Product Description

Condemned to Repeat It: The Philosopher Who Flunked Life and Other Great Lessons from History (9780670859511): Wick Allison, Jeremy Adams, Gavin Hambly: Books. Hot and trendy business books seem to share one common characteristic: it is difficult to remember specific points of advice once the book's last page has been read. Publisher, journalist, and jack-of-all-editorial-trades Allison intends to reverse that tendency; by teaming up with two history professors, he delivers nearly 50 maxims of success, each illustrated with at least one true-to-life story. Lessons are pulled from almost every century: MacArthur's strategy to encircle the city of Rabaul in the Pacific during World War II is literal proof of go around obstacles to get at the objective. And the exhortation to lead by example, a very traditional piece of advice given to up-and-coming managers, is exemplified by the Danish king who wore a yellow for Jews only armband during the German occupation of his country. Sprightly writing and fascinating historical tidbits make this an educational--and memorable--read. Barbara Jacobs
