The experiences of the Roberto of Greene's Groat'sworth of Wit (1592) are even more palpably the experiences of the author himself, though they are possibly overdrawn—for a born rhetorician exaggerates everything, even his own sins.
Collins has pointed out, Greene, except in the two pamphlets written just before his death, never refers to his having written plays; and before 1592 his contemporaries are equally silent as to his labours as a playwright.
While Greene cannot have thought himself capable of surpassing Marlowe as a tragic poet, he very probably wished to outdo him in " business, " and to equal him in the rant which was sure to bring down at least part of the house.

 Background on Robert Greene   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Greene, in whose literary life the spirit of zealous emulation was a predominant motive, at once started in quest of similar laurels for himself.
Greene proved by his first narrative essay that while clever enough to reproduce any vein betokening originality, he was also himself original enough not to depend altogether upon the whim or fashion of a season.
Moreover, Greene had a sureness of tact which not unfrequently accompanies rapidity of workmanship; and thus while in his eagerness to please his public he followed his exemplars with facile flexibility, he was also too quickwitted to fall into the favourite fault of an imitator and exaggerate their peculiarities.

Greene had taken up the cudgels provided by the Harvey brothers on their intervention in the Marprelate controversy, and made an attack (immediately suppressed) upon Gabriel's father and family in the prose tract A Quip for an Upstart Courtier, or a Quaint Dispute between Velvet Breeches and Cloth Breeches (1592).
In Greene's Never too Late (1590), announced as a "Powder of Experience: sent to all youthfull gentlemen" for their benefit, the hero, Francesco, is in all probability intended for Greene himself, the sequel or second part is, however, pure fiction.

In Part 1, Greene, again paired with "packager" Joost Elffers (Play with Your Food), offers a straight-faced description of the nine types of seductive character, from the "Ideal Lover" to the "Rake." Elffers's contribution comes in the form of numerous quotes by famous contemporary and historical figures tucked into the side margins.
Greene is so serious and his following cultlike, as he hosts and sponsors a website-- seducersworld-- from which I was just recently "banned" due to posting two (2) oppositional posts to his "teachings".
Not surprisingly the author makes it clear that not everyone can be seduced in this way, that you need to find someone who has some large hole in their character ready to be exploited.

 Betty Ford
John Robert Greene traces Betty Ford’s problems and triumphs from her childhood through her husband’s entire political career, including his controversial presidency, which thrust her into an unrelenting media spotlight.
Contrasting the sometimes harsh assessments of historians with the respect in which she continues to be held, Greene examines Betty Ford’s outspoken opinions on abortion and women’s rights and suggests that her views hampered Gerald Ford’s ability to forge a coalition within the GOP and may well have been a factor in his presidential defeat.
Greene concludes that, while Gerald Ford wanted to restore an aura of honesty to the presidency, in many ways it was his wife who accomplished this instead.

In Greene's Groatsworth Of Wit, Robert Greene's imminent demise was announced, and Oxford's new pen-name, William Shakespeare, was introduced in the well known passage:
Disbelief that an embittered Robert Greene was the real author of Groatsworth has been expressed from the moment the tract was printed, as evidenced by the fact that Nashe defended himself against rumours that he was the author in an epistle to the second edition of Pierce Penilesse (1592):

Greene and Elffers have created an heir to Machiavelli's Prince, espousing principles such as, everyone wants more power; emotions, including love, are detrimental; deceit and manipulation are life's paramount tools.
Anyone striving for psychological health will be put off at the start, but the authors counter, saying "honesty is indeed a power strategy," and "genuinely innocent people may still be playing for power." Amoral or immoral, this compendium aims to guide those who embrace power as a ruthless game, and will entertain the rest.
Elffers's layout (he is identified as the co-conceiver and designer in the press release) is stylish, with short epigrams set in red at the margins.
