In fact, little may have changed -- company performance creates a Halo that shapes the way we perceive strategy, leadership, people, culture, and more. The Halo Effect unmasks these delusions and replaces mistaken thinking with a sharper understanding of what drives business success and failure. Drawing on examples from leading companies - and mercifully free of business jargon - The Halo Effect is for those thinking managers who want to separate fact from fiction in the business world.

"Phil Rosenzweig has done us all a great service by speaking the unspeakable. His iconoclastic analysis is a very welcome antidote to the kind of superficial, formulaic, and dumbed-down matter that seems to be the current stock in trade of many popular business books. It's the right book at the right time." (John R. Kimberly, Henry Bower Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania)
"Business books all too rarely combine real-world savvy with scientific rigor. Rosenzweig's book is an outstanding exception - it's a superb work and long overdue." (Philip E. Tetlock, Lorraine Tyson Mitchell II Chair in Leadership and Communication, Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley)
First four chapters seemed like filler but after listening to the rest of the book, the author was just over emphasizing a point. The book gets progressively better.
this book had all the potential, but the author just spent all but the last chapter saying, "Nobody in management books (Jim Collins, et al) is scientific." And then in the last chapter bailey developed anything but a premise that you should make a strategic plan, and then execute it.

The narration was fine.
I didn't find anything even interesting in this book.
I read a lot so this probably was simply redundant for me. You might like it.
You should read it! You have to read it! You must read it!...You will remain (bleep) if you don't read it!
