Collins has an excellent narrating voice and clearly loves to teach on this material. He is energetic and lively. Rather than dryly 'reading' the book, he truly narrates it, often adding little bits and pieces to the story, providing value to the listener.

I've listened to this book three times and its worth every second. The authors break down almost in an entertaining classroom style lesson. They profile why some companies are really worlds apart in success and culture.
The best part is that they go into good detail so a business owner like my self can impliment immediately.
You can easily appreciately the cleaverness and work that went into this book. If you are a business owner or thinking about it, this is a must read.
Yes, good book for business, but also important life lessons
The story of the race to the south pole in relation to Southwest Airlanes.
Yes from Good to great. This was a nice extension from that book.
Could be it is a really easy listen. Great job to Jim for reading the book!
Can Jim Collins send me a free hard copy for my business partner?
Yes, this book is a must to help understand where you fit in an origination and as a leader what you should be looking for in your team.
Yes, but then it must be read again to really get everything.
Yes, all of them. This one is very good.
Not the kind of book you would want to listen to in one sitting; a lot of information to digest and think about.
I read Good to Great a number of years ago and learned a lot from it. Great by Choice, following the same format, was equally educational and its parables -- always to illustrate factual observations -- coupled with Jim's narration was immensely entertaining, I dare say his best work yet... in print or otherwise.
No but Jim does a good job of telling you what the charts he's talking about look like.
Love the stories of the South Pole, Everest, and Climbing.
Jim does it again. He's great at explaining things in his book so that you know he's not reading something. Only he could do this as he's the one who wrote the book.
No too much for one sitting, its a book I've already listened to sections of several times and I have a lot more notes to take.
The best book I read this year and the most applicable. I've read good to great. After reading this one I got
Good book, I love it, My husband and I recently open a business in Tucson AZ and this book kept me positive and believing on the services we provide. I also love the phrase, "no one know the future, we make the future." I have used the phrase many times, but now, I really live it! the downside of the book is that it has some unnecessary information about what could had happened if you invested..... I really got lost there and uninterested on the book, but once I passed that section, it was okay....
This is a must read for anyone who has read the other Collins books. I found this book (read by author) very insightful and offered some practical steps to take to help you become a 10X manger, team or company. Thanks Jim!
This is a must read for any mid-manager that is interested in taking his/her department, division, company or school district to the next level. I will definitely share this with my Cabinet.
