Product Description

Review

"How timely! How needed it is for one of the finest human beings, industrial leaders and philanthropists on the planet to compellingly drill down on 10 timeless, universal values for business and life. This book edifies, inspires and motivates all of us to model these commonsensical lessons for our organizations, all our relationships and especially our posterity-for what is common sense is obviously not common practice.

Primary greatness is character and contribution. Secondary greatness is how most people define success-wealth, fame, position, etc. Few have both. Jon's one of them."

- Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author," The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People "and" The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness"

"This is easily the most courageous and personal business book since Bill George's "Authentic Leadership," If anyone has doubts about how one person can make a substantive difference in the world, this beautifully written book should dispell them immediately. I hope it's message is embraced worldwide."

-- Charles Decker, author, Lessons from the Hive: The Buzz for Surviving and Thriving in an Ever-Changing Workplace

"Jon Huntsman's new book ought to be mandatory reading for leaders--and those who aspire to be leaders--in every field. His secrets for success are no secrets at all, but invaluable lessons that he has reminded us, with his life and now with his words, are the pillars upon which we can build our lives, too."

--Senator Tom Daschle

"Jon Huntsman has taken us back to the basics---the basic values that transcend all professions and cultures. He has provided real life examples that are inspiring and show that 'good guys'; really canfinish first. And he shows us how you can learn from mistakes. It is a "must read" for both young men and women just stepping onto the golden escalator to success and anyone seeking reassurance that how one lives every day really does matter." -- Marsha J. Evans, President and CEO American Red Cross "As I read Jon's book, I thought my father had returned to tell me that you are either honest or you are dishonest, that there is nothing in between. 2 + 2 = 4, never 3.999 or 4.001. Also, if you always say what you believe, you don't need to have a good memory. If we could only live the principles Jon has followed, what a different world it would be--both in our business and personal relationships."

--Senator Jake Garn

"Jon's outlook on moral and ethical behavior in business should be inspirational to all who read this book. The lessons of fair play and holding true to personal moral values and ethics are time honored principals which are all too often overlooked in today's world. While this book is geared to those in business, I see it as worthwhile reading to anyone."

-- Rick Majerus, ESPN Basketball Analyst and legendary former basketball coach, The University of Utah

"A refreshing and candid discussion on basic values that can guide you from the sandbox to the board room --- told by a straight shooter."

-- Charles Prince, CEO Citigroup

"I can't put down the book after reading the first page. These are values universally cherished, whether in the United States, in China or elsewhere. A great and loving man emerges from the pages so vivid that he seems to talk to you face to face, like a family member. My life is richer and mind is broader after reading the book. Iam very proud of my friendship with Jon Huntsman." -- Yafei He, Director General Ministry of Foreign Affairs - China (Dept. of North American and Oceanic Affairs)

"Nothing could be more timely than this provocative book from one of America's foremost business and civic leaders about the urgent need for greater ethics in our public and private lives. With wit and clarity, Jon Huntsman shares his guidelines for living a life of integrity and courage. It is a wondeful tonic for much of what ails us today. Winners Never Cheat is a valuable handbook for anyone wanting to succeed in business, or life."

--Andrea Mitchell, NBC News

5.0 out of 5 stars Honesty & Integrity is the Winning Formula 3 Sep 2009
By Larry Underwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Jon M Huntsman is a humble & self effacing man who quietly goes about his business; and business is good. He's a self-made billionaire who knows that success is attainable through hard work, determination, and of course; through honesty, integrity and generosity.

This book captures Huntsman's vision of setting good examples for the rest of society, by consistently doing the right things. This is a man who builds trust through his actions, and helps those less fortunate with his contributions of time and money. In his mind, whatever success he's attained is irrelevent to the big picture; and that's making our planet a better place to inhabit.

I'm sure all of us, from time to time, have witnessed actions of people we once trusted that made us think otherwise; whether it be shaving a stroke off their golf game to avoid losing a few bucks, double crossing us on a business deal, or worse, sabotaging a career. Once the trust has been destroyed, everything else collapses with it.

Huntsman, on the other hand, with his remarkable philosophy on life, is a shining example that successful people are measured more by their basic core values as human beings, than their net worth. Some, if they're really good; possess the ability to do it all.

Huntsman clearly fits that bill; and we're all just a little bit better off because of it. This is a great book, written by a truly great man.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, just not enough 25 April 2009
By T. R. Turton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
After seeing Jon Huntsman on The Glenn Beck show, I knew I wanted to read this book and find out more about the man and his philosophy. I feel the book was worth the purchase price (especially because he donates the profits from the book), but I was a bit disappointed. I guess I expected more details regarding his life growing up and what shaped him. There were snippets, but not anywhere near enough. Also expected more details of his dealings in business, the ups and downs and how his values, honesty, and ethics carried him through. There were definitely a few examples, but if you've seen him on Glenn Beck, you've heard most of them probably.

Really wanted to be able to give this 5 stars, and I would give Mr Huntsman 5 stars for his standards in life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ethics at its finest! 20 Mar 2009
By D. Murawski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What a refreshing view of ethical business practices by one of the most down-to-earth men to ever be successful. Jon Huntsman is an inspirational figure who practices the basic human skill and desribes how we are born with these "sandbox" skills and ethical behaviors. Corporate America, WAKE UP!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some nice insight, good messages, not a great book, but worth reading 30 Nov 2010
By Jeff Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
While I agree with the main messages of the book, I found the first two chapters very preachy--authoritative-sounding declarations of right and wrong with no stories from his vast experiences to back them up. Right when I was about to stop reading, it started getting a little better. In chapter 3, he starts opening up a little more with stories from his own life. That is where I believe the true value of the book lies. In the end, I was satisfied that I got to know the author a little better, and I appreciated the messages he tried to promote in the book--integrity, ethics, morality, graciousness, philanthropy, pride of work, etc.

I also appreciated his explaining of the difference between playing hard ball in negotiations vs. integrity in negotiations. It's not necessarily about nice guys vs. mean guys. It's about operating with integrity and ethical behavior.

Like Huntsman, I have seen a lot of people who lack integrity and trustworthiness in business. It is refreshing to see successful people promoting honesty and integrity.

In the end I was glad I read the book, and I got value from reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Being morally right makes might - in more ways than you might think! 29 April 2009
By Rebecca Clement - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Many ethics courses taught at business and law schools across the country for the past decade or so have focused on the idea of "situational ethics" - a Machiavellian concept that supports no objective "right or wrong" only contextual circumstances that define "right and wrong" for a specific moment in time. While that may be interesting for theoretical discussions, it has little place in the real world and business leader Jon M. Huntsman would agree. In his breakthrough book titled - "Winners Never Cheat" - Huntsman point blank states that there are overriding moral principles that need to guide our work and lives. Huntsman is chairman and founder of the largest privately held chemical company in the world. He writes that he built his career and fortune on ethical principles including accountability; integrity; addressing the needs of others; honor; sacrifice; personal responsibility and teamwork. Soundview highly recommends this book because Huntsman provides many examples where he personally made difficult, moral decisions that (he argues) always turn out to be the right decision in the long run. Every organization would be well served by reading this book and putting it into practice.
