Publisher's Summary

The lives of Hannibal and his Roman enemies are the stuff of legend. But these classic stories contain truths with relevance today: The seeds of our successes lie in our failures, and within our successes are the kernels of our failure. Knowing how to recognize these paradoxes will help us to be more effective at work, at school, at home, and with others.
A big new idea book that springs from ancient history, Hannibal and Me explores these exciting ideas by analyzing the experiences of Hannibal and others who made their mark on history. By turns a riveting adventure tale, a compelling human drama, and an insightful guide to understanding behavior, this is essential listening for successful people and for those who seek to transform misfortune into success.

Hannibal and me is a truly inspiring work that I think everyone (particularly young men) should read it will really help you. The book isn't only about Hannibal many famous and historic characters make appearances in the novel each one teaching life lessons that are extremely deep and surprisingly useful. I guess if you had to call this novel anything it would be modern philosophy. Honeslty, whenever my friends and loved ones come to me with some sort of problem or tragedy I give them this book and tell them to read it. I do this because I know by the end they will find the answer they seek. I can't say anough good things about this book it's really amazing and I highly suggest you take some time out to read it.

Entertaining while making you think

I loved the rich historical stories and the many mini biographies from different eras. He looks past the individual accomplishment or defeat to judge success or failure of a person over a lifetime. Like statistics he drew his teachings from these stories while someone else could draw other conclusions. Overall highly recommended audio that looks at your own and famous peoples accomplishments in a different light. Entertaining while making you think.
