    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.

    Jean says: "Great Story Teller"
    "Best book I have listened to in a long time."

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

    I normally listen to Sci-Fi books, but I am ex military and wanting to move up into a leadership role at work. Mr. Powell has always been a role model for me so I thought I would take a listen to his book. I was pleasantly surprised that he is the narrator of this book. By far this is now my favorite book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Busy Bastards, because my work is full of them. They are not who you think. Read the book.


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

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would love to have the time to sit down and hear this book all at one time. His answers fit perfectly into the military mantra that is already installed within me. I have listened to parts over already because I was in awe of how he expanded to deal with a situation.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Powell’s book is a great read for any veteran that is transitioning into the “real world”.
