    With a few exceptions on confusing information, misspellings, and weird quotes this book is a must read for anyone interested in ancient history I love the comparisons between modern and ancient history battles This gives great frame of reference and understanding for the readers The weird quotes that bothered me was when the author used quotes with words from Shakespearean English, Why Considering that the quotes themselves were translated from ancient Greek, why not just translate these qu With a few exceptions on confusing information, misspellings, and weird quotes this book is a must read for anyone interested in ancient history I love the comparisons between modern and ancient history battles This gives great frame of reference and understanding for the readers The weird quotes that bothered me was when the author used quotes with words from Shakespearean English, Why Considering that the quotes themselves were translated from ancient Greek, why not just translate these quotes into modern English But even with this oddity, I am saying this book is topnotch

    I listened to this as an audiobook my criteria for audiobooks are different from reading I want something that is interesting, that I ll enjoy but doesn t matter if I skip a bit because my concentration wanders I learned a lot from this never thought of Alexander as someone who used engineering to solve many military problems but knowing his Greek education, I should have Never thought of Alexander as the great proponent of multiculturalism that he was but he intended his empire to ble I listened to this as an audiobook my criteria for audiobooks are different from reading I want something that is interesting, that I ll enjoy but doesn t matter if I skip a bit because my concentration wanders I learned a lot from this never thought of Alexander as someone who used engineering to solve many military problems but knowing his Greek education, I should have Never thought of Alexander as the great proponent of multiculturalism that he was but he intended his empire to blend Greek Persian Always wonder what would have happened if he had not died at age 32

    A refreshing look at history s greatest general without all of the PC stuff that infiltrates so much of today s reading material It gets really tiring when an author or documentary, for that matter I m looking at you, National Geographic interprets history using today s standards This is a relatively short read, under 200 pages, that succinctly captures the military genius of a man whose multicultural ideas were far ahead of his time Recommended.

    Listened to book on CD in the car The narrator was good, especially considering there were foreign names and geographical descriptions The book is perfect for military history buff, but got a little too much for me at times Nevertheless, I learned a lot about Alexander.

    It s pretty interesting I recommend it.


  8. Bill Tucker Bill Tucker says:

    I m taking a break from Alexander to focus on a number of library books 7 9 11

    It was a bit too man worhippy for me, but it had some good information and good use and analysis of original and secondary sources.
