Towers of Power

Built to Last is a rigorous analysis of “visionary companies” – industry leaders that uphold dominance for 100 or more years, across multiple generations and product cycles. Collins uses this book to explain the reasons why some companies last throughout the ages, while others falter and fade away. I liked reading this book because it debunked all the myths I had of what made a company successful. It is not a how-to book. It is not suggesting recipes for how to succeed. Rather it explains what visionary companies did differently than control group companies with a truly robust amount of research. The central message of this book is that hard work and perseverance matters so much more than genius. A great company is not an overnight success as we are trained to think but it is rather years of patiently building a product.
