In Inc. magazine, in 2004, Mike Hofman interviewed Alan Axelrod for an article entitled Alan Axelrod, Business Book Juggernaut. Hofman mentioned Axelrod's two top sellers at the time Patton on Leadership and Elizabeth I CEO. He asked Axelrod about the topics of two new books on business ethics and business etiquette. He also asked how Axelrod chose subjects of biographies.
The Kirkus Review of Patton on Leadership describes the book as a "compact but insightful volume" and "concise yet in-depth look at a fascinating man whose myth, in many ways, outshines the facts." The review concludes: "Like Patton at his best: polished, precise and persuasive."
In an article in Huffington Post on April 10, 2012, updated June 10, 2012, Rabbi Alan Lurie quoted Encyclopedia of Wars by Charles Phillips and Alan Axelrod for the identification of only 123 of 1763 wars listed in the book as involving "a religious cause, accounting for less than 7 percent of all wars and less than 2 percent of all people killed in warfare."
Axelrod was quoted several times by John Brandon in the June 7, 2012 article in Popular Mechanics entitled How Assassin's Creed III Re-created the Revolutionary War because Axelrod was the author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to the American Revolution.
In an article posted online June 30, 2016 and updated September 28, 2016, WFMZ-TV 69 News (Allentown, Pennsylvania), 69News discussed the release of two children's books illustrated by historical artist Mort Kunstler. One of them, "The Revolutionary War 1775-1783," has "text by Alan Axelrod, renowned historian and co-author of the New York Times bestseller, What Every American Should Know About American History."
Jim Michaels interviewed Axelrod for an article in USA Today about the United States Marine Corps at the Battle of Belleau Wood in World War I. The battle proved that the Marines were well trained as a modern fighting force and with skill and courage stopped the Germans from advancing on Paris. Axelrod had written a book about the battle.
