Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670859516, Hardcover)

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. We all know George Santayana's famous quote, but what are the historical lessons that every business professional should keep in mind? Condemned to Repeat It puts this practical wisdom into a fast-paced, fun-to-read collection of fifty stories drawn from the battlefields, courts, and cabinets where world-changing decisions have been made. You'll learn about: • The only man who ever beat Hannibal(Respecting a talented opponent and studying his methods) • The lady pirate who ruled the sea(Negotiating through strength) • The emperor who kow-towed(Appearing to submit, then preparing to win) In the tradition of Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun, tales like these delineate the qualities of effective leadership. Condemned to Repeat It offers invaluable insight into how business really works, the perfect answer to history is bunk.
