  2. It s hard to know what to say about this book People love it, and love what it says, but several of the companies profiled turned out to be cooking their books, cheating customers, etc Wells Fargo, Sallie Mae, GE So I m left wondering, were these companies extraordinarily successful because of the processes and ideas presented in the book, or was their extraordinary success based on cheating I just can t take the book s advice seriously given the track record of several of the companies studied [...]

  4. This is the first business book I ve ever read, so I m not very famillar with the genre, but I enjoyed this I am not interested in being a CEO or anything like that, but I liked this book because many of the concepts talked about can be applied to my own life I saw this as of a general self improvement book that used businesses as examples of concepts, rather than a book solely about business.

  7. Good to great summarises the findings from extensive research into what makes certain high performing companies outperform their peers The findings are both interesting and capable of being replicated by any company that wishes to improve performance.This book is very concise and full of interesting case studies It was one of the few occasions when I wished the book could have been a bit longer.Well researched, well written, well done Here are some of the learnings I will be taking away from thi [...]
