The Laws of Human Nature Reviews

    My favorite kind of self-help read. The Robert Greene books are like Plutarch's Lives of famous people for the modern age: each "law" of human nature is demonstrated by an anecdote from history or literature. Not as good as Law of Power or Laws of Seduction, because this is much broade...

    Robert Greene is a great collector of information and a great writer. His snippets of history are interesting and his lessons are also good ones and when you first read it, it feels very insightful. But with just a little reflection, the connection sort of falls apart. The lessons don'...

    The latest book of Robert Greene is bound to become a classic. The author of 48 laws of power, Seduction, Mastery and Power has brought out a near comprehensive study of the human dimensions. These are complex at the same time contradictory and changing as well. The author delves deep ...

    Maybe Greene's whole oeuvre has been an elaborate plot to decrease chaos in the world. He has written some of the most popular apologies for cynicism since Machiavelli, but then his last book was a brilliant manual for competent creative people on how to be productive despite all the u...

    I liked the topic of Human Behavior in this book comparatively better than to the book on power. Both books are insightful. This book had more relatable stories and analogies. ...

    See if you can spot the flaw with this: The law of aggression is universal. Everyone has aggression. Those who don?t admit to their own aggression are frustrated. The frustrated are angry and therefore become aggressive. Obviously, it?s tautological (the conclusion is within the pr...

    I am already a fan of Robert Greene's works, so naturally I had been anticipating the release of this book ever since he announced on Twitter that he was working on a new book on human nature. Laws of Human Nature didn't disappoint! It is an unabashed exposť of one of my favorite subj...

    I don't think I've ever highlighted as much in a book as in this one. It gave me answers to probably 90% of questions concerning humans that I have floating around my mind. ...

    I knew before I read this book that I would love it, because the topic of human nature naturally fascinates me. I knew about 1/3rd of the way through this book that it was going to be a "6/5" - a ranking which surpasses excellence, moving me on a deeper level. I knew 2/3rds of the way ...

    Couldn?t get in to this book. Too many long, drawn out stories. If the author could just get to the point, this book would be half as long. ...

    My fav quotes (not a review): -Page 29 | "In his conception, the human mind has to worship something, has to have its attention directed to something it values above all else. For most people, it is their ego; for some it is their family, their clan, their god, or their nation. For P...

    The select man, the excellent man is urged, by interior necessity, to appeal from himself to some standard beyond himself, superior to himself, whose service he freely accepts. . . . We distinguished the excellent man from the common man by saying that the former is one who makes great...

    By far the best book written by Robert Greene, I didn't know how he would outdo The 33 Strategies of War, but this book is an excellent follow up. It has the ability to tie nicely into the series or is a great stand alone for people that are new to the writing of Mr. Greene. ...

    Pros: a great primer on the psychological tendencies that pull us all in certain directions, mostly to the detriment of our rational goals. Robert Greene identifies 18 such ?laws,? providing historical and biographical sketches that demonstrate each law in practice. He then provide...

    Welcome to the Dark Side. This book is written by a man who lives in a hostile world where every day is a power struggle with other divisive beings like yourself. If you think manipulating with others to get what you want is morally wrong, you are detached from reality? and lazy (yep...

    Reads more like a textbook than a normal book. This book presents a wide scope of certain natural elements that pertain to humans in a universal sense. Greene talks of personality types, neuroses, empathy, narcissism etc. and after explaining these different elements of human nature he...

    This is a book that is meant to be studied. It explores the nuances of human nature in such a way that is very easy to understand, and very multifaceted and deep at the same time. The stories He uses as illustrations are quite memorable and show the lesson very well. He covers stories ...

    So much of discovery is a search for patterns. What links to what? Which variables are related? But patterns aren?t always signs of connection or influence. They can be causal or merely coincidental. And they are seldom universal. Which is exactly why such a high percentage of sci...

    Just hit repeat once you?re finished it. And again. And again. This content is the stuff of life, business, love, etc. Robert Greene will be looked back on hundreds of years from now as one of the great thinkers of our time. ...

    Another great work by one of my favourite authors. Honestly, the book could finished on page 400, what follows is a fascinating narrative told through many seemingly random stories to prove certain points of human nature. Never have I expected to find an elaborate biography of Chekhov ...

    All of Greene?s books I have read & all of his books are somewhere in my top 3-15 all time favourites. The Laws of human nature is no expectation. Greene writes in a humorous, dark intruging way for us to understand human nature & the power dynamics on a under surface level. ...

    Wow, what a masterpiece that almost killed the author. If you have any interest in human nature, this is the go-to book. I love how he uses key social figures as examples of the particular law of human nature being played out. It goes to show the human nature that is embedded in all of...

    Very solid book on the topic. I would call them tendencies instead of strict laws especially because some are not really universal. Also there could have been more evolutionary psychology for there is nothing more fundamental to our nature plus the cognitive biases could have been adde...

    Robert Greene again looks at everything from distance. He mentions a lot of names, so his story can hold to something, but in fact, his research is awful. When he mentions Disney park in Paris, he mentions that the park wasn't a success because people in France "don't like to stay i...

    "If you come across any special trait of meanness or stupidity you must be careful not to let it annoy or distress you, but to look upon it merely as an addition to your knowledge-a new fact to be considered in studying the character of humanity. Your attitude towards it will be that o...

    I've enjoyed Robert Greene's previous books immensely. The 48 Laws of Power was my introduction to the Machiavellian world of power and intrigue. Each page of the book was filled with useful ways to create an aura of power and become a more powerful social creature. His later book, Mas...

    I got mine on the 18th from Chapters Indigo! I was worried they would deliver it late but I got mine before release! I do miss the layout style of his other classic books however I can see this as a move to make them even more timeless. I do sense the typical Hollywood Anti Trump an...
