Napoleon. Machiavelli. 50 Cent. When the rapper read the history-filled self-help books of Robert Greene, he knew that his name belonged alongside the master manipulators of the past. Orphaned at the age of 8 and shot nine times at close range at the beginning of his music career, 50 Cent went on to become one of the highest-paid rappers in the world. His collaboration with Greene, THE 50TH LAW, documents his clever rise to the top.
