This guide on Jim Collins’ Good to Great is an excellent alternative if you don’t have the time to read the real thing. “The Expert Guide” outlines Collins’ key points, defines terms he uses as benchmarks for success, and provides examples of successful (and unsuccessful) businesses. It’s no wonder Collins’ book was met with such popularity; it’s a must-read for a successful business venture.

Even the words of National Bestsellers should be taken with a grain of salt. What this summary / review provides is a distinction between the quality information in Good to Great, and the mistaken assumptions made by the author. This is a short book filled with what you need to know to succeed in business (or life) and it is something you will pick up to reference again and again. Good to Great is a staple of the business world, and rightfully so, but what this book gives you is only what you need to know without wasting your time with any of the filler.

I first picked up Good to Great in 30 Minutes with low expectations.  With so much valuable information in the original, I doubted it would work well in a compact book.  Luckily I was proven wrong.  An incredible amount of material is provided plainly and succinctly in this brief guide.  Including the origins of Good to Great as well as clear descriptions of method, the book had an excellent sense of organization and was so easy to comprehend.  I was a little concerned that the small book wouldn’t provide specific examples, but I was proven wrong once again – it deals both with broad concepts and offers example details so that the reader can really understand Collins’ points.  If you’re looking for a way to boost your company or organization, this is the place to start.

Jim Collins wrote a critically acclaimed book providing a simple, useful model for running a business destined for success.  “Good to Great…” is about standing out, rising above the competition, and securing that position.  If you don’t want to read a business book but you desire some quick sage advice that you can put to good use, this 30 Minute Expert version of Jim Collins is for you.  Keep in mind: while it may take somewhere around 30 minutes to tear through the book, it will take assuredly longer to put the principles of Jim Collins into practice.  A little bit of focus and discipline for the right people can’t hurt.

‘Good to Great in 30 Minutes’ examines the massive best seller “Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don’t” by James C Collins. Researching the Forbes 500 List, the author and his colleagues compiled eleven companies with ‘great’ attributes’, contrasting with ‘good’ companies that lack them.  In this version of Good to Great, the key concepts are broken down from Collins’ key concepts - Assembling the Right Team, Overcoming Adversity, and Achieving and Sustaining Success. These chapters elaborate on the author’s theory, provide examples, and suggests way to implement them into daily life.  This 30-minute guide is more an excerpt of ‘Good to Great’ than a slimmed-down version of the full book.  The lessons in this version are entirely thorough, and explain why the book is still being sold in hardcover 12 years after publication.

The Expert Guide is a short, easy-to-read guide for Jim Collins's book Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...and Others Don't. Collins's book talks about how companies can beat out their competition and has been a huge success, so the guide is a great way for readers to learn what all the hype is about. The guide offers readers' responses, gives a detailed synopsis of the book, and discusses how the key concepts are universal, for they do not only apply to business. My favorite part is that it allows me to see what other readers think of the book before I go through with my purchase. After reading this guide, I am confident that Collins's book will help me become more successful in the workforce and in life.

This book is a great introduction to Collins’ book. I found the summaries inside incredibly helpful, and really appreciated the initial breakdown of what to expect in the coming pages. My favorite section of the book was the very first chapter about building a great team; the explanation of the hierarchy was unique and insightful. I found the tips about sustaining the greatness of a business very thought-provoking as well. The concept application questions at the end of each chapter were also a great way to synthesize the information and apply it to your own life. After reading this introduction to Collins’ book, I’m sorely tempted to pick up the larger copy and read more in depth about his philosophy. This was definitely a great purchase.

Good to Great...In 30 Minutes is a short summary of some of the best that the original book has to offer. A great, quick read to understand key strategies that you can pick up in and understand more in-depth in "Good To Great" by Jim Collins.  What I took away from this book is a valuable piece of how discipline, not circumstances, can make a difference in how I run my business or life. That, along with other great strategies, makes this a book I will definitely continue referencing.

I am starting a business, so I’ve been searching for a good book on running a successful business. Without much spare time, the idea of reading a short Kindle summary was appealing. Good to Great in 30 Minutes - The Expert Guide to Jim Collins's Critically Acclaimed Book (30 Minute Expert Series) turned out to be a godsend. I began to read, and my mind became clear, and focused. I realized that I was setting myself up for failure, but Collins’ principles proved to be simple yet powerful. I am reminded of shooting pool, of how it helps to aim through the cue ball when breaking. Now I aim to pierce through the barrier of mediocrity and free my company to excel. This guide provided some very insightful strategies for moving from being a good company to being a stellar company. Collins apparently did his research, talking to CEO’s and many other successful people for years. I especially like the idea of letting the employees all work together to create the company’s goals and methods. I am very glad I found this 30 Minute Expert book; it came at a crucial time in the evolution of my new business, and I believe I now have the best strategies for success.
