    In this interview, Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric, talks to Jane Friedman, President and CEO of HarperCollins Publishers, about his new book, Winning. Jack describes how he went about writing this book with his wife, Suzy Welch, why he chose to write it now, and how the business world has changed during his legendary career.

    Donn Edwards says: "A Good Interview"
    "Nothing about Winning, everything about Jack"
    Overall

    This audio book is a long winded boast about all of Jack's accolades managing GE and contains an accumulation of vague examples of how his experiences managing GE could some how apply to your life (in which he makes very weak connections). The only practical advice he gives comes in the last chapter, when he advises how to advance your career by stating the obvious, corporate ladder brown nosing. Get your direct manager to look good so that when he/she gets promoted, you'll get your promotion. Unless you’d like to support Jack’s retirement, don’t get it, save your credit for something that is more coherent. I'd give it zero stars to bring down it's over inflated rating.

    Jack Welch knows how to win. During his 40-year career at General Electric, he led the company to year-after-year success around the globe, in multiple markets, against brutal competition. His honest, be-the-best style of management became the gold standard in business, with his relentless focus on people, teamwork, and profits.

The marketing efforts for this book are about the only thing that I commend.
