Alexander the Great's Art of Strategy: The Timeless Leadership Lessons of History's Greatest Empire Builder

By Bose, Partha Sarathi

He built cities and cultures that still exist today. Perhaps the greatest military strategist, tactician, and ruler in history, Alexander the Great has been an enduring influence on world business and military leaders for thousands of years. Ted Turner keeps a bust of him in his office. General Norman Schwarzkopf credits his brilliant tactical strategies as the inspiration for his troops' approach to Desert Storm, including the Hail Mary flanking move that inflicted the final defeat on Saddam Hussein's Iraqi army. His innovative strategies and winning philosophies (Aristotle was his mentor) are as relevant today as they were in 330 B.C., and Partha Bose presents an intelligent, well-researched examination of Alexander's life, draws out the lessons, and shows how they've been applied in today's business environment.
