Join us to discuss The 50th Law by Robert Greene and 50 cent
This month we'll be seeing what insights can be gained when renowned psychologist and author Robert Greene meets gangster rapper and entrepreneur 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson).
Is it just a 50 Cent vanity project or does real substance lie behind this unlikely pairing? To have your say come along to Brixton library on the 24th Feb for a lively discussion on street psychology and its relevance to the modern urbanite.
`Astonishing and sometimes poignant... Jackson helps to bring the visceral survival instinct of the New York ghetto to the boardroom.' --Michael Odell, The Times
`It's energised me...50 has a brilliant mind and never lets anything stop his onward business...The 50th Law is very inspiring' --Jasmine Dotiwala, Head of MTV BASE
`If you have a penchant for the "don't mess" ethics of Napoleon, you'll probably love it.' --Rob Sharp, The Independent
'A compelling read' --Evan Davis, BBC Economics Editor
There are some pretty powerful things in there... he manages to turn every situation into a huge positive.' --Lethal Bizzle
The ultimate hustle is to move freely between the street and corporate worlds, to find your flow and never stay locked in the same position. This is a manifesto for how to operate in the 21st century, where everything has been turned on its head. Building on the runaway success of Robert Greene's The 48 Laws of Power (almost half a million copies sold), the "modern Machiavelli" teams up with rapper 50 Cent to show how the power game of success can be played to your advantage. Drawing on the lore of gangsters, hustlers, and hip-hop artists, as well as 50 Cent's business and artistic dealings, the authors present the Laws of 50, revealing how to become a master strategist and supreme realist. Success comes from seeking an advantage in each and every encounter, and The 50th Law offers indispensable advice on how to win in business--and in life.
The session kicks off at 2pm and lasts approximately 2 hours. An agenda with key questions arising from the text will be used to frame the discussion. It's a creative session where everyone is encouraged to contribute and share.
