    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.

    What made the experience of listening to It Worked for Me the most enjoyable?

    The book had a good flow from start to finish, I found myself compelled from one section to another.


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

    The humility and quality of the material presented gave it credence. So often books like this feel contrived and I didn't get that impression from Mr. Powell at all.


    What does Colin Powell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The fact that Colin Powell read his own work gave it a credibility that I think would be difficult for an actor reading the same material.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the book much more than I expected to.
