    Paul Johnson's book is a refreshing return to a concept whose time has come once again: the Great Man theory of biography. It serves as "the greatest possible refutation of those who hold that events are governed by forces, classes, economics, and geography rather than the powerful wills of men and women". Napoleon truly was the Great Man of his age, a towering and terrible genius who managed to conquer the Continent.

    Mark Grannis says: "Not your standard biography"
    "Highly recommended"
    Overall

    A book full of fresh insights on a well-covered topic.
    Johnson gives us a critical yet balanced biography of Bonaparte, which avoids the pitfall of getting bogged down with individual battles. Despite the great breadth and thoroughness of this book, the pacing is swift, the style lively and captivating. To top it all off, "Napoleon" is read by John Lee, one of the best narrators on audible.com.
