Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't by Jim Collins
Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't

machina45, September 2, 2011

This book is a quick and easy read and great for anyone interested in improving their business, becoming a better manager, or those that want to know why some businesses are successful and some aren't. It contains many simple concepts, easy for almost anyone to understand, as well as documented proof of the effectiveness of these concepts in examples of well known companies. I liked it because I read it very quickly and feel like I understand communication and leadership more so now than before. It is very organized, and concise but not overly simplified. Understanding this book and acting on these principles is almost guaranteed to make your business, no matter what it is, a great one with long term success and profit.
