Item description for The Modern Gladiator by Hyrum W. Smith...

In business and in life, we often find ourselves facing the same challenge Roman gladiators faced -- act or be acted upon.

In his new book, The Modern Gladiator, Hyrum W. Smith shows, through the powerful metaphor of the gladiator, how success today depends upon our training and tools, just as it did in the time of the Romans. To conquer his or her battles today, the modern gladiator must acquire training and experience as a shield and the tools of personal productivity as the short sword that was key to the rise of the Roman Empire. The Modern Gladiator will not only help you deflect the onslaught of today's life-overload but also take you to a higher level of balance and increased personal productivity.

The Modern Gladiator introduces some of FranklinCovey's products and services and how they can help you in the arena of life.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Modern Gladiator?

Sounds cool, but is a dud  Aug 16, 2008
The premise sounded very cool - and promised to tell me how to manage my work like a gladiator! It compared the modern office worker to a Roman gladiator. The author describes the violence that the Roman gladiator encountered - swords, arrows, wild animals, and then compares it to emails, people dropping by, and phone calls. It was quite a joke. And then it ends with talking about products that he is selling.
Short commercial for the other Franklin products  Sep 1, 2002
It doesn't give you any real information other than that you should buy all the other books from Franklin Covey or attend their seminars. If you are interested in this kind of stuff you are better off with First Thing First or What Matters Most. Also check out Getting Things Done by David Allen.
15% wisdom, 60% overdone analogies, and 25% advertising.  Aug 6, 2002
Hyrum Smith did have a couple of gems, such as "Learn to say NO!", in this CD audio book, but not enough to require two CDs. The gladiator analogy, although interesting from a historical perspective, is repeated too many times to be useful. He did demonstrate that he understood the effects of information overload, but really didn't offer much to counter it, other than a long sales pitch to buy the Franklin-Covey products.
Good idea, but...  Jun 15, 2002
I liked the idea of the gladiator/free lancer profesionally trained soldier as modern worker and have read/listened to a couple of books using the same subject (Live Rich by Stephen Pollan was the best). Hyrum Smith has taken the topic and just ruins any thought of businessman/woman as warrior. It is bland as plain generic vanilla and not as motivational or informative as expected. The first CD was a re-hash of the Franklin/Covey books written before with some statistics about information overload thrown in and the second has about 15 minutes of usable information. I have read Hyrum's work before and honestly I expected better.

Here's the short version: 1. Life used to be much more simple. 2. Soldiers used to use long swords and shields until the romans introduced the short sword and shield. 3. Use whatever tools make you effective in business and check out my website to buy them. the end.
