The Outsiders: Eight Unconventional CEOs and Their Radically Rational Blueprint for Success

by Wojciech Adam Koszek   ⋅   Mar 3, 2017   ⋅   Menlo Park, CA

Great take on the strategy and operation of the greatest CEOs ever.

This book is an excellent take on the strategies of great CEOs. I don’t remember how I learned about it, but I believe it was The Snowball.

Most of people from this book were fairly unconventional, and against the per-book approach of management.

Great part of the book is a breakdown of capital allocation and capital preservation strategies.

Author did an excellent role in researching leaders who previously haven’t been covered in the literature. For example, the Henry Singleton of Teledyne is pretty mysterious, but his results were pretty impressive.
