How many times have you heard popular business authors say 'break all the rules', 'innovate or die', 'act now!' and 'be bold!'? All this sounds good, but is it true? Mr. Collins book brings a realistic, pragmatic and actionable view of what makes a business successful - amid all the hype. His book focuses on three success factors: fanatic discipline, empirical creativity and practical paranoia. Each of these factors grounded in significant research. For example, with the passing of Steve Jobs, there's lots of talk about the importance of innovation. Mr. Collins work puts innovation in proper perspective by showing that companies need a certain level of innovation in their companies to survive, but companies that innovated a lot, tended to get into trouble. This is where the book cuts through the hype and puts innovation into a realistic context.
Who is this book for? Here's the amazing thing about this book: you can apply these principles to a major corporation, non-profit, church, or even to yourself! If you're a leader of any size organization, you'll walk away from this book with stuff you can start doing on Monday. This book continues Mr. Collins outstanding series of books: Built to Last, Good to Great - everyone of them a home run.

Collins should not have tried to read this.
It is odd how bad the read is: Stilted, odd mid-sentence pauses, generally disconnected.
The book itself is good. The reading of it was distracting.
