A dynamic way to understand success and failure, through the life of one of history's greatest generals. Hannibal, the Carthaginian general who crossed the Alps with his army in 218 B.C.E., is the stuff of legend. And the epic choices he and his opponents made--on the battlefield and elsewhere in life--offer lessons about our victories and our defeats that are as relevant today as they were 2,000 years ago. A big-new-idea book inspired by ancient history, Hannibal and Me explores our triumphs and disasters by examining the decisions made by people--including Albert Einstein, Eleanor Roosevelt, Steve Jobs, Ernest Shackleton, and Paul Cézanne--who learned from their mistakes. By showing why some overcome failure and others succumb to it, and why some fall victim to success while others thrive on it, Kluth demonstrates how to recognize the seeds of success within our own failures and the threats of failure hidden in our successes.--From publisher description.
