The book is a positive outlook of how to avoid being a one man control freak. And again it is a positive approach to a negative problem. It should also be noted that the multiple is 2 times. Not a 3x or 10x type approach but in addition to learning how to work with people in leadership from this perspective the book also covers how to keep people on a team and attract new ones if the concepts are understood.
Over and over Jim Collins puts out wonderful books. The research and time put into these books is unusual because the authors seem more concerned with meaningful books than sales of the book itself. Perhaps they see both as the same thing and the book worked. If you read each of Jim's books you will see he approaches the same subject from different angles and the insights are very valuable. How the Mighty Fall is another great perspective on durable effective business concepts.
Seems the author was tainted by being forced to do outlines and structure when he did not want to earlier in life. He offers great tips but the perspective was built too much on the failure of former systems rather than the consideration that different systems work for different personalities.
If you don't understand the headline then you have not read the book. Luck does not make many great leaders or destroy many great leaders. This book does the best job of explaining what that means of any book I have read to date.
