This book describes how some of the greatest rise to meet their competition and exceed expectations. Most of the book focuses on the 5 traits that it takes survive hardships in larger companies. Yes, it does mention some questionable companies but as the author states near the end of the book the principles are still applicable despite their current standings. I would definitely recommend this book to the person who is looking to run their own life and plans to become something GREAT!
a refreshing look at amazing leaders and the successful companies that they led. Opens your eyes to what each of us can be capable of accomplishing if we strive for it.
if you can get past the list of 'great' company's that haven't done that great. its a worth while read as it is so frequently referenced (often badly) in current literature.
I think the basic message of this book that the right type of simplicity is very hard but very worthwhile is still valid.
It's a must read and reflect book.
The concepts are easy to understand, but at the same time they are very challenging to apply.
Might be the worst narration I've ever heard. Great book but I couldn't wait to be done so I didn't have to listen to him anymore. It's a shame, I would like to get his other books but I'm never listening to him again.
A professional narrator could have improved the experience, but the content itself is quite weak
Something more substantial
No, his narration was really distracting.
I reference both frequently
The identification of humility as a quality of great leaders was life changing for me. Starting a new journey for me to find grace in my life.
