This was the bible of my previous company, and we were all given a copy on joining. Took me almost 8 years to pick it up and read it though!
Not a bad read, although its again on topics I don't usually read or know much about. It basically traces companies which have 'stood the test of time' so to speak, and are still around to make their presence felt. The authors have tried to find commonalities in these companies which were built to last.
Its a decent read.
