This book needs to be updated to no longer lean on Best Buy as a model of success. They're business has suffered in recent years and I suspect that even if Best Buy has high employee engagement, their failure to innovate is weighing heavily on their success.

Well rounded, shorter book but reads a bit slower
I recently read musk and jobs buographied and the 4 dysfunctions of a team
...if you enjoyed them you'll probably enjoy this but it reads much slower. I actually put it down. a few times and had to force myself to come back to and I am glad I did bc it really shines in the last chapter.
