The Laws of Human Nature

by Robert Greene


"If you had given me the choice of not writing the book and never having this physical problem, I would have chosen writing the book." [Robert Greene]

In The Laws Of Human Nature, Robert Greene lets you in on his stroke and the impact it had on his life, to show you the importance your mind and daily actions have on your health and your life in general.

Greene lives a very healthy, active lifestyle. And yet, he's not fazed by the fact that his stroke happened. All of the author's books have been multi-year projects, which is why he published 'only' six times over the past 20 years. The 48 Laws of Power took three years, so did Mastery, and The Laws Of Human Nature even took six.

Favorite quote

Rationality is the ability to counteract emotional effects, to think instead of to react. It does not come naturally; it is a power we must cultivate, but in doing so we realize our greatest potential.
