Review: So this is the second book I am reviewing that is written by Ashraf Haggag, the first one being Echoes of Culture in the Corporate Environment. Both of them were received through VInfluencers. To sum up its genre, Legends over Generations is a self-help/motivational book. The book begins with a lovely note by the author as to how leadership is important and how various Leaders over Generations were born who changed the course of our future. What is it that separates these people from the rest of us? This is the question whose answer the author seeks to find in this book.
As you read further, the author takes you on a roller coaster journey. He discusses the lives and times of various leaders across different fields- human rights, science, politics, art and literature. From Napolean Bonaparte to Dalai Lama to William Shakespeare to Nikola Tesla, there is so much information and inspiration for you to absorb that it will make your head spin!
The best part? Every chapter on each Legend ends with their famous quotes which are inspiring, to say the least. Unlike other books, it is not preachy. The book is simple facts, but these are facts that make you want to do something good, if not for the world at large, then atleast for yourself.
Finally, there are just a couple of pages where Ashraf analyses the common traits in all these Legends over Generations. These are simple, understandable and easily implementable tips that you will certainly cherish and thank the author for.
I think perhaps the only downside to this book is that there are some grammatical errors/incorrect usage of vocabulary that might put you off a little as they tend to break your flow. But all in all, this book is a great read and certainly recommended for those who are looking for a dose of inspiration or simply want to hone their leadership skills.
