I really enjoyed this book and the long term (Infitnite) view of business and managing that it espouses, versus the short term (finite) game that many leaders, and Wall Street often focus on. The anecdotal stories used to reinforce the principles are interesting and timely. The book aligns well with the Manager Tools philosophy, I believe. I looked for signs of my company within the book and was happy that, more often than not, it felt like Senior Management here and our culture is on the right track. All the same, I'll be sharing this book with my peers.
Simon tends to be much more big picture and aspirational in terms of what ought to change whereas MT provides concrete, actionable recommendations for what we can do immediately. That said, it's very much on the same continuum and worth a read.
The idea that we don't "win" at business and that we should be focused on long-term sustainability is simple, elegant, and powerful.
