I finally managed to get a copy of the book I ordered for my birthday - Alexander the Great's art of strategy. At first I thought it was a bit too small but it is making a fascinating read. Unfortunately it is not purely a biography of Alexander but also a business manual. Partha Bose works for a large international law firm and he is always talking about business. I just finished a chapter on the battle of Chaeronea. It was a fascinating battle, Alexander and Phillip defeated an enemy that had a superior force and a superior position by a little bit of clever thinking and manoeuvering.
Makes me want to be an international lawyer.
