Book review of ‘Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter’ by Curtis Jackson III aka “50 Cent”. 50 Cent, born Curtis James Jackson III, is an award-winning rapper, entrepreneur, actor, and producer.

Jackson discusses genuine practical self-help advice in plain English. He offers real life, brutal truth examples to illustrate his principles. It is easy to see why the keys to Jackson’s success are hard work, discipline, and smarts.

Here’s the list of Jackson’s principles that he explains in detail in the book:

  • Be Fearless
  • Cultivate the heart of a hustler
  • Build a strong crew
  • Know your value
  • Evolve or die
  • Shape perception
  • Don’t be afraid to compete
  • Learn from your Ls
  • Avoid the entitlement trap

There are many nuggets of advice that are discussed in each of the book chapters. My personal favorite nugget is “… you’ll leave this book with at least one fundamental principle lodged in your brain …”. My fellow DBA colleagues if you cannot find one nugget in this book, you really do need to Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter!

I give the book Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter by Cutis Jackson III aka “50 Cent” a thumbs up! Right?
