My guest today is Robert Greene, the bestselling author of the classic book, "The 48 Laws of Power", in addition to other bestsellers such as "The Art of Seduction", "The 33 Strategies of War", and "The 50th Law" with musician and entrepreneur, 50 Cent.

The topic is his book Mastery.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • The influence "The 48 Laws of Power" had on Covel's own writing
  • Using the 48 Laws as a defense strategy rather than as a cutthroat offense
  • Some of Greene's early influences that led him into his writing career
  • Using Zen Buddhism and meditation as a tool to gain perspective and focus
  • The importance of using your unique life experiences in your career to create an irreplaceable style
  • Embracing opportunity
