I needed the full book!

What did you like best about A Summary of Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies by Jim Collins and Jerry I. Porras? What did you like least?

This wasn't the narrator's fault or anything. I didn't like this because it was soooooo squished together that it was hard to actually get anything out of. I've gone through abridged versions of books before and this was not one of my favorites.

summary?

more like a summary of a summary. way too oversimplified, maybe I'm just used to more content. Just felt rushed.

Never give up on your company - thanks

Trivial management dribble. I will get the book and see if it is really this meaningless.

Great book but summary is really really short.

It's really a great book to read. But in summary it's very short. I have gone through summary of Good to Great. That is awesome.

Augh

If the narrator said the authors names one more time I was going to throw my phone out the window. This is an ad, not a summary. And a bad one at that. Would that I could have the time back that I wasted on this. I read the book and loved it Bought this as a refresher. Which it is not. :(

Disappointed

I was expecting more than mostly one sentence summary of chapters. Not a good buy.

just a general list

This Summary is just a list of general recommendations or principles for a lasting organization. Unfortunately, there are no justifications or explanations for the claims. I have not read the book, and the actual book may be quite informative and interesting. However, I did not find the summary to be so. It was a waste of time and money. For those who are truly interested in the subject, perhaps getting the actual book would be worthwhile.
