Superficial, with a capital 'S'
The real synopsis of this book is: 'I'm great. I solved every problem. Everything bad was just a misunderstanding.' Anyone with real business experience will recognize this as a puff-piece. Lots of great things happened at GE because of Jack Welch, no doubt. But the dark side of layoffs, divestures and bad investments are papered-over. The environmental nightmare GE caused by dumping PCBs into the Hudson river (on Jack's watch) was conveniently forgotten, for example. If you want a to read a self-serving valentine, read this book. If you want real management insight, look elsewhere.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
