Good to Great

April 13, 2008

In the past there have been a few football books that Ultimatenyg has recommended:

The GM by Tom Callahan
Sunday Morning Quarterback by Phil Simms
The Education of a Coach by David Halberstam

Today we add a fourth book to the Ultimatenyg Book List-
Good to Great by Jim Collins

What is a business book doing on a football blog’s reader’s list? Because this book is full of epiphanies about what makes a long term successful organization. There are principles in this book that the Giants use which drive their success. One of the most telling is the Greek Parable of the Hedgehog and the Fox. The Giants are certainly hedgehog and Daniel Snyder’s Redskins are all fox. There are lessons in here on all levels. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
