What did you love best about Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun?
I was given this book by a colleague and friend in human resources when I became a leader in an organization that was under performing and in chaos. This was a good primer for me in learning to focus the team to a cause and do so relentlessly. The length of the audiobook made the content easy to consume.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Atilla's defeat in Rome and how he behaved after the failure.

It is a very interesting book trying to explore Attila and his abilities to lead which of course were dismissed and partly abandoned by western historians.
Although a great read with very helpful ideas found in many leadership books the problem I found was the oversimified perspective given on Attila's leadership qualities. The story serves the leadership purposes but its historical basis is weak since it does not take into consideration the fact that at the time, the collapse of the Roman Empire was eminent. Most of the places pillaged by Attila's hordes were not even defended by armies, and therefore was easy to conquer. His talent seems to lie on his ability to convince the tribes to follow him rather than he strategic and leadership qualities described in depth in this book.
