Interview with Robert Greene


Power. Seduction. War. Three separate topics that invoke strong emotion in many people. However, to author extraordinaire Robert Greene, they are: 1) interrelated where the principles are fluid and really do apply to various facets of everyday life and 2) struggles that can be handled and mastered with intelligence, not emotion.

It is Mr. Greene's emphasis on rationale, flexibility, and honesty in his writing that sets him apart from countless humdrum, politically correct business/self-help writers. His books do not sugarcoat the harsh realities of life; they teach thinking adults how to live life to the fullest. For that, we thank Mr. Greene for making the great classics even greater -- by making their principles graspable and thus applicable in the real world where there exist reversals, twists, and turns.

Robert Greene, 45, was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He has a degree in Classics and can read and speak six languages. Mr. Green lived in Europe for over five years, namely Paris, London, Barcelona, and Rome. He has worked as an editor at various magazines, a translator of French to English, and as a writer in Hollywood.

And of course he has written three significant, best-selling books: The 48 Laws of Power (Viking/Penguin 1998), The Art of Seduction (Viking/Penguin 2001), and The 33 Strategies of War (Viking/Penguin 2006). The 48 Laws of Power has sold close to 800,000 copies in the United States and over 1.5 million worldwide. It has been translated into 19 languages, so far. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
