The companies this book glorifies...have virtually all FAILED spectacularly following their business models since publication.
Fannie Mae is praised constantly for gambling in the capital markets with Wallstreet...how did that work out in 2008?!
Walgreens gained market share as a "hedgehog"...then became a bloated celebrity-obsessed Leftist corporation and enabled THERANOS!
Wells Fargo abandoned the safe banking model after deregulation... "hedgehog"...then started robbing their customers, and engaging in massive fraud...then the executive class threw local managers under the bus and escaped with their parachutes..
Circuit city focused on quality delivery experience..."hedgehog"...then they sat there and rotted away and were obliterated by the internet.
The list goes on. Don't buy this book.
