Bestselling author Robert Greene combines forces with 50 Cent to help you get ahead
Robert Greene is the author of three international bestsellers. He has been an editor at Esquire and other magazines and has worked as a story developer in Hollywood. 50 Cent is a US hip-hop legend and business mogul. He has released three major label albums, earned 11 Grammy nominations and taken street culture by storm from music and movies to clothing and books.
In laying out the shape of a worldview, the law that a religious tradition incorporates into its fabric comes to represent its ethical code, e.g., the Five Precepts in Buddhism, the Ten Commandments, and Jesus's commandment to love your neighbor as yourself. Danger underlies the law of hip-hop in the hands of 50. Writing with Greene, best-selling author of The 48 Laws of Power, he identifies in each chapter a type of behavior exhibited by prominent historical leaders. Foremost among these attributes is living life without fear. Verdict Written primarily as a guide to successful business practices, this book still manages to capture the essence of a hustler's flow. For anyone interested in how to succeed in business and the game of life.-Joshua Finnell, Denison Univ. Lib., Granville, OH Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Invaluable business law ... it is almost frightening to think of the amount of leonine stone-walling that will be going on in boardrooms once this volume hits the shelves -- Ben Thompson * Financial Times *
An Art of War - style book of tough-guy maxims to live by -- David Smyth * Evening Standard *
An entertaining analysis of the mechanics of individualistic power ... 50 Cent's story is well known, but seen through the psychologist's prism this tale of a thirst for business power and money makes compelling reading.
