Vincent Taylor is an Australian author who recently completed writing a book on another Russian historical character – Yaroslav the Wise. Vincent was generous enough to provide me a free copy of the book.
In his book, Vincent writes that Yaroslav was as vigorous and courageous as he was wise and there are many documented incidents that prove the same.
Vincent writes that Yaroslav even showed is wisdom when it came the time for him to get married. He didn’t marry Ingegerd Olofsdotter of Sweden for her beauty but rather for the political reasons. Vincent adds that a powerful man like Yaroslav the Wise shouldn’t have showed such desperation for the political reasons but rather beauty, but he was Yaroslav the Wise after all.
Vincent agrees with the historians who claim that Yaroslav the Wise never took an action without careful planning.
Vincent writes that Yaroslav was a great time manager as well. Vincent writes that Yaroslav could give any of the current billionaires a run for their money when it comes to the time management.
Vincent writes in his book that Yaroslav’s most favorite story was that of Delilah and Samson. Vincent would ask his court poets to recite him different poems about Delilah and Samson at least 4 times in a week.
In his book, Vincent claims that Yaroslav’s only hero in his life was his great-grandmother – Saint Olga. Vincent writes that nobody could influence Yaroslav the Wise, the way his great-grandmother Saint Olga did.
Vincent has made another claim in his book that Yaroslav hated his communication skills and envied his son-in-law – King Harald III of Norway’s communication skills and asked him to teach him as well, which Harald III always took as a joke and never serious.
Vincent finds that writing books is not enough for him to make a living in a country like Australia and therefore, last week he announced on his blog that this was the last book that he ever wrote and from now on, he is going to make money using his blogs since he believes that he has read adequate number free and paid books about how to make money from your blog.
