Description du produit

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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 DRIVE AND DETERMINATION 30 août 2015
Par Barbara Mojica - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book is not a biography or carefully researched book about military history. Rather it is a book with a very specific point of view on how to set out to achieve your goals. In fact, the first quarter of the book deals with the theory that the simplest way to defeat obstacles that stand in your way and to systematically accomplish the goals you set for yourself is to be as determined in your drive as Alexander the Great. Patrick’s theory states that if you do this, you will show your bravery and tenacity to your opponents, who will then lose the will to keep fighting you.

The middle section of this book retells the events of Alexander’s campaigns. Patrick consistently presents Alexander in a favorable light, largely discounting other reasons for success or failure. Finally the last third of the book explains what the author calls The Power of Purpose. All of us should learn from Alexander’s journey to greatness that to be successful the reader needs to do the following: strengthen her will by having a clear purpose, put that purpose into motion, and then follow through to reach the goal by never relenting or giving up on it.

This is an interesting theory, if you are looking for inspiration and motivation. On the other hand, if you are expecting to find a book based on meticulous historical research or an accurate portrait of Alexander’s life, this one will not fill your expectations. At approximately fifty pages, it is a short motivational read for young adults and adult readers.

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.

I have to admit, with this book I made the mistake of the old adage and judged a book by it's cover. And, to be fair, it's title.

I went into this expecting a biography of Alexander the Great, the famous warlord and conqueror. That is not at all what I got. Now, had I bothered to read the description on Amazon before simply downloading it for free, I would have known what I was getting into. But I'm not that bright and didn't do any of that.

However, I ended up loving what I got. Some reviewers have described it as a series of motivational speeches. While I wouldn't go quite that far, the focus of the book reads a lot more like self-help than it does biography.

While I love the legacy of Alexander (if you read anything about im it is hard not to appreciate his achievements) this book just barely escapes transitioning from biographical to hagiographical. Alexander had many victories, but he also had significant failures, none of which are discussed. It does, however, explore the relationship between his drive and his success and encourages the reader to emulate that source of motivation.

I normally hate self-help books and dismiss them as fodder for the hopeless and those too weak to help themselves. But this book was different. It would be dishonest to claim it shifted my worldview, but it did prompt some introspection. I consider myself both driven and mildly successful, but this encouraged me to dig a little deeper and keep on trucking.

Depending on who you are, the following statement will be either praise or derision -- the book reminded me a great deal of the work of Ayn Rand. Personally I enjoy her works so I view it as praise, but there are those that would disagree with me.

Despite it being vastly different from what I expected, it was a fantastic read. While I can't give it 5 stars based on the discrepancy between the title and the content, the content stands out as an easy 4 stars.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Written like a self help book 26 juin 2016

This is not a biography! Very few of the pages are dedicated solely to Alexander the Great and his life. The little, that is written about him in the book, is the same information that can be found on Wikipedia.
The majority of this book is written to express the author's opinion on what's needed to excel in life. I rarely ever give a book 1 star - but please, please don't waste your time! It's a joke!
Especially for any intellectual individual who is looking to learn more about Alexander the Great.

Few, if .any men can match the exploits and accomplishments of Alexander of Macedonia, better known as Alexander the Great. After ascending to the throne of Macedonia at age 22, following the assassination of his father Phillip II, Alexander in 10 short years led a back water country to mastery to what at the time was considered most of the know world. The author's writing style and his keen understanding of the historical events of the period coupled with his keen understanding of Alexander's tactics, leadership, motivations, drives, knowledge of the forces opposing him, uncanny ability to maintain battlefield awareness, strength and weakness of his foe, fearlessness and much, much more results in making this one of the very best books I have ever had the pleasure to read. This book is simply put among the very best books I have ever read! It is a must read!!
