    Story
    "Excellent Book"
    If you could sum up Jack Welch and the GE Way in three words, what would they be?

    Informative, inspiring, educational


    What did you like best about this story?

    Although this is a book about Jack Welch and his career, it explains so much about business and people.


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

    Great to listen to. He isn't monotone, he tells the story not just read the words.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    From chapter 1 through chapter 21. I found myself going back chapters to re-listen, bookmark and take notes. I know that I'll be listening to this book many more times as I take my own journey in the business world.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read "listen" for anyone who wants to see how a professional does it.

    Story
    "Simplistic"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is the condensed version of Jack Walsh, not the full version. It is only 4.5 hours, so this is the abridged version of what took Jack 20 years.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Slater again?

    yes


    What about Michael Prichard’s performance did you like?

    yes

    "Avoid this one and choose others instead"

    There are many great Jack Welch books out there. This is not one of them. I didn't bother to finish it because there was no reason or need to do so.

    "Good business book, narrator a bit old fashioned"

    A good book, made a little harder to follow by the narrator. He has a somewhat stern approach to the narration which I found made it a little harder to follow.

    "Only one way - The GE way"

    I enjoyed every minute of listening to this book. Jack Welch is like Marmite - you either love him or hate him. However what he has done at GE is for the benefit of many. The GE way is a culture that we not fit all organisations but everyone will have something to take away from this book.
