    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?

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    It is based off an expansive study of companies that made the transition. You can tell that every detail was vetted and thoroughly researched. Too many business books today are based of opinion with little fact to support key points. This not only provides substantial evidence, but also great examples of real companies that have become 'great'

    Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), credited as the inspiration for radio, robots, and even radar, has been called the patron saint of modern electricity. Based on original material and previously unavailable documents, this acclaimed book is the definitive biography of the man considered by many to be the founding father of modern electrical technology.

    Story

    Pros:
    Learn about all aspects of his life

    Cons:
    Got lost in some of the technical discussion on his inventions

    I picked this up to learn about a historical figure that I have heard contributed greatly to modern science but short of the Tesla coil I knew nothing about. The book took a deep dive into all aspects of his life and his projects. While I am not electrical engineer I was able to general understand his inventions, but got lost in some of the technical discussions.
