Announcing…Mastery (with special preorder bonuses for you today)

The time has come to officially announce my fifth book, Mastery.

In early 2007, I had an epiphany. For the previous eleven years I had immersed myself in a study of the most powerful people in history. I had read one biography after another about great political figures, strategists, scientists, artists, and inventors. And on that particular day, as I was reviewing some old material, it finally struck me: all of these people—no matter their field, culture, or moment in history—followed more or less the same pattern or pathway to power.

The result of that epiphany is Mastery. In analyzing stories throughout history, like Darwin’s rise from middling schoolboy to one of the greatest naturalists the world has ever known, Cesar Rodriguez’s journey from a struggling Air Force cadet to a top fighter pilot triumphing in a dogfight with two Iraqi MiGs, and Mozart’s transformation from repressed child prodigy to revolutionary composer, the book distills universal ingredients of the world’s greatest masters. I’m excited to share it with you.

My offer to you:

To make this release special for all the fans that have supported me from The 48 Laws of Power onward, there are some incentives (and thank yous) for you to pick up this book. They consist of supplementary material used to create Mastery, bonus material you can’t get anywhere else and a live Q&A webinar hosted by me. I’d love for this book to be seen by as many people as possible so there are additional incentives to order more than 1 copy. If you choose to order additional copies, the book makes an excellent Christmas present for budding masters.

If you preorder 1 copy of the book ($17) before November 1st, I’ll send you:

-1 expanded Bibliography for all the books consulted in writing Mastery
-1 supplementary ebook, “6 Keys to Mastery”
-The extended 4400 word “Hidden Powers” blog post that details the story of Mastery’s completion, including how I used Zen meditation and endurance-based exercise to meet the incredibly tight deadline of this book.

If you preorder 3 copies of the book (roughly $50) before November 1st, I’ll send you:

-A 1,000+ page document complete with full interview transcripts that take us deeper into the thought processes of all 9 living masters, including Paul Graham, Freddie Roach, and Temple Grandin
-1 supplementary reading guide—similar to the side material included in my previous books—that includes all relevant quotes, marginalia, and notes from Mastery
-1 expanded Bibliography for all the books consulted in writing Mastery
-1 supplementary ebook, “6 Keys to Mastery”
-The extended 4400 word “Hidden Powers” blog post that details the story of Mastery’s completion, including how I used Zen meditation and endurance-based exercise to meet the incredibly tight deadline of this book.

If you preorder 5 copies of the book (roughly $85) before November 1st, I’ll send you:

-90 minute Q&A webinar with me where I’ll answer questions live about Mastery, my previous books, and anything else you’d like to ask
-A 1,000+ page document complete with full interview transcripts that take us deeper into the thought processes of all 9 living masters, including Paul Graham, Freddie Roach, and Temple Grandin
-1 supplementary reading guide—similar to the side material included in my previous books—that includes all relevant quotes, marginalia, and notes from Mastery
-1 expanded Bibliography for all the books consulted in writing Mastery
-1 supplementary ebook, “6 Keys to Mastery”
-The extended 4400 word “Hidden Powers” blog post that details the story of Mastery’s completion, including how I used Zen meditation and endurance-based exercise to meet the incredibly tight deadline of this book.

To recap
Preorder #1 BUY 1 Copy, Get: expanded Bibliography, 6 Keys to Mastery, extended “Hidden Powers” post (cost: $17; total value: $100)
Preorder #2 BUY 3 Copies, Get: full interview transcripts, supplementary Marginalia, 6 Keys to Mastery, extended “Hidden Powers” post (cost: $50 total value: $200)

To get this bonus material, email rgmastery@gmail.com with the subject line “Preorder #1,” “Preorder #2,” or “Preorder #3” (depending on which one you choose) and a screenshot of your Amazon, B&N, or other receipt. If you’ve already pre-ordered and just want to claim your bonus (or combine it with more orders) that’s perfectly fine. Also, I would prefer if you pre-ordered physical books since that is what the bestseller lists count, but I’ll honor the bonuses with ebooks as well. The supplementary pre-order bonuses will all be sent by November 13th. If you are attending the webinar, my assistant will email you to announce the date and time.

You can buy the book from anywhere, including from the following links:
Amazon
Barnes & Noble
Indiebound

If you’d like to share this offer with a friend or would like to help spread the word, I’d be thrilled to have your help.

Thanks,
Robert
