Rollicking insider's view of legendary GE CEO
, January 4, 2008
This review is from: Jacked Up: The Inside Story of How Jack Welch Talked GE into Becoming the World’s Greatest Company (Hardcover)
Few books are manage to be funny and informative--especially when the topic is business. I've read all the GE books and "Jacked Up" goes to the head of the class. Previous tomes about GE (either by Welch or business writers) were too concerned with buffing the legend's already glowing image. This insider's view revels in some of the rough edges at the same time it imparts some great tips that all of us can put to work. The author's thesis that communication was central to Welch's success certainly seems to be borne out by the plunge in the conglomerate's stock price that coincided with Welch's departure.
