Publisher's Summary

"Everyone does it". Everyone cheats. Cuts corners. Tells lies. Maybe it was different once. Not anymore. If you want to succeed nowadays, you have to make compromises. Right? Wrong. You can succeed at the highest levels, without sacrificing the principles that make life worth living. The proof? This audiobook.

Jon M. Huntsman built a $12 billion company from scratch, the old-fashioned way: with integrity. There were short-term costs. There were moments when it took great courage. But, ultimately, it wasn't just right; it was the best business strategy, too.

In Winners Never Cheat Huntsman tells you how he did it, and how you can, too. This audiobook is about remembering why you work, and why you were chosen to lead. It's about finding the bravery to act on what you know is right and building teams with the same courage. It's about winning. The right way.

Think about the kind of person you want to do business with. Then, be that person and use this audiobook to get you there.

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.

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?

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.

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.
