To say that Robert Greene is a successful author would be a bit like saying that the sky is blue. His books The Art of Seduction, 48 Laws of Power, and The 50th Law have all become bestsellers. I jokingly refer to him as the James Cameron of publishing because he disappears for a few years at a time - then releases an absolute masterpiece. I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy his new book Mastery.
