  • Business the Jack Welch Way. This new book traces the successful career-and uncovers the successful business strategies-of the man who's often called the most powerful CEO in America.

    What does he most value? How does he compare running gigantic GE to operating a corner grocery store? How did he transform this stodgy company into an exciting and dynamic one? And why is he lauded as a Renaissance man and yet nicknamed, pejoratively, neutron Jack? Readers will learn the answers to these questions (and plenty more) as the book unfolds the 10 key secrets of this incredible turnaround king.

  • Business the Jack Welch Way is part of a new series that charts the rise of business superstars Welch, Richard Branson, Bill Gates, and Rupert Murdoch. The Business Way Series looks at their deals, schemes, and dreams, revealing how each planned his career, crushed his competitors, and ended up on top. It supplies both a valuable insight into the ingredients of success and a concise source of important lessons for the next generation of winners.

    Library Journal
    Is there anything new to say about the four high-profile corporate executives featured in this series? The work of Dearlove and Crainer, two British business writers, suggests that there is not. Their texts consist of quotes from previous books and articles held together by statements that appear to have little to legitimize them. The authors give no indication of the source of their opinions, facts, and speculation. For each executive, there are ten "secrets" on which the analysis of his management style is based. Although the other three executives are referred to in each book, there is no attempt at comparative analysis. For example, for Murdoch, ruthlessness is cited as a secret of success, with the belief that "nice guys finish second." But Branson's common touch with customers and staff alike is the key to his popularity and success. Go figure. The quality of the writing is uneven and frequently repetitious, but there is an easygoing approach that makes all four books appealing for a quick read. Undergraduate term-paper writers and casual readers who have heard these names may appreciate the one-stop biography/management style content. Graduate students, businesspeople, and other specialists will pass on these books in search of more solid content.--Susan DiMattia, "Library Journal" Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
