    Story
    "Simple message to do what is right"

    This is an excellent book on honesty and ethical behavior. The message is simple and clear - do what is right. If you start to rationalize your decision (e.g., it was a verbal agreement; they know it's not an obligation until a contract is signed), you know you're going against your values but trying to justify it. The author follows this simple ideology and demonstrates that you can be both honest and successful. You don't have to pay bribes to create a billion dollar company. You don't have to have lots lawyers to draw up complicated contracts so each company can protect itself from other's unscrupulous behavior. The author Jon Huntsman Sr. gives many stories about winning without cheating.

    "How Refreshing"

    Jon Huntsman should run for President of this Country. I am 58 years old and have always been told nice guys finish last. Jon puts that thought to shame. I have a new American Idol.

    "Ethic is the key to success"

    Family, charity and business all require high level of ethics in order to truly be successful and Jon reminds us of this as he walks us through the ups and downs of his life.

    "One of the best books on Leadership and Integrity"

    Great book with life lessons on leadership and integrity and how to keep focus on the long term and never settling on basic principles of life. Must read.

    Story
    "A bit disappointing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. If someone really wants to read/listen, they should get this from the library.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Not sure it is fixable since it is autobiographical.


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

    Nothing that I can think of.


    What did you take away from Winners Never Cheat that you can apply to your work?

    There were a few either novel or interesting points.


    Any additional comments?

    The analogies were certainly dated and most not that compelling. For a person that prided himself for fairness, it is interesting that Mr. Huntsman choose to name so many names and cast others in a negative light. The streams of platitudes got tiresome for me. While I'm sure Mr. Huntsman is as great as he and others think he is, his story is probably better captured in an article or chapter and not as the subject for an entire book.

    Story
    "I hold this man in high esteem"
    Where does Winners Never Cheat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks among the tops ones. It has encouraged me to give out more and more, I also made a list of things while listening to the last chapter, and then packed them to give them away for those more in need than I am.


    What other book might you compare Winners Never Cheat to and why?

    I would compare the religious scriptures to this book, as the morals taught in this book are as high as those that are taught by the holiest of books.


    Which character – as performed by Stow Lovejoy – was your favorite?

    N/A


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

    I would have to take my time with this book, it requires one to pause and think and then take some action over what has been said. It is a good book for teenagers, students, parents, teachers, professionals, and those who are wondering what to do what the things they have, or how to reduce the clutter around them, and how to attain more peace and spirituality.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first author that I have heard who holds all religions in equal esteem and regards, and I thank him for that.

    Story
    "Top Five Business Book for CEO's"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Winners Never Cheat to be better than the print version?

    Strongly recommend both print and audio. This is not a book you read only once or that you keep to yourself.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jon M. Huntsman is a corporate hero. If all CEO's were like Jon, no one could ever criticize capitalism.


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

    Stow speaks from the heart, reflecting Jon well.


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

    "A handshake should always be as binding as a signed legal document." ~ Jon Huntsman


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book! Listen to it! Read it again! Give it away! Create a corporate culture and family culture that reflects the principles in this book. This book receives my highest recommendation. How can I give more than five stars?

    Story
    "Entertaining"
    What made the experience of listening to Winners Never Cheat the most enjoyable?

    I had heard about Jon Huntsman, but never knew much about him. This was a great story about his life and the work he has done in his life.


    What other book might you compare Winners Never Cheat to and why?

    I would compare this to "How to win friends and Influence People." This book relates the way to carry yourself in business and life. Talks about how to stay true to yourself and your knowledge of right and wrong and how this will influence your life for the better.


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

    How Jon was awarded a scholarship to go to school.

    Faith in Humanity

    Clear voice and intonation.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Business isn't all bad (I knew that but couldn't point to a role model).
