I like that Jim repeats and reiterates the key themes of the book throughout, i.e. The right people in the bus and off the bus, the three circles, the hedgehog and the flywheel. These are good images to solidify meaning and connection. Well done!
The content itself is great however the performance was distracting. The recording didn't appear to be polished. You could hear dry mouth lip smacks, pages turning, ambience changing, and stuttering. Very unfortunate that the "good to great" study wasn't applied to the making of this production.
Jim Collins is a great writer. Reason for slow start was perhaps after listening to Gary V on audio, his voice and passion as he reads, this books had a slow start. The facts are great and the book itself is a must read.
This book lives upto it's reviews. Amazing insights, bottom line Persue your passion with conviction and determination, be humble and compassionate to others 🙏🏼.
Some good ideas, but a bit painful to listen. I found myself speeding up the audio to get through is quicker, especially near the end. A summery of the key points in a 1 hour version would have been a better use of time for me.
2 take aways for me:
1) humble leadership creates more sustainable businesses.
2) having the right people on the bus and the right people in the right seats is critical. But how?
Author always refers to figures and tables. Would be good to have it as addendum
I really liked the content and particularly the scientific method behind it. I didn't like the performance. Jim hammers some things incessantly to the point where I found myself turning down the volume. This isn't throughout the book, only periodically, but it was way too much. But if you suffer through that you'll get a lot out of this book.
l really appreciate how he reinforced the thing I struggle with the most is how to stay on a path were I see greatness can be achieved long term and not always bend to the need for instance results that are flashy but not sustainable
