Read in January, 2008

Best biography ever read. While politically incorrect, to some degree, I unapologetically view him as the most impressive man who ever lived after reading the biography. He faced such awesome adversity and challenges and always ended-up on top (except until the fateful Ides of March). One is led to believe he almost had devine guidance and protection, until you come to the logical conclusion that he was a true genius in leading people to making strategic, calculated risks. His desire to clean-up the corrupt, partisan, oligarchical senate has some strong parallels to today. Cemented my fascination with Roman history and culture -- had only read historical fictions on Rome until then.
