Alan Axelrod is a Business Week best-selling author. A respected authority on business and management topics, he has also written works of historical biography. In Elizabeth I CEO, his varied skills converge to produce an important book that is both informative and entertaining. When Elizabeth ascended the throne in 1558, England was the laughing stock of Europe. Economic, political, and religious calamities were numerous, and Elizabeth endured constant criticism. But by the end of her 45-year reign, England was one of the world's mightiest nations. Axelrod uses the legendary Queen's life as a model for modern leadership, and a powerful example of how one person can make an extraordinary difference. Elizabeth I CEO is an indispensable guide for today's business managers and leaders. It is also an inspiring read for those taking their first steps up the corporate ladder, or those who simply love history. Nelson Runger's narration gives a renewed energy to Elizabeth's lessons, which are as relevant today as they were four centuries ago.

"Elizabeth I ruled England for 45 years and by the end of the sixteenth century had transformed a failing country into a world leader. Overcoming personal and political obstacles that will be familiar to modern leaders, she implemented strategies that the author abstracts into 136 lessons, each deftly written and superbly illustrated with fascinating historical vignettes. Listeners will rejoice that the text was spared the abridger's pen and is rendered in audio by a consummate voice. One of the best leadership guides, as well as a fascinating piece of political and personal history. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
