    "Good Read"

    I like the fact that this book had a scenario for each topic discussed. The way it was explained could actually be visualized.

    I recommend this book to anyone who desires to be an entrepreneur or in any type of leadership role.

    "Rings true."

    I found myself agreeing again and again with Welch, often while hearing him describe one of my own development needs. Filled with clear and succinct advice.

    Story
    "Narrated by Mayor Quimby"

    The best part about listening to this book at 3x speed in the Audible app is that it sounds like it is being narrated by Mayor Quimby from The Simpsons.

    Overall this is pretty good. There isn't a hugely cohesive flow from one chapter to the next, but Jack Welch's style is open and friendly, so it is easy to shift gears.

    The topics range from career advice, to how to manage teams, to business strategy, and work-life balance. Not everything will be applicable to all readers, but it is entertaining to listen to and overall quite well-written and well-narrated.

    "I Win"
    Where does Winning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In my TOP 5 Books


    What other book might you compare Winning to and why?

    21 Refutable Laws of Leadership by John C Maxwell. Why? Winning presents a clear, concise and encouraging view from the man who not only wrote the book, he believes and he lives it.


    Which character – as performed by Jack Welch – was your favorite?

    No favorite character


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

    Mr. Welch's passion throughout the book moved me.


    Any additional comments?

    WINNING is a win-win book for every business leader worldwide. I appreciate and embrace the advise offered and I am thankful to the writer's for his ability to articulate with undeniable clarity and candor. For many years, I found myself in several of the situations he mentioned. It was hard for me to be open due to fear of being sliced down for my ideas; and, when I did offer my ideas, those ideas became someone else who went on to great success. I then had to make clear choices to reassessed and take immediate action to get myself moving again. I loved Mr. Welch's personal story and I could relate to the areas of his story of making some bad business choices and hiring bad people. After reviewing their resumes, I thought those people looked to be the best; they turned out to be draining and offered little results. When I first began reading Winning, I felt I was operating in the 70% margin. I finished listening to Winning on yesterday and my life and business are on the move, in a good direction with a whole new passion for winning, thank God. One final favorite statement made by the writer was the statement: 'to be a leader you must be able to energize people...' OMG! I cannot agree! And though this statement has been around for years, hearing it said again encouraged me greatly.

    I loved the book Winning and plan to listen to it again hopefully before end of year. Why? Just because its a great book with great insight.

    p.s. My desire, I would sure like to meet the man that has gone on to energize millions. If you can make that happen, I'd be more than grateful. Yesssss!
