Ep. 12 - An Announcement and Something New

This is the first-ever HTTOTW short. These 3-minute in-between-isodes will run during weeks when there isn't a new full episode.

This week’s short features three stories from the life of Steve Jobs.

This is in addition to the regular length episodes, and these will not distract from or delay new full-length episodes. Let me know what you think of the new format at Ben@HTTOTW.com.

Ep. 6 - Julius Caesar (Part 1)

In the first episode on the life of Julius Caesar, I analyze his rise and some of the fundamental character attributes that made him great, analyze some of the ways Caesar was like Steve Jobs and Napoleon, and look at his political strategies.

A big thank you to my sources, the biggest of which were Julius Caesar by Philip Freeman and Caesar: Life of a Colossus by Adrian Goldsworthy.

Ep. 5 - Vladimir Putin (2/2)

In the second episode on the life of Vladimir Putin, I analyze his communication strategy, his vast wealth and why it doesn't matter, and the possibility that Putin orchestrated multiple false flag terrorist attacks within Russia.

Once again my main sources for this episode are "The New Tsar: The Rise and Reign of Vladimir Putin" by Steven Lee Myers and "The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin" by Masha Gessen.

Ep.4 - Vladimir Putin (1/2)

Vladimir Putin: Modern day czar, KGB man, billionaire, reformer, and (probably a) murderer. Putin is a compelling case study because he lacks the genius of a Napoleon or Steve Jobs, suggesting the possibility that anyone could achieve his lofty levels of success with the right combination of strategy and luck. In Part 1, we examine his rise to power. Check back next Tuesday for Part 2.
