Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Thousands of books have been written about Julius Caesar, yet even so, writers continue to find new ways to explore the man and his life. In this book, Mr. Axelrod lists six principles of management and leadership, gives examples from Caesar's life that pertain to each principle, and then briefly describes how Caesar's actions directly relate to the modern leader. I found his approach fresh and informative even though I have read hundreds of books about Caesar. This is a perfect example of how persons from different spheres of life can provide new insights into a subject many consider thoroughly explored and the province of a particular speciality. Also, Mr. Axelrod clearly shows that Caesar's life provides concrete and valuable lessons for the modern leader. One word of caution: a number of historical events are treated superficially (e.g., the battle of Alesia and the defeat of Spartacus); therefore, the reader should not view this as a thorough history.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Danny Ocean on August 17, 2012
Format: Hardcover
I saw this book in the business section of a bookstore. The name itself caught my attention along with the artwork. I decided to purchase the book after reading a few pages. The book is basically divided among the 6 priniciples. Within each principle there are lessons. The author describes Julius Caesars life from his early beginning. It almost felt like a bunch of short stories with lessons at the end where the author would break down how that event applied to the principles. The outline of how he compares Julius Caesar's life with modern day events can be improved. Overall I learned a lot about Julius Caesar and the major events that changed history. I really liked how the author describes Julius Caesar crossing the Rubicon and its consequences.
