    1. Очень странная книга, т.к. идентицифировать её жанр удаётся только ближе к середине-концу текста. Во-первых (и в большей степени), это типичные такие стариковские мемуары о тех временах, когда и пиво слаще было, и девки добрее были, и сами мы - ого-го! - какими рысаками себя проя [...]

    2. What I did not expect when reading this book was the abundance of information and advice Lane provides with regard to effective communications. Because I hold Jack Welch in high regard, I was delighted to be able to tag along with Lane as he and Welch worked closely together on various projects. However, I also thoroughly appreciate what Lane shares when discussing what he has learned about public presentations, written communications, and (yes) collaborating with egomaniacs such as Welch who co [...]

    3. Jack Welch is considered the greatest CEO of his generation (or possibly EVER, depending who you listen to); Bill Lane was Welch’s speechwriter for the two decades Welch was leading GE. This book is Lane’s attempt at providing us insights learned from his time directing the communications of the CEO who transformed corporate communications – at least that is what Lane would have you believe is the importance of this book. Only a few pages in, Lane shares an anecdote from his retirement par [...]

    4. Revealing look at charismatic speaker Jack Welch Jack Welch was the most famous CEO in the U.S. when he ran General Electric. During the Welch era (1981–2001), GE’s value skyrocketed, making millionaires of employees with stock options. CEOs across the globe adopted Welch’s strategies for streamlining operations, reducing payrolls and dominating markets. Welch retired superrich (current estimated net worth: $720 million) – not bad for a short, stumpy, middle-class guy with a lifelong stu [...]

    5. I couldn't finish this one. It was a lot of the same over and over. The first 150 pages were good. There are some good anecdotes and it's interesting to see corporate America up close. But the writer frequently references stories that he doesn't tell and doesn't finish his points which is annoying.

    6. If you want to learn more about how Jack Welch changed GE through communications, this is an easy to read summary from the guy who worked as his manager of executive communications. Worthwhile reading for anyone who works in communications.

    7. На самом деле, у меня русский перевод этой книжки - издательство Манна и кого-то там еще. Книга содержит три полезных мысли, которые всем известны, но здесь еще раз проиллюстрированы. А так - скучно, никому не порекомендую.Могу отдать свой экземпляр, если кому-то интересно.

    8. Interesting stories about an amazing time of growth at one of the world's biggest companies. The book provides practical advice for everyone about business communications.

    9. A fair bit. Necessary for dealing with people in a group. Definately not a waste of time. More suited to high-power CEO's.

    10. One of my favorite looks inside a company led by an interesting, driven personality. Also a great lesson on how good communication is vital to success, and why it's harder than it looks.
