This book made me weep twice. I'm not sure yet if that was a direct result of the writing or just things going on in my life while I read it. However, it was a really eye-opening look at the late sixties and early seventies, in a way I'd never considered them before.
I got this book because I had seen Alexander and wondered how much of it was true and real.This book does that.It doesn't hide any of his shortcomings...doesn't make him into some mystical,god-like being who shaped and conquered all of Asia...and simply tells the truth.It gives you a real look of what made the man Alexander,Alexander the Great who set up cities named after him.You know in this book you learn that the city of Alexandria in Egypt that came to him in a dream with even the lay out of the city.It was to be a melting pot of all people.If you want to learn about Alexander then read this book!!
