Wow! One of those books that gives you a true nuts and bolts explantion as to why some succeed, despite difficult circumstances, and what they do that allows them to succeed. Although this research come from the corporate world, it can be applied anywhere and, more important, it's something that's actually possible to achieve (not easy, but possible).I found it both helpful and inspirantional.

Another fantastic scientific study by Jim Collins about the differences between successful and mediocre companies. Must read for entrepreneurs and leaders! ( )

Хотя книга и относится к «бизнес-литературе» — то, что в ней изложено, может быть применено и для «я-корпорации», т.е. для своей жизни.

Главная ЦЕННОСТЬ книги в том, что она содержит не просто исследование, а СТРАТЕГИЮ того, как в мире постоянных изменений и частых потрясений не только «выживать», но и жить, и развиваться, и двигаться далее.

Пусть вас не пугает большой размер книги: можно ограничиться 60%, остальное — дополнительные материалы: вопросы и ответы для читателя, приложения к исследованию, описывающие его ход, и т.п. ( )

Another sequel to the series on great companies. This one has very in depth research on how companies manage to not only survive but thrive and prosper in times of adversity and uncertainty. One very interesting point of note, something I did not know before, Southwest airlines started by copying the operational manuals and principles of another regional airline Pacific Southwest Airlines (PSA).
