I loved the rich historical stories and the many mini biographies from different eras. He looks past the individual accomplishment or defeat to judge success or failure of a person over a lifetime. Like statistics he drew his teachings from these stories while someone else could draw other conclusions. Overall highly recommended audio that looks at your own and famous peoples accomplishments in a different light. Entertaining while making you think.
