Overview

A look at leadership from a celebrated student of Socrates

One of Socrates’ disciples in his youth, Xenophon fought as a mercenary in Persia, traveled widely, and later wrote a broad range of works on history, politics, and philosophy. These six treatises offer his remarkable insights into the nature of leadership, the burdens of absolute power, the legendary King of Sparta, the skills of the hunter, and more.
