If you are truly interested in learning about leadership and leaders throughout the history of mankind, this book will be worth your time. It is complex and not an easy read but was helpful in helping me understand the paradoxes of leadership.

Well written- it could be a text book on leadership. It also educates on the leadership processes and personality that have and can create good and challenging leaders.
