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.

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.

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

Ethic is the key to success

Books is missing many chapters

Great but missing too many chapters to enjoy. At several point in mid sentence it announce the begining of a new chapter skipping 2-3 chapters in between.

Values & Generosity

I applaud Mr Huntsman. He sets a great example for leaders; unfortunately, it is very difficult for us qualified 'nice guy's' to advance in established organizations. That would be a welcome topic.

tl;dr - be kind, we’re all in this together

The core lesson is sound, however this book could be written in a two pager format.
