The book clearly shows what is a normal mathematics book lacks. They lack the soul of Mathematics. Mathematics is the language of the Universe. It is very sad the mathematics they teach in school and university is nowhere close to this Universal Language.

Here are the key points and what I have learned from the book.

1.Starting from the rock How our ancestors started counting

2.The patterns of the number in war and friendship of enemies.

3.How complex numbers come in the mathematical Scene.

4.How the number of workers and the hour problem works.

5.How the fountain’s parabola follows the quadratic equation.

6.How with the ellipse’s geometry help in designing a billiard’s table on which whatever shoot you take it is going to get into the hole.

7. How periodic motion has sin and cos function be it the time of sunrise, the time of sunset.

10.How suddenly the internet’s data boom makes the Statistics the new hero in the town.

Book Marathon 2019: Mastery By Robert Greene Review.

 

This year I started with the Robert green collection with the book called “The Concise Mastery

The book is a great introspection of the people who have marked their presence with their talents, skills, art, and craftsmanship. The book depicts how they reach a state called flow in their work How social environments, personal situations, their habits, motivations affect them.

Here are the key points which I have learned and want to mention.

1. There are three stages of mastery.

  • 1. The Apprentice stage
    2. Creative / Active stage
    3. Mastery

2. Always have a curiosity like a child.

3. Somethings will take the time you have to dedicate yourself to it.

4. Follow a master in the field. Avoid False gods and masters.

5. Don’t run for glamour and fame it will abandon you but your skills won’t.

6. Avoid this if you want to be a master

Envy, Conformism, Rigidity, Self-obsessiveness, laziness, flightiness and passive aggression

7. Speak through your words and actions.

8. Craft the appropriate persona

9. Embrace the reality, Don’t overestimate or underestimate yourself .See yourself as others see you

The book takes you to the journey of different masters and their life so no more spoiling simply pick this book up and I m quite sure you will enjoy the book

I give it 4.5/5 and this book will always be the part of the shelf reminding me of the path to follow.

 

This book can change the way you make decisions (personal, professional, social)

The decision book is a very small and effective book by Mikael Krogerus and Roman Tschäppeler on decisions with a mathematical and logical approach in a very illustrative and graphical manner.

Pros and key points of the book.

1. Putting logic, graphs to the real world problems.

2.having equal contents on the different parts of life personal professional, social.

3. Always be data and reality driven, use memory only for information retrieval without any emotional biases.

4. Put everything on a scale and compare. Life is a number game.

5. Follow the stop rule and 80/20 principle They are tested strategies throughout the planet

6. Sometimes complex things and decisions can be solved by simple mathematics and logic. So follow a mathematical approach. For example, A girlfriend and boyfriend dynamics is a push-pull game and it can be represented via sin and cos function. Your gf, bf and her ex is a third body problem in physics so don’t invest too much emotion on that.

7. Careful about the black swan model (Sometimes experience is a false reality you gotta dig more)

Cons:

The book lacks in elaborative definitions and explanations of few models. I personally think there should be more explanations and mathematical modeling of strategies.

Verdict:

I give 3.5/5. The book is a good read under 200 bucks and introduces yourself to a new way of approaching your decisions. you will make yourself remind of this book whenever you are about to make a decision.
