Product Description

Review

Xenophone's Cyrus--the earliest book on the subject--is still the best book on leadership.” ―Peter F. Drucker

From the Back Cover

Twenty-five hundred years ago, Cyrus, a great Persian leader of wisdom and virtue, created the Persian Empire, conquered Babylon, freed forty thousand Jews from captivity, wrote mankind's first human rights charter, and ruled over those he had defeated with respect and benevolence.

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.

Hedrick has put together an interesting book. He has studied the life of Cyrus The Great. Hedrick uses the examples of Cyrus`s leadership skills, to provide leadership lessons for the reader. These are timeless conclusions regarding leadership, and can be applied to any era.

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.

The author of this book Mr. Larry HEDRICK have done great research in order to bring into light King of kings Cyrus the Great humanitrian achievements to readers attention. Truly, King Cyrus the Great was father of Persia/Iran, and liberator of Babylonians, law giver to Greek and messiah for Jews.

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.

As a disciple of Peter F Drucker and as a skeptic that Leadership can be taught, i now understand why Peter D praised this book and now understand that Leadership can be learned from the example of Cyrus the Great.
