Reviews

"Power Ambition Glory serves as a remarkable historical guide. It's both a reference guide to the rise and fall of empires, as well as a fresh look at modern business leaders and how they fit the framework of history." --From the foreword by Mayor Rudy Giuliani "An appealing read that draws a remarkable correlation between great leaders of the ancient world and highly profiled leaders of our time. It is both interesting and instructive to learn of these striking parallels and to realize that extolled leadership at any time often includes similar vision, like deployment and unconventional strategies. It is also interesting to find that notable personal failings of recent times have roots in yesterday. Those who are interested in leadership can profit greatly from reading this novel piece." --Larry Bossidy, coauthor of Execution and former CEO of Honeywell "Power Ambition Glory crystalizes the commonalities of highs and lows of modern and ancient leaders. The book is, in fact, an inspiration in showing how simple tenets such as focusing, setting an example, and embracing diversity lead to true greatness. It is a book that speaks to today's void. What we lack today, Steve Forbes and John Prevas remind us can be regained again by learning from the lessons of the classic ancient leaders and even some modern CEOs that lived by their examples." --Meredith Whitney, CEO and founder of Meredith Whitney Advisory Group "Steve Forbes knows the importance of history, and this book brings that to our attention in a fascinating and pertinent way. Power Ambition Glory is a wonderful read from beginning to end, and people in all fields will learn and be inspired by it. Steve is one guy everyone should listen to!" --Donald J. Trump "Steve Forbes and John Prevas have brilliantly woven together the ancient world and permanent principles of effectiveness to provide guidance for today's would-be leaders." --Newt Gingrich From the Hardcover edition.
