Book Review

Jack Welch on Leadership by Rober Slater

This book was ok. Personally I love Jack Welch and the things he stands for and what he did at GE. I have read "Straight from the Gut" and think it's an awesome book. This book though, just wasn't inspiring. It got across all of the main points, but it missed the point. Ultimately "Jack Welch on Leadership" is just of a summary of "Jack Welch and the G.E. Way". If you have the time, read the original. The stories are better and the whole book has a better flow to it. If you are looking for the Clif Notes version, read this, but don't read it like a book, just skim it looking for the bullet points. It's not worth devoting your time to a good read of the content.
