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.

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.

I want the book but can't get it in audible. Jim Collins in good to great was great.
