    Decline can be avoided. Decline can be detected. Decline can be reversed. Amidst the desolate landscape of fallen great companies, Jim Collins began to wonder: How do the mighty fall? Can decline be detected early and avoided? How far can a company fall before the path toward doom becomes inevitable and unshakable? How can companies reverse course?

    Roger Smith says: "Collins is always right"
    "This is not Shakespeare"
    Overall

    How the Mighty Fall is a mature and disciplined perspective on the underpinnings of business success and failure. Collins provides grounded, grown up advice: avoid hubris, don't get greedy, be honest in your self appraisals, and it's almost never too late.

    Unfortunately, someone told Mr. Collins that he needed to kick the voice acting schtick up one too many notches. His reading is just short of a dramatization. This would be fine if his work was theater. But How the Mighty Fall isn't Shakespeare, it's good old American know how.

    A good listen if you can get past the delivery.
