This was given to me by a professor who knew that I abhorred poetry....so I obligingly read this and have come to appreciate poetry a bit more now than when I was a bullheaded student. Still, reading this was a chore and all I can recollect is that E ...more

Most of the "advice" in this book seemed pretty intuitive to me, which leads me to believe that mayhaps I'm not the target audience. It definitely tells the reader how to achieve the success referenced in the title, which is why it is such a timeless ...more

Sufficiently epic but not overwrought. The author expertly weaves a wholly fictional tale around historically accurate events. Enough history to be substantial, enough drama to keep you interested.
