Summary

Drawing upon a six-year research project at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business, James C. Collins and Jerry I. Porras took 18 truly exceptional and long-lasting companies and studied each in direct comparison to one of its top competitors. They examined the companies from their very beginnings to the present day - as start-ups, as midsize companies, and as large corporations. Throughout, the authors asked: "What makes the truly exceptional companies different from the comparison companies and what were the common practices these enduringly great companies followed throughout their history?"
Organized into a coherent framework of practical concepts that can be applied by managers and entrepreneurs at all levels, Built to Last provides a master blueprint for building organizations that will prosper long into the 21st century and beyond.
This summary is aimed at those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the current time to devour the full book. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer. This is a summary that is not intended to be used without reference to the original book.

Very difficult to follow due to robotic voice

Found it near to impossible to understand due to the use of an automated voice to read the text.

Don't bother and buy the book.

Aweful. Computer-voice read.

What would have made Summary Jim Collins and Jerry Porras' Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies better?

The content is fine, although probably works better in read than audible format. It is a summary of the book, not the book itself.

The delivery is aweful. Computer-voice read, unnatural, difficult to listen to.

What didn’t you like about Cassius Mishima’s performance?

Can't be a real person. Sounds terrible.

Any additional comments?

Remove this item from your listings. Feels like a rip-off.

Management cliches

Maybe the full version of the book is good but this felt like a bunch of cliches that were too vague to do much with.

The readers voice sounds like a robot.
