    Ed Whitacre is credited with taking over the corporate reins at General Motors (GM) when the automotive manufacturer was on the brink of bankruptcy during 2009 and turned the company around in magnificent fashion. In this business memoir, the native Texan explores his unique management style, business acumen and patriotism. It was President Obama who reached out to Ed Whitacre to come out of retirement and take over GM in 2009.

    What did you like best about this story?

    There are very few business boks that I would read again and again since the content and lessons they contain are are timeless. This is one of those books. Ed Whitacre's writing of this book and his reading and inflections in this audio book, made it so enjoyable I did not want the book to end. Ed Whitacre describes the use of common sense and down to earth values in successfully running two of the world's most recognized companies. For me, it was a very refreshing book from many other business or leadership books that preach a formula for success in the dog eat dog world of business. As Ed says, it all boils down to people.
