    Volumes of pages were used in laying out examples of “Mastery”. Less energy was applied toward Advising the reader how to re-direct his own personal circumstances in relation to the many examples of “Mastery” given. That said, I gleaned many helpful and valuable ‘Pearls of Wisdom’ from this book.

    I love reading Robert Greene’s insightful perspective on the human mind. I’ve encounterd Buddhism in 1994 and so much of this book relates to my understanding of the philosophy of Buddhism. In that, the mind fluctuates and is constantly in motion. It is only when we focus and make a determination, and difficult goals, the cerebral cortex gets into high gear and allows it’s 16 billion neurons to move into aligning its neurons to connect and gets us into high gear and fixes problems, comes up with solutions, high-tales us into motion and gets what we want done.
