really liked it

Bo Burlingham offers an attractive handful of examples of small successful companies, along with their stories, culture and way of working.

Compared to large companies, the small companies described appear in a romantic light.

This happens due to the leaders' motivation towards more than financial gain, and rather towards:
- the personal growth and wellbeing of employees
- a quality product
- flexibility, comfort and peace of mind with running a tight, manageable business

It is important to be noted that the second edition of the book offer a small amount of extra information by revisiting the small companies described in the first edition and showing how difficult it was to maintain the small company culture due to: growth, bankruptcy, culture change, management change.
