About the book

An entertaining and enlightening book about Alexander the Great, whose leadership and strategic genius made him one of history's greatest empire builders, and who has since influenced and inspired a great number of people from different fields - business, politics, military. Alexander the Great (356-323BC) is arguably the greatest military strategist, tactician and ruler in world history. He reigned over Greece, conquered the Persians, and marched as far as India. His achievements have influenced and inspired a great number of past and current military, political and business leaders. In business, many of the ideas and concepts associated with decision-making and strategy used today by managers and executives have their origins in Alexander the Great. In this book, Partha Bose provides an engaging examination of Alexander the master strategist and tactician. He looks at the ideas and actions of Alexander - how they were formed and applied - telling a story of a man whose influence was to extend for centuries later. On top of his strategic and tactical acumen, Alexander's sensitivity towards people and cultures, and his ability to motivate others, has made him one of the greatest figures in history whose influence has shaped business and other key contemporary fields.
