Excellent Book

If you could sum up Jack Welch and the GE Way in three words, what would they be?

Informative, inspiring, educational

What did you like best about this story?

Although this is a book about Jack Welch and his career, it explains so much about business and people.

What does Michael Prichard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great to listen to. He isn't monotone, he tells the story not just read the words.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

From chapter 1 through chapter 21. I found myself going back chapters to re-listen, bookmark and take notes. I know that I'll be listening to this book many more times as I take my own journey in the business world.

Any additional comments?

A must read "listen" for anyone who wants to see how a professional does it.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is the condensed version of Jack Walsh, not the full version. It is only 4.5 hours, so this is the abridged version of what took Jack 20 years.

Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Slater again?


What about Michael Prichard’s performance did you like?
