Know what ‘regression to the mean is’? If so no need to pick up this book

Interestingly criticises Jim Collins’ Good to Great arguing is statistical chance is reason for success mainly by following up the companies as finds many no longer great companies. Does not state that the CEOs remained the same, which was the point of Good to Great which focuses on the leader, not the company.  The one I checked he used as a failing company, the great leader had left prior to failing. Thought provoking, but if you already know what regression to the mean is give this a pass.
