ALEXANDER THE GREAT Lessons from History’s Undefeated General

by | Read by Paul Michael Garcia

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

This is a dense book, full of names, places, and time lines. Further, it’s difficult to identify the places mentioned on contemporary maps since they have different terms for the ancient cities, rivers, and boundaries. Nonetheless, one gets a feeling for Alexander the man, who was most likely gay, and why he’s considered by many to be the greatest hero of history. Descriptions of the Macedonian's prowess when leading in battle demonstrate his military brilliance and inspiring personality. Listeners hear why history has never forgotten this man or his influence. Narrator Paul Garcia never hesitates in crossing the vast sea of Greek, Arabic, and Latin words—never mind if we don't literally understand them. His skillful contribution, however, inflects them such that we can follow their context. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
