    It Worked for Me is filled with vivid experiences and lessons learned that have shaped the legendary career of the four-star general and former Secretary of State Colin Powell. At its heart are Powell's "Thirteen Rules" - such as "Get mad, then get over it" and "Share credit" - that introduce his principles for effective leadership: conviction, hard work, and, above all, respect for others. A natural storyteller, Powell offers warm and engaging parables with wise advice on succeeding in the workplace and beyond.

    Where does It Worked for Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's one of the better audio books I've purchased. Sometimes your excited to get a book but after listening for for a while you become disappionted. Not the case with this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It Worked for Me?

    I enjoyed listening to his thirteen rules and how he appiled them.


    Have you listened to any of Colin Powell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first book of his I have ever listened to. He dose a great job of with the performance. I would not have gotten the book if he ( Colin Powell ) did not read it himself, nor would I have enjoyed so much.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the old jewish tot shop owner pulled a young Colin aside and informed him that he, Colin, would not be inheriting the shop one day. The jewish imigrant told colin that he had to much potential to run a toy store. Although, Colin had no aspirations to run the store, he appreciated that a mentor would pull him aside to tell him he had value.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the few audio books I've listened to more than once.
