    Story
    (2082)

    Built To Last, the defining management study of the 90s, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning. But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

    What did you love best about Good to Great?

    I really enjoyed the book. I'm glad Collins took the time to explain his research methods, because he makes it very clear that the information in the book is well thought out and worth listening to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great examples, great research methods, clearly presented.


    What about Jim Collins’s performance did you like?

    As the book's author, he took the time to add extra thoughts that were not in the print edition. You can tell that he loves the work he did and that he is very passionate about it.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first audiobook I've ever listened to and the experience was great. I think I'm hooked!

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Very interesting book and well read. I always enjoy it when the author reads their own book--I really feel like it adds something to the experience.

    They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.

    Where does It rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm fairly new to audiobooks, but this is one of the best I've listened to.
