Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Collins and Hansen draw some interesting and counterintuitive conclusions from their research…far from a dry work of social science. Mr. Collins has a way with words, not least with metaphor.” Wall Street Journal
“A sensible, well-timed, precisely targeted message for companies shaken by macroeconomic crises.” Financial Times
“[Collins’] enthusiasm is genuine—and a perfect vehicle for the riveting findings of this research. The authors compared extraordinarily successful companies to those that were mediocre or worse in the same industries, business climates, and time frames…Read with appealing verve, this is an energizing lesson for leaders in all realms of life.” AudioFile
“Collins and Hansen analyze the best companies and their leaders’ actions in extreme environments and demonstrate by example that greatness is determined by the choices made, not luck…Entrepreneurs and business leaders may find the concepts in this book useful for making choices to increase their odds of building a great company.” Booklist
