    The book is worth listening to but not as valuable as many others. I didn't have a single ah-ha moment but did find a significant amount of helpful perspective. The advise and content may have been more useful to me if I were the CEO of a large corporation.

    Great supplement and audio version to my class at JWMI.

    The reader on the audio book is painful to listen to... I couldn't even get through the first disc. I guess i'll stick with the print version on this one.

    Full of great info but difficult to get through author's raspy voice at times

  • Patti

    I typically like it when the authors read their own material, but Jack's voice just isn't cut out for audio books. I kept wanting to clear my own throat. If you can get past that though, the content is good and he has some great insights.

  • David Mc

    Jack Welch's voice sounds like Joe Pesci and was really hard to abide for the length of the unabridged version of this book. Content was great though. Recommended despite the South Boston language immersion experience.

    You get a real feel about business and its stucture. Jack is great!

    One of the better business books I've read. I thought I'd get a lot of "Jack's way because I said so," but he put careful thought into many of the "whys" that forced me to question some of the "whys" of things I do at work. Given that, just like every business book it won't all be for you. My recommendation is rent it, if you find a lot you like in it, buy it at a Half Priced Bookstore and go to it with your highlighter like I did.

    Jack Welch is at his best.....but is that good enough to make this book a "Winner?" ABSOLUTELY! Although the narration by Mr. Welch isn't exactly "pleasing to the ear." He's a bit raspy. If you can get by that, this entire audiobook is great and a "not to miss" book.
