Building upon his international bestsellers The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction and The 33 Strategies of War, Mastery is the culmination of decades of research by Greene into the most powerful people who have ever lived.

Robert is offering exclusive additional material to those who pre-order copies of the book before 1 November – including a supplementary e-book, 6 Keys to Mastery, a live 90—minute Webinar Q&A, and an extended blog post on how the author used Zen meditation and endurance-based exercise to meet the incredibly tight deadline of the book.

Robert Greene says: ‘In early 2007, I had an epiphany. For the previous eleven years I had immersed myself in a study of the most powerful people in history. I had read one biography after another about great political figures, strategists, scientists, artists, and inventors. And on that particular day, as I was reviewing some old material, it finally struck me: all of these people—no matter their field, culture, or moment in history—followed more or less the same pattern or pathway to power.

‘The result of that epiphany is Mastery.’
