The Laws of Human Nature – Robert Greene : 575

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, one of my favorite authors is back on the show.

Robert Greene has written five New York Times bestsellers. One in particular, The 48 Laws of Power, changed the course of my professional life. His other books, including: The Art of SeductionThe 33 Strategies of WarThe 50th Law, and Mastery, have gained a gained a broad following from war historians to hip-hop industry musicians.

Robert takes a deep and searing look at the inner workings of human behavior based on social and biological science, as well as many of the most powerful people throughout history. In his sixth and most recent book, The Laws of Human Nature, he focuses on people’s drives and motivations, even when they are unconscious of them. “Basically, we’re a social animal,” Robert says. “It’s deeply ingrained in our nature. When we’re not being the social animal that we were born to be, we pay a terrible price.”

This is a must-listen episode full of evocative human insights—you’ll learn the basis of envy and why it persists in social hierarchy. “Envy is complicated and it's slippery and it's hard to put your finger on it,” Robert says.

We also discuss early childhood as an underestimated developmental force; how gender rigidity limits your full potential; and the ways in which mortality awareness can be both comforting and freeing.
