Are there those that convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? If so, what are the distinguishing characteristics that cause a company to go from good to great?

How to book for abolishing complacency. Review by David
This is simply a must read for any leader who struggles with taking their team to a new level of productivity. The hardest part of going from good to great is when no one else has done what you are trying to do. This book provides some very simple principles giving you a roadmap to help you and your team understand what should be your main focus.

great listen Review by samantha
I had heard this book had great info in it, but dry to read. Listening was a great way to get the info. The author's passion for this topic draws you in, given he reads it, and it engages you in the story. Recommend it!

Good info Review by Anaxamaxan
Yes, the narrator is the author, so maybe that counts for something. But man, he just goes so far over the top over-weighting his words so often, it's pretty comical at times. The sample is a bit misleading, because Collins is just getting warmed up in that. A few more pages in, and He Is Speaking Like A Triumphant Graduate Student Who Has Just...Found...The...PROOF...That...Discipline -- DISCIPLINE! -- is the Key!

Narrative comedy aside, there is a lot of worthwhile information here, though when you boil it down there's a lot of the obvious here. Also in late 2010 the discussion of Circuit City and Fannie Mae as "great companies" is a bit ridiculous; and some of the companies discussed as great have attained their greatness in part by less-than-moral means that have come to light in the years of increasingly ubiquitous internet since the book's publication. Still, Collins' articulation is highly accessible and well-ordered, making "the obvious" easier to digest and retain.

A well researched book Review by Richard
Well researched. Counter-intuitive conclusions. Easy to listen to narration. Definitely worth the time and money.

Will become a classic Review by M. Rubio
The principals described in this book just make sense, therefore required reading. There may be other things that also help companies go from good to great, but its hard to argue against the logic of these principals. Thank you Jim for synthesizing them so nicely. As for the criticism regarding the eventual downturn of companies in the study sample, Jim answers this clearly at the end of the book. In short this book is not about companies - its about principals. Some companies eventually stop adhering to the principals to their detriment.
