    The lives of Hannibal and his Roman enemies are the stuff of legend. But these classic stories contain truths with relevance today: The seeds of our successes lie in our failures, and within our successes are the kernels of our failure. Knowing how to recognize these paradoxes will help us to be more effective at work, at school, at home, and with others. A big new idea book that springs from ancient history, Hannibal and Me explores these exciting ideas by analyzing the experiences of Hannibal and others who made their mark on history.

    Story
    If you could sum up Hannibal and Me in three words, what would they be?

    inspired my thinking


    What did you like best about this story?

    history became relevant, alive, the story telling was magnificent. The narrator was a joy to listen to.


    What did you learn from Hannibal and Me that you would use in your daily life?

    I think about people that I interact with, and try to understand their "history" . I was inspired to read ( or audio ) more biographies to expand my own knowledge.


    Any additional comments?

    I have recommended this title to many of my friends. I work out ( hiking and outdoor cardio ) while listening to audiobooks, and with this story, I was compelled to work out longer as I didn't want my sessions to end. I will again listen to this book after I have read about Eleanor Roosevelt. I had already read all of Amy Tan's books, so I was familiar with her as an author, but enjoyed learning more about her as a child. I also love ancient history, so of course, the story of Hannibal was great.
