Présentation de l'éditeur

If you want to learn about one of history's greatest military commanders and uncover some of his secrets of drive--drive that enabled him and his small army to first subdue all of Greece and then the mighty Persian Empire--then you want to read this book.

Some people like to think that geniuses are so inherently extraordinary that they navigate their journeys with clairvoyant ease.

This simply isn't true.

Greatness does not come lightly. It requires that you make sacrifices of time, interests, and--sometimes--possessions. The further you move toward greatness, the more greatness demands from you.

But all barriers yield to one mythical quality: drive. The will to persist and overcome. To never give up. To never accept defeat.

Few stories better illustrate this better than the life of one of the most extraordinary warriors the world has even known; a man of legendary ambition, will, and grit: Alexander the Great.

In this book, you'll be taken on a whirlwind journey through Alexander's life and conquests, and not only learn about the successes and mistakes of one of history's greatest conquerors, but also how to awaken a fire in your own life and adventures.

Read this book now and learn lessons from Alexander the Great on why drive is so vital to awakening your inner genius, and learn insights into the real power of purpose, how to defeat the insidious force of "Resistance" that holds us back, and more.

First, the description for this book leads a person to believe it is a biography. It is not. It is a series of motivational speeches punctuated with small bits of Alexander’s most successful moments. It drives home how exceptional the man was without discussing a single failure. It is a lopsided look at the man at best and a misleading attempt to inspire the reader to buy the author’s other self help books. I feel tricked.

This is not a biography of Alexander but some kind of New Age trite. The positive reviews for this book all have the flavor of coming from the same mind as well. Hmmm… conspiracy or fraud?

When I began to read this particular (very short) book, I was under the mistaken impression that it would be a biography (and a laudatory one) about Alexander The Great. I expected it to be a work of biography and that it would try to whitewash his record. While I found that the latter was true, as the author belongs to the school of those who appreciate the truthless drive and ambition of Alexander without paying much attention to his cruelties, showing himself to be a rather immoral or amoral sort of thinker. Instead, I found this book to be on several counts a bit of a misrepresented product, and therefore I feel a duty to discuss the book's contents and the ulterior motove of the author in releasing it so that those who read it do so for the right purposes and not under false pretenses.

Before beginning the actual biographical (or, should I say, nearly hagiographical) discussion of the deeds of Alexander the Great, which reads in terms that one would expect from Plutarch or some other ancient exemplar and not from someone seeking anything remotely close to scholarly fairness in presentation and examination, the book makes its ulterior purposes plain in spending a great deal of time talking about drive as the key to success. Instead of serving as a biographical history, this short work (which passes over a great deal of unsavory aspects of Alexander the Great's deeply immoral and corrupt life and sees people who are driven as being superior to other human beings, a sort of arrogance that is unbecoming and unjustifed) instead serves as a pamplet for a particular worldview and a particular selfish Nietzchean mindset of supermen and ubermensch, with all of the unpleasant implications that entails. If you're looking for a "historical" fable as told by a disciple of Ayn Rand, you will probably like this book. If you do not like that mindset, you will not like this book at all.

As can be expected, this author focuses on those aspects of Alexander The Great's drive that show him at his most praiseworthy, namely his early victories to consolidate his rule over Macedon and his victories over the Persian armies. His later battles after taking Persepolis are given much less attention, and his early death is attributed not to battle wounds and their effects or immoral living, but rather a loss of purpose from being forced to leave his prologned adolescence and adopt the adult responsibilities of ruling over the empire that he had conquered. Since the author of this work has begged for people to provide reviews of his work, possibly in the hopes of driving up sales of the work for which this short e-book is a teaser and a sample (called <em>Awakening Your Inner Genius</em>), I will happily oblige him. For those who wish to encourage their infantile dreams of domination and their contempt for humanity, this work and others like it will suit your fancy. For those who wish for a more godly and truthful approach, this book is lacking in depth, moral acuity, and lasting worth.

As mentioned by others, this is not a book about Alexander the great. The part that was history was ok, but the rest deadly.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Alexander the not so great summary 13 février 2014
Par Michael J. Everhart - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The author does a fair job of summarizing the life of Alexander the Great, but it comes off more as a Zig Ziglar pep talk than a history book.
