The chapter on leadership was very good and completely applicable to any time period. Where the book misses is in using specific company examples; a few of which are no longer around. I also thought there were too many charts and the appendix was a bit overwhelming - perhaps meant more for an academic textbook. It could become a classic with some editing- I so agree with the premise that most are comfortable with just being "good" - life is easier and more comfortable. The leap to great is more rare.
