By the time he was 32 Alexander the Great had conquered the known world. I’m was a training manager for a mid-size market research firm. At first glance it may seem that Alex had got one over on me but then again I saw my 33rd birthday which is something he never managed to do so I’m going to claim that as a draw.
The story of Alexander the Great is a familiar one. But this book looked at what came after his death. His empire had been recently captured so his generals needed to use all their wits and military expertise to keep it. They also fought among each other as to who should get what. It’s an absorbing tale and one most people who know anything about which is strange given the sheer scale of some of these conflicts.
