    Good quick read with a lot of actionable takeaways that you can apply to every business. The book is structured with chapter summaries at the end of each chapter which for me is a great way to recap, it’s like highlighting for dummies.

    This is one of my favorite business books because the key principles are based on exhaustive research and culled from the most successful companies in American history. The research team analyzed the traits of failing and successful companies to determine what systems, controls, and leadership characteristics were present in each. The findings aren't earth shattering (things like focus, attention to detail, and nurturing top employees) but the collective impact feels actionable. I believe wholeheartedly in the teachings of this book.

      I love this book too. Also reading Guy Kawasaki's new one called Reality Check. Great, and focused on entrepeneurs. Hopefully, knowing how to spell entrepeneur isn't a requirement for being a good one. :D

    Very Good!!! e.g. In Jim Collins book “Good to Great” chapter 4 page 83 (which is by no-doubt a must book) he is quoting Stockdale saying: “You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end – which you can never afford to lose – with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.”
