Jack has outdone himself. His first book was great; repleat with stories of his experiences at GE. This new book surpasses it, and all the other business "self-improvement" books in print. This book does not merely give "window dressing" with a littiny of "war stories". It is a virtual "Bible" of strategies, tips, and lessons on how to deal with the most difficust business crises, problems, and stressful circumstances. It looks at these problems not only from management or company admin; but also from the eyes and views of the individual employees as well. He takes you through hiring, finding the right job, handling the difficult boss; handling difficulties of mergers and acquisitions, both from the acquiree's and aquireror's perspectives. He addresses the problems of how businesses enter into new product or service areas, both by start up, or by acquisition. He teaches the do's and don'ts of both. He talks candidly about "six sigma" the uses and non-uses of the program; why it works, why it doesen't. He talks about the difficult decisions to "fire", when to "cut bait" with a poor performing employee (and how to do it gracefully). He also addresses real business situation problems form the employee's standpoint-- how to deal with demotion, non-promotion, or outright termination. It is clearly the best business book around, it will be an all time classic in the business world. And, to top things off, Jack reads this in his own voice, with his unique brand of enthusiasm, energy, positive attitude, magic, "PMA" whatever you want to call it. Impressive.
