How the Mighty Fall [1] is the book by Jim Collins that I'll never forget.

The lessons within remain top of mind as a key mental check that has stuck with me over the years. The book begins with a study on hubris and how your blindspots are like a cancer of mind that remain undetected while working to kill you long before their effects are known.

See Jim Collins' 2009 interview w/ Charlie Rose to get the gist and understand the context for how the book came to be: [video]
