    I expected yet another booh-yah you-can-do-it self help book but I was very wrong. This book has a powerful message delivered in a clear and yet subtle way. The narrative style is almost gentle yet the strength of what's being said can hardly be argued with.Leonard states explicitly why Mastery is out of vogue, why we've come to want it even more than ever but have forgotten what it actually is. Advise such as how many years it takes to just become good at something let alone master it might unsettle us at first. We wouldn't be reading this book if we weren't desiring mastery in some respect.Yet it is presented in a way that encourages the reader. Yes, it will take a long time to attain mastery, but he shows why this is the only way and the best way. He reminds us the journey and the destination are non-different and leaves us looking forward to engaging in it.

    Honest, real and so easy to read. I read the whole thing over an italian meal while working away. Are you a dabbler, a hacker or an obsessive? I worked out straight away that I was a dabbler and it has helped informed my thinking about quite a few areas. Very realistic indeed. If you are serious about mastery a good buy.

    Having read "The Way of Aikido" three times, I was eager to read "Mastery", but had to wait for it to come into stock. Having obtained it, I read it twice in fairly quick succession, and can say that it was without doubt worth the wait!Rather than being of the super-enthusiastic change-your-life-in-a-flash genre, this book carefully analyses the steps required to achieve any specific goal, realistically analyses the reasons why goals are so often not achieved, and emphasises the need for long term commitment to learning and practice.I am especially drawn to the author's emphasis on enjoying the journey as much as the destination, and his observation that the most boring thing of all is to be constantly searching for novelty and superficial stimulation.This is a deeply satisfying book, and an excellent companion to "The Way of Aikido".
