I am always suspicious of business audiobooks masquerading as history lessons. This one does not always succeed but it does work on many levels. This offers a wonderful introduction to Alexander, the power of Macedonia and complex history of Greece. Time and again you come away amazed at Alexander's insight, skill, courage--and yes, brutality. The strategic lessons ARE valuable, but can they be traced to Alexander? Do they translate to busness settings? Only in the broadest sense. Still, this is well narrated and fascinating history. The author does draw parallels with current business situations which, at the least, add to the richness of this valuable audio selection.

There is no doubt Alexander the Great is one of the most important leaders and strategists and that he had tremendous influence in shaping the world where we live today.
This audio book does a great job of providing a detailed, but always interesting account of his life, accomplishments and legacy. Even though it is audio, the description of the battles and the strategies followed are clear and incredibly interesting.
The author provides a fantastic summary of Alexander's strategy and legacy. The author's commentary about how it relates to corporate strategy is sparse and not very effective. Which makes this a poor book on strategy but a wonderful book on history and the legacy of Alexander the Great. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
