Lance Greene's 48 Laws of Twenty-Twenty: 2020 Was a Scorpio in the Age of Aquarius is a self-help book that starts with a curious promise: to share with readers what everyone is talking about online and what they are not talking about — the opportunities. The book opens with a preface and an introduction that acquaints the reader with the author and that succinctly comments on the impact of the Covid-19 experience on millions, the behaviors of millions of people on Social Media, and how the year is a mixed blessing. The book is composed of admonitions, insights, inspirational words, and advice that readers need to be able to act on the lessons of 2020 and seize the opportunities that are constantly growing.

The book covers a variety of topics, including staying safe during the pandemic, developing skills that help in generating income, personal growth, living in the present moment, dieting, freedom from addiction, creating meaningful relationships, and a lot more. Each law is a statement that stands out from the others and that invites the reader to reflect on the crude reality of 2020 and to understand how they are called to transform themselves, grow, and succeed amidst the odds. This book reminds readers of what they tend to take for granted and it contains the message that by focusing on what really matters, we can find our foothold in the midst of the storm. Lance Greene's 48 Laws of Twenty-Twenty will provoke readers to rethink their lives, reconnect with their faith, and be ready to grasp the opportunities that are plentiful. It is insightful and inspiring.

The year 2020 saw a great deal of social unrest and division, whether it was people's views on politics or the COVID 19 virus. Lance Greene's 48 Laws of Twenty-Twenty is a reminder that in God's eyes we are all special and unique, with talents to create an authentic and prosperous life. In a time of such animosity and separation from one another, where we have been conditioned and programmed to feel and behave according to our racial and economic stereotypes, there has never been a better time to evaluate our futures. The key is to reject the propaganda whose aim is to keep you trapped in a cycle of poverty and compliance. It is time to take back responsibility for your future, arm yourself with knowledge, and make intelligent decisions based on the facts and not your emotions. This book's focus is on solutions, opportunities available to you, and life lessons that will give you the tools to empower yourself and regain control.

Lance Greene's 48 Laws of Twenty-Twenty is an enjoyable and interesting read, filled with common sense and valuable information. The author shares his views on a wide range of subjects from politics, relationships, parenting, families, community, education, finances, and business. He also touches on relevant social and economic issues such as COVID, BLM, Antifa, law enforcement, and other social issues that have prevented the African American community from believing in their abilities. The common thread throughout the book is a motivational and spiritual message to use your unique and God-given talents to reach any goal you want. I loved the author's views on victimhood, how to combat racial inequality, and the encouragement to think as an individual. This book is so empowering and insightful and is a must-read for everyone who feels trapped within their social-economic group because they feel their present conditions are what they deserve. This quote from the book was my particular favorite, 'God is breathing in our direction and we accept his blessing. The will of God is for us to prosper and heal and be whole with a life of abundance.' A highly entertaining and educational read.

Lance Greene's 48 Laws of 2020 is a book that proposes a path to success in different areas of life, drawing lessons from the experience of the year of the pandemic. In this book, the author argues that Covid-19 might have marred 2020 but it brought enormous opportunities, which are hardly spoken about, especially through social media. So, in his inimitable style, the author creates a series of laws to abide by if we want to not only understand but take full advantage of the opportunities that have come alongside the pandemic; to wit, personal development, attention to health, spiritual and personal growth, financial opportunities at a time that huge wealth is moved online, and a lot more. Citing some examples from real life and the journey of many successful people, the author shows how readers can develop themselves and be ready to take the bold steps to change their lives forever.

Most of the prose in this book is found in the preface and the introduction, but the rest of the book is composed of inspiring thoughts and facts to ponder—short sentences that inspire, advise, encourage, then motivate readers. Instead of wasting time reading endless posts that often tend to be entirely negative on social media, the author invites readers to look beyond their struggle and discover the light of endless possibilities. The book is written in a lighthearted manner and I enjoyed the way Lance Greene weaves his personal experiences into the work, allowing readers the chance to discover beauty in their own naked, painful, and ugly experience as they deal with the ravages of the pandemic. And it doesn’t cease to be entertaining, thanks to the author’s quirky way of saying things. Lance Greene's 48 Laws of 2020 is a gem, and readers will hear the words they need to find the light to shift their perspective and to transform their experience into one that is healthy and rewarding. If you are looking for the blessing hidden in 2020, you have to read this book. The strength of the book is in its message, which is delivered in alluring simplicity. It contains a wealth of blessings.
