The Laws of Human Nature Reviews

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    must read if you have to interact with... anyone ...

    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...

    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 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 mention that the park wasn't success because people in france "don't like to stay in l...

    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. ...

    Not as good as his other books. May be I have read a lot on this topic, I didn?t find much that I didn?t know already. ? ...

    Overall Impression: Robert Greene, with The Laws of Human Nature, crafted his finest work to date by summarizing the insights he elucidates in his previous books about the inescapable irrationality of human nature and illustrating them with refreshing historical examples gleaned from v...

    Another winner from Greene, who has firmly cemented himself as an expert on human nature. The book is written in a highly enjoyable format. Going through various epochs of history utilizing examples from many public figures from the past and present. In my humble opinion, Greene's b...

    You can improve your life by understanding human nature. Let the sublime motivate you. ...

    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 ...

    If you want to survive, treat this as a textbook and make the best out of it. By the way, this time it?s less machiavelian. :) ...

    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...

    I enjoyed Greene?s recent book, THE LAWS OF HUMAN NATURE (hereinafter, ?LOHN?). I was happy to read his new writing because before the release of this recent work I had only been dwelling on the same contents of his previous books. I became a big fan of Robert Greene after I re...

    Robert Greene doesn't mess around. Glad to see his new book is worth it! Greene teaches us how to detach ourselves from our own emotions and master self-control, how to develop empathy, how to look behind people's masks, how to develop our sense of purpose, understand people's drives...

    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...

    Awaken to the shortness of life by diving into the shadow of the Laws of Human Nature! Nuggets of Truth: Drop any tendencies to judge or moralize Righteous indentation Take another step in your mind You must rediscover the lost authentic parts of yourself The most importan...

    The Laws of Human Nature is insightful to the max. The book describes how humans think and behave, and provides guidance on how to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. It is broad, deep, and super intelligent, and covers everything from rationality to conformity to envy to shortsight...

    Not Robert?s best work. Mostly seems to be a redundant rehashing of his other books, and this one was cringingly difficult to get through - even listening to on Audible (I can?t imagine reading the paperback). Half of this book could have been chopped out and no one would have noti...

    Some interesting stories and if you're not familiar with any of Greene's other work then you might find it interesting. I don't know if it's because now I know what tribe Greene is from, or if this is just more biased than his other works. It's dripping with the implicit propangada ...

    Like every book from Master Greene, you have to read it like a textbook, taking notes reflecting on the meaning deeply and imagining use cases. The book is nothing short of a masterpiece. In the end, I began to feel like it was a continuation of his other books like master Greene was t...

    Awaken to the shortness of life by diving into the shadow of the Laws of Human Nature! Nuggets of Truth: Drop any tendencies to judge or moralize Righteous indentation Take another step in your mind You must rediscover the lost authentic parts of yourself The most importan...

    The Laws of Human Nature is insightful to the max. The book describes how humans think and behave, and provides guidance on how to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. It is broad, deep, and super intelligent, and covers everything from rationality to conformity to envy to shortsight...

    Not Robert?s best work. Mostly seems to be a redundant rehashing of his other books, and this one was cringingly difficult to get through - even listening to on Audible (I can?t imagine reading the paperback). Half of this book could have been chopped out and no one would have noti...

    Some interesting stories and if you're not familiar with any of Greene's other work then you might find it interesting. I don't know if it's because now I know what tribe Greene is from, or if this is just more biased than his other works. It's dripping with the implicit propangada ...

    Like every book from Master Greene, you have to read it like a textbook, taking notes reflecting on the meaning deeply and imagining use cases. The book is nothing short of a masterpiece. In the end, I began to feel like it was a continuation of his other books like master Greene was t...

    The first Robert Greene's book ever finished (by audio version). Vast volume, over 600 pages like his other books, always feels that his books could have shorten, but well, this is his own 'genre' he has ever created. Is this his best one? In other words, which of his books will be sur...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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 mention that the park wasn't success because people in france "don't like to stay in l...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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 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 ...

    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...

    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 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 mention that the park wasn't success because people in france "don't like to stay in l...

    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. ...

    Not as good as his other books. May be I have read a lot on this topic, I didn?t find much that I didn?t know already. ? ...

    Overall Impression: Robert Greene, with The Laws of Human Nature, crafted his finest work to date by summarizing the insights he elucidates in his previous books about the inescapable irrationality of human nature and illustrating them with refreshing historical examples gleaned from v...

    The Laws of Human Nature is insightful to the max. The book describes how humans think and behave, and provides guidance on how to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. It is broad, deep, and super intelligent, and covers everything from rationality to conformity to envy to shortsight...

    Not Robert?s best work. Mostly seems to be a redundant rehashing of his other books, and this one was cringingly difficult to get through - even listening to on Audible (I can?t imagine reading the paperback). Half of this book could have been chopped out and no one would have noti...

    Some interesting stories and if you're not familiar with any of Greene's other work then you might find it interesting. I don't know if it's because now I know what tribe Greene is from, or if this is just more biased than his other works. It's dripping with the implicit propangada ...

    Like every book from Master Greene, you have to read it like a textbook, taking notes reflecting on the meaning deeply and imagining use cases. The book is nothing short of a masterpiece. In the end, I began to feel like it was a continuation of his other books like master Greene was t...

    The first Robert Greene's book ever finished (by audio version). Vast volume, over 600 pages like his other books, always feels that his books could have shorten, but well, this is his own 'genre' he has ever created. Is this his best one? In other words, which of his books will be sur...

    All in all, the book covers the fundamental facets of human nature. Clearly, the book is intended for a larger audience than his previous books; it is different in complexity from the earlier works. It also seems that it was edited by someone else, who simplified the writing style and ...

    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...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    must read if you have to interact with... anyone ...

    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...

    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 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 mention that the park wasn't success because people in france "don't like to stay in l...

    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. ...

    Not as good as his other books. May be I have read a lot on this topic, I didn?t find much that I didn?t know already. ? ...

    Overall Impression: Robert Greene, with The Laws of Human Nature, crafted his finest work to date by summarizing the insights he elucidates in his previous books about the inescapable irrationality of human nature and illustrating them with refreshing historical examples gleaned from v...

    Another winner from Greene, who has firmly cemented himself as an expert on human nature. The book is written in a highly enjoyable format. Going through various epochs of history utilizing examples from many public figures from the past and present. In my humble opinion, Greene's b...

    You can improve your life by understanding human nature. Let the sublime motivate you. ...

    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 ...

    If you want to survive, treat this as a textbook and make the best out of it. By the way, this time it?s less machiavelian. :) ...

    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...

    I enjoyed Greene?s recent book, THE LAWS OF HUMAN NATURE (hereinafter, ?LOHN?). I was happy to read his new writing because before the release of this recent work I had only been dwelling on the same contents of his previous books. I became a big fan of Robert Greene after I re...

    Robert Greene doesn't mess around. Glad to see his new book is worth it! Greene teaches us how to detach ourselves from our own emotions and master self-control, how to develop empathy, how to look behind people's masks, how to develop our sense of purpose, understand people's drives...

    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...

    Awaken to the shortness of life by diving into the shadow of the Laws of Human Nature! Nuggets of Truth: Drop any tendencies to judge or moralize Righteous indentation Take another step in your mind You must rediscover the lost authentic parts of yourself The most importan...

    The Laws of Human Nature is insightful to the max. The book describes how humans think and behave, and provides guidance on how to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. It is broad, deep, and super intelligent, and covers everything from rationality to conformity to envy to shortsight...

    Not Robert?s best work. Mostly seems to be a redundant rehashing of his other books, and this one was cringingly difficult to get through - even listening to on Audible (I can?t imagine reading the paperback). Half of this book could have been chopped out and no one would have noti...

    Some interesting stories and if you're not familiar with any of Greene's other work then you might find it interesting. I don't know if it's because now I know what tribe Greene is from, or if this is just more biased than his other works. It's dripping with the implicit propangada ...

    Like every book from Master Greene, you have to read it like a textbook, taking notes reflecting on the meaning deeply and imagining use cases. The book is nothing short of a masterpiece. In the end, I began to feel like it was a continuation of his other books like master Greene was t...

    The first Robert Greene's book ever finished (by audio version). Vast volume, over 600 pages like his other books, always feels that his books could have shorten, but well, this is his own 'genre' he has ever created. Is this his best one? In other words, which of his books will be sur...

    All in all, the book covers the fundamental facets of human nature. Clearly, the book is intended for a larger audience than his previous books; it is different in complexity from the earlier works. It also seems that it was edited by someone else, who simplified the writing style and ...

    I've been following Robert Greene's work for some time now, and I didn't think he could write a better book than his last one of Mastery, but he did! This book is without doubt the most insightful book I've ever read, both for understanding myself better as well as other people. In ...
