Bottom Line And Nothing But....

by exmasher on Oct 5, 2007

I picked up this book because I thought it would be good to know something about someone who has won high acclaim as a CEO. Normally I at least get warm, fuzzy feelings of admiration when reading of someone who has fought through adversity to make it to the winner's circle. One problem...this is a book about leadership and it's impossible to get on that subject without things like loyalty and integrity coming up. He has some good things to say, no doubt. But I would have a hard time following a boss who didn't have the self discipline to leave the room when he first realized he was in danger of cheating on his wife. So intead of savoring what he had to offer I found myself spitting out a lot of bones. Still worth a quick read, but don't expect too much.

In this biography, Jack Welch talks about his family and how from a college grad and working all the way up to be the GE's chairman, how he dealt with office politics, and a little about hislove life, the deals he has made and the new management principles he helped founded that completely revolutinized GE as the world's biggest company by share market.
