The book itself wasn't that bad but I just couldn't bear through the book. Other reviewers mentioned this problem too but I thought I could make it. I was wrong.
No. You'll regret wasting your money and/or credits.
Anyone. This is not far from the truth.
I feel like the narrator is preforming for a 3rd grade class, he is simple terrible. The only way to tolerate the book is at 2x speed
Really solid message
anyone, he is simple the worst
Collins uses a similar comparison technique he used in his Built to Last, Good to Great, and How the Mighty Fall books however the focus is now comparison of companies during times of great turmoil. The discussion around how companies deal with good and bad luck and how the great companies are prepared ahead of time to gain from both good and bad luck was very eye opening idea. Very similar to the other books but still a very worthwhile read.
I loved this book! They draw out highly valuable insight on what companies do to be great.
The concepts they find are simple (however, doing them isn't) and easy to compare to your environment. This is a must read for any entrepreneur or even people trying to improve their own greatness.
Very insightful...simply the best book on business strategy I've ever read. I really appreciate that all of the data is factual and not based on the authors personal experience and or opinions . Just straight facts...love it. I will be implementing all of the things I learned from this book into my business.
My boss loaned this book to me a couple of years ago. I had trouble finding the time to finish it. Since my commute is 1-2 hours one way each day, I decided to listen instead! Jim's inflection and focus on particular aspects kept me engaged. Great book!
