Course To Success: Everything You Need To Succeed Beyond School focuses on success in business; amateur and professional sports; the military; media and entertainment as well as in relationships. Drawing upon the success stories of hundreds of athletes, entertainers, businesspeople and politicians, the author examines some of the traits required to succeed in life. Presenting the business functions within the four pillars (Freud's division of mind theory; Gestalt psychology; Plato's principle of specialization and the Chinese principle of yin-yang) provides readers with a global perspective for a more fulfilling and rewarding course to success.
"The content is fun. The writing is sharp. It's definitely no textbook, Course to Success is a useful tool for education, socialization and orientation. The bottom line is the valuable knowledge the author has to share. What the man says is useful. That should speak for itself." "I just finished reading your book: Course to Success and I have to say that this is the best book on the subject I've seen! I wish I had it 2 years ago when I started university!"
Relying on the secondary sources that form the foundation of our knowledge of Alexander, The Confessions of Alexander The Great: 33 Lessons in Greatness tells history through the eyes of Alexander The Great. The book breaks from the pack and offers a unique perspective into the short-lived but tumultuous life of the young Macedonian leader.
After an illustrious twelve-year campaign into Ancient Persia, Alexander died one month shy of his thirty-third birthday. As such, The Confessions of Alexander The Great is broken up into thirty-three themes, or lessons, that marked Alexander's greatness. By doing so, readers can apply some of the factors that led to Alexander's greatness to their own lives and challenges.
Cover to cover, the book offers a candid, insightful and honest glimpse into the soul and mind of the greatest military commander of all time and the most important secular figure in history.
"Forget the movie Alexander, for an original look into the life of the legendary conqueror, a better bet is The Confessions of Alexander The Great: 33 Lessons in Greatness (356BC - 323BC). The thoroughly researched, consice and often humorous first-person narrative is divided into 33 chapters - to match the age of Alexander when he died - each providing messages relevant to today." The book was well written, and entertaining. The historical events portrayed were consistent with those described by the most credible ancient authors, such as Diodorus, Curtius, Plutarch, and Arrian. It was amusing to see the representation of Alexander expressing himself using 21st century modes of thought, and also his use of a politician's memory concerning at least one less savory action of his career. Great great book about a great Great man. Thank you ever so much for writing it. Please thank your wife for me for helping you. The first person... GENIUS. I very much enjoyed your book I felt as though I was getting the story directly from Alexander himself and I feel inspired by it and in my own life ready to conquer my known world .I also read it over and over and place it under my pillow at night it helps me sleep better and have some great dreams, this is my Iliad. If you read this book and listen to what the words are telling you, instead of just reading them, to anyone who values Alexander, it seems like he was guiding the author's hand with every word he wrote.
