Hearing Joseph Campbell discuss his theories with joy and humour in his voice provides a deeper understanding than can be gotten just from the text alone.

I feel this book would be five stars with some editing or restructuring. Greene's perspectives on mastery go deeper than standard success habit writing. Linking mastery to social intelligence and primal desire to learn are a couple of fascinating concepts. There are extensive strategies for pursuing mastery with biographical examples demonstrating the concepts of mastery through anecdotal evidence. The book repeats these biographical examples more than once. This repetition doesn't add much to the book and makes key concepts more difficult to pull out rather than easier. A concise section on the strategies followed by another section on the biographical examples would be less repetitive, more usable and make the book at least an hour shorter. I have read all of Greene's books in one form or another though and can highly recommend this one.

I felt engaged throughout this whole book. Each section brings new insights on practice and the value of practicing in the right way. Highlights practice is much more than just the 10000 hours concept.

I finished the audio and said "fantastic", which it is. Neil is truthful and truly walking down the street naked. To hear him share his thoughts and experiences in his own voice adds greater depth to his already wonderful writing.
