'Machiavelli has a new rival, and Sun-tzu had better watch his back' New York Times The perfect pocketbook gift for the power-hungry - from the modern Machiavelli Robert Greene, international bestselling sensation author of The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction and The 33 Strategies of War. This concise version of the business classic Mastery provides a shortcut to Greene's powerful new tools for achieving greatness. Around the globe, people are facing the same problem - that we are born as individuals but are forced to conform to the rules of society if we want to succeed. To see our uniqueness expressed in our achievements, we must first learn the rules - and then change them completely. Charles Darwin began as an underachieving schoolboy, Leonardo da Vinci as an illegitimate outcast. The secret of their eventual greatness lies in a 'rigorous apprenticeship': they learnt to master the 'hidden codes' which determine ultimate success or failure. Then, they rewrote the rules as a reflection of their own individuality. Told through Robert Greene's signature blend of historical anecdote and psychological insight and drawing on interviews with world leaders, Concise Mastery builds on the strategies outlined in The 48 Laws of Power to provide a practical guide to greatness - and learn how to start living by your own rules.

This book is a tentative effort for Darren to come out of the shadows to share his feelings, beliefs and ideas through his art and poetry with a much larger audience. Much of the poetry in this collection was composed while incarcerated and while somewhat autobiographical, it is refl ective of not only some of his personal struggles, but with the struggles of the downtrodden as well, specifically the descendants of Africans and Native Americans. Identifying with the underdog, his poetry is both politically motivated and spiritually grounded in self-improvement and while sometimes angrily provocative and controversial, his poetry expresses love and hope towards a better future.
