Title: Power Ambition Glory
Author: Steve Forbes
Finished: December 16, 2009
Format: Hardback First Edition
Another amazing nonfiction book that parallels the lives of great leaders from the ancient world (ie Alexander) to lives of great leaders today. Each section focuses on a different time period, going though the lives of the leader, his successes and eventual failures, then comparing them to big businesses today and their CEOs.
It was interesting to read the parallels and how present tends to always reflect the past, without even realizing it – how a great leader and suddenly lose everything because he is too wrapped up in the end goal.
Forbes incorporates lessons into the comparisons, hopefully helping future leaders change the course of their business dealings to a more effective and promising outcome.
It was a great and interesting read.
