Having been an employee at a F500 company, I found the way he thinks is consistent with upper management at most large corporations. For example, people who are enthusiastic and maybe drink the Kool Aid are the ones who get promoted.
It's also a good motivational book. He doesn't just talk about how the P.H.d's like himself get promoted, but how average Joe's can differentiate themselves.
Often times, like dealing with a bad boss, he tells the truth and bluntly tells you your options.
As with all books that give advice, what works for Jack might not work for you. But if you are looking to get "Corporation CEO 101", you could do worse than "Winning."
As to his discussion on personal careers, I found my self losing interest. It is hard to take a man that never worked for another company too seriously on this subject. I wouldn't say that there is no value in this section of the book; it just doesn't merit the same attention.
Overall, it is mandatory reading for today's CEO.
