Jack Welch is perhaps the greatest corporate leader of the 20th century. When he first became CEO of General Electric in 1981 the company was worth $12 billion. Twenty years later it is worth a total of $280 billion. But Welch is more than just the leader of the most successful business in the world. He has revolutionised GE's entire corporate culture with his distinctive, highly personal management style: the individual appreciation of each of his 500 managers, the commitment to an informal but driven work style and the encouragement of candour are all part of the Welch approach. Following John Harvey Jones's MAKING IT HAPPEN and TROUBLESHOOTER, JACK is set to become the businessman's bible for the 21st century - an inspiration for a new generation of corporate players.… (mere)

I found it interesting that while he was growing up he was already used to leadership, he was quarterback in Jr. High, and several other leadership positions. ( )

It's hard to think of a CEO that commands as much respect as Jack Welch. Under his leadership, General Electric reinvented itself several times over by integrating new and innovative practices into its many lines of business. In Jack: Straight from the Gut, Welch, with the help of Business Week journalist John Byrne, recounts his career and the style of management that helped to make GE one of the most successful companies of the last century. Beginning with Welch's childhood in Salem, Massachusetts, the book quickly progresses from his first job in GE's plastics division to his ambitious rise up the GE corporate ladder, which culminated in 1981. What comes across most in this autobiography is Welch's passion for business as well as his remarkable directness and intolerance of what he calls "superficial congeniality"--a dislike that would help earn him the nickname "Neutron Jack." In spite of its 496 pages, Jack: Straight from the Gut is a quick read that any student or manager would do well to consider. Highly recommended. --Harry C. Edwards ( )

Jack Welch: Business man's god, tough-talker, golden-parachutist, steely-eyed capitalist with a PhD. Yes the man has a hypertrophied frontal cortex, but he shoots straight from the gut. (Which phrase, oddly enough, makes me think of projectile vomiting.) Somewhere, because of this review's snarky tone, Jedediah Purdy is weeping. Sorry, Jed. ( )

Although I liked this book, I also found it unsettling.
It is indisputable that Mr. Welch achieved phenomenal success as a businessman.
But throughout the book, I kept wondering "Where is his family?" "What about his faith?"
Mr. Welch and those around him apparently lived and breathed business 24/7 for most of their lives and achieved what they believe to be "success." While that life certainly doesn't appeal to me, I guess I'm glad that there are people who are willing to work that hard to create products and services that benefit me and others.
On a side note, I had to snicker when Mr. Welch kept emphatically stating his commitment to "integrity." Anyone familiar with how his second marriage ended knows that he has problems in that area. ( )

This book had very little insight into the author's thought and decision processes and was more of a complete history of General Electric and it's executive team during the reign of Jack Welch. I would not recommend this book for someone that is not intimately familiar with General Electric and its major players. ( )
