Thoughts on Robert Greene?

8 posts in this topic

I was just wondering what anyone's thoughts are on Robert Greene and his insights are on Human Nature. I like how he gives you tools to be more rational (in a good way) and aware in situations. If you are familiar with his work, what are some of your favorite books of his?

He writes books about power games and influence right?

I've never really considered his theories but can see how theyd be fascinating to the right crowd.

Yes, but he also writes a lot about self sabotaging tendencies, particularly in The Laws of Human Nature.

@aurum How are his books overly cynical? He does admit he has a bias towards the darker side of human nature (i.e. The 48 Laws of Power), but he uses historical examples of these principles. It's a great way to examine how not to get fucked over. Additionally, The Laws of Human Nature is all about empathy to unwire our selfish, neurotic tendencies.

I loved Mastery, other ones are mehish, but I don't look at things in an extremist point of view, I just learn from everyone.

Do I have to agree with everything Osho, Wes watson, Tony Robbins, Neville Goddard, Richard Feynman and Alan Watts have to say? NOPE!

I take what is useful, make a note of what I think could be improved or move on. Robert Green is someone who combines history, psychology, philosophy and "self help" (what isn't) in a fun and well put together blend, he is also a unique character, which adds to his vibe. Personally I am a massive fan even though I don't love everything he does, but that's normal for everyone.
