This interview between Lewis Howes and Robert Greene is really good. Greene comes across as vulnerable and human and honest, and Howes is open and kind. I just finished Listening to Robert Greene’s book, The 48 Laws of Power, so this was a treat for me. I did not imagine Robert Greene being anything like the person in this conversation.
I highly recommend this video – it’s long but worth it. (I listened/watched in doses, I think it took three days for me to watch the whole thing).
Excerpt from Lewis Howes’ Youtube channel:
“Robert Greene studied at U.C. Berkley, and he received a degree in Classical Studies from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
Robert published his first book, The 48 Laws of Power, at the age of 36 and has since become one of our generation’s most influential writers. He’s responsible for several inventive successes, including The 33 Strategies of War, The 50th Law, Mastery, The Art of Seduction, and his most recent work, The Laws of Human Nature.
His works are widely praised by a variety of sources, including war historians and acclaimed musicians and actors like 50 Cent, Jay-Z, and Will Smith, amongst many others. Several of his books appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. Robert was also featured in the first episode and Episode 713 of The School of Greatness, so please check out those interviews after hearing this one!
Robert also has personal knowledge of what it takes to overcome hardship. In 2018, he suffered a massive stroke, and he’s had a long road to recovery. But Robert refuses to quit, and today he continues to work, write, and enjoying hiking just like he used to!
I am so inspired by this man and his ability to maintain hope even in the wake of tragedy. If you’re ready to learn how to overcome tragedy, create abundance, and embrace failure, join me on Episode 1,024 with Robert Greene!”
Have a great day!
