While a good subject the professor just doesn't have the same enthusiasm as most of the others I've listen to in the Great Courses series so it gets a bit boring, still chock full of facts and information so not a total loss of time.
Only problem with it as far as I'm concerned.
If you are interested in Alexander and his conquests it's definitely worth a listen even if the narrator seems like he's just going through the motions.

Audiobooks focusing on one individual usually don't excite me, but this academic journey shows us Alexander as an extraordinary human being in extraordinary circumstances. Not a legend. Not godlike.
That doesn't mean his story is any less exciting up close. Worth the buy. I give it 4 stars in Story because the professor takes so long explaining the world and Macedonia before Alexander's birth to set the stage.
