I wanted to love this book...but couldn't !! I borrowed this tome after reading favorable reviews on Amazon. Mr. Greene apparently has a "cultish" following, who strongly endorse his every word...me, not so !! According to the author, "Mastery" is apparently achieved through long hours of dedication to one's craft and the more one enjoys said craft the better, to which I say, " no kidding" ! There was nothing in the book that was either prescient nor innovative and frankly, nothing was really interesting. Even the profiles of "masters" as diverse as Da Vinci, Bill Bradley and Freddy Roach, are boring and less informative than need be to support the idea of mastery. If one is looking for places to "improve" oneself or get insight to doing so, I doubt you'll find it here, in fact, try "The Power of Habit".
