My most important learning from this book was how to recognize irrationals, how to train myself to deal with them, and how to recognize the narcissist, who are probably the most deadly and common types of humansI have come across in my lifetime. Thank you for your tireless efforts in producing this book. Way to get an excellent narrator after delivering the foreword as well (my feeling brain would not let me stop in fact I earned a badge for getting through a book longer than 10 hours).

Another great book by Robert Greene. I particularly enjoy the narrator as well. His books have had a huge change in my perception of people and in the way I think about my interactions with them. (Seduction, Power, Human Nature) I can’t wait to get started on his book about Mastery.
Very insightful and thorough piece of work. Robert Greene and his team unveil the dark side of human nature objectively, allowing the reader to identify with whatever area of improvement that's needed. I also appreciate that he provides strategies to avoid toxic behaviors in a social group setting. A must read for anyone seeking to advance in their careers and in human interactions as a whole.
this is really a great book at many levels, good narration and a facinating subject. Very well thought out and written. In many ways the author is in a class by himself: the ability to provide Insight from historical events, the use of relevant quotes, the turning of phrases and the sophisticated but not overly acane vocabulary really make the book a fun read full of insight and thought-provoking ideas.
One of the most broad analysis of the nature of the human experience. This books introduces a unique and unobtrusive insight to who we are and why we are. The summation of which grounds our mortal existence to the utter necessity to realize the fullest potential the shortness of life offers. Eye opening and motivating.
I really enjoyed learning so much about different types of people and how to reflect on and improve my own habits. I'll also be applying a lot of this info to raising my son. Great book. Will likely listen again in the future.
