The new question: Ten years after the worldwide best seller Good to Great, Jim Collins returns to ask: Why do some companies thrive in uncertainty, even chaos, and others do not? In Great by Choice, Collins and his colleague, Morten T. Hansen, enumerate the principles for building a truly great enterprise in unpredictable, tumultuous, and fast-moving times.
The new study: Great by Choice distinguishes itself from Collins’s prior work by its focus on the type of unstable environments faced by leaders today.
The new findings:
This book is classic Collins: contrarian, data-driven, and uplifting. He and Hansen show convincingly that, even in a chaotic and uncertain world, greatness happens by choice, not by chance.

What a horrible book. Why couldn't these guys hire a narrator? It's like listening to a motivational speaker yelling at your ear. Pauses for like two seconds every other word for the whole effect of driving you nuts. The thesis of the book is interesting, as long as you can tolerate the narration.
I feel like the narrator is preforming for a 3rd grade class, he is simple terrible. The only way to tolerate the book is at 2x speed
Really solid message
anyone, he is simple the worst
Simply great data.
Play this at 1.25 speed. Way too slow of a read for anything less.
Jim adds some additional great concepts to build on "Good to Great." Starts out a little boring and theoretical with the triangle concept he presents, but when he gets into the examples, it brings the concepts to life.
The authors attention to detail is incredible. I love how it was read. Thank you so much for the Q and A at the end.
Much much better than their good to great book, which was much drier.
Thank you Jim and Morten!
This book contains loads of insite and real life examples of companies that not only weathered the storm but came out leaps and bounds ahead of the competition.
Jim dive deep in what is most relevant for running an successful organization. Is one of the best business books out there.
I would definitely recommend for those wishing to take their companies to the next level.
Top 5 of all books.
20 mile march. What it means to be consistent.
Made very specific points to the 10x'er. Are you a 10x'er?
Persistence and value blew me away!
If this book does not motivate you, I am super sorry. This is one of the new age motivational and confidence builders of today.
