Very interesting stories, not too interested in the applications, 9 July 2009
I found all the stories extremely interesting in this book,and would recommend those with an interest in history to read them, even some of the interpetations are quite enjoyable.
However I found that the "life" applications from these stories are best skipped over. I viewed it as a collection of notable encounters in history rather than ways to improve a career.
