“Xenophone's Cyrus--the earliest book on the subject--is still the best book on leadership.” ―Peter F. Drucker
From the Back Cover
The Iranians came to regard Cyrus as "The Father," the Babylonians as "The Liberator," and the Jews as "The Anointed of the Lord." The Greeks called him "The Law Giver," and, a century after Cyrus's death, an admiring Xenophon of Athens wrote an epic account of his many leadership principles at war and at peace.
By freshening the voice, style, and diction that Xenophon ascribed to Cyrus, Larry Hedrick has fashioned a more immediate Cyrus. A new generation of readers, including executives, managers, and military officers, can now learn from Cyrus's unparalleled leadership and wisdom in Xenophon's classic narrative.

In my opinion, this is more a book for business minded readers. Hedrick`s goal is to provide lessons on leadership, to business minded professionals. Potential readers might want to read Xenophon`s account of Cyrus, if they are more historically then business minded.
I hope in today's world, a leader same as Cyrus would emerge in political world and save us from this path of destruction.
Thank you Mr. Larry HEDRICK for reflecting light on Iran's heritage and enlighten Iranians and others of this great man's virtue.
