Those answers are as good as a book "Winning" if not better. Fantastically straight-forward and understandable. Full of useful information and very important knowledge.

HASH(0x904bc2f4) out of 5 stars Read this book. It doesn't matter whether you read Winning. 4 Sept. 2007
By tim747 - Published on
Format: Paperback
Whether you read Winning or not, you should check out this book. I purchased a copy of Winning and due to the fact that I had it autographed by Jack and the book is pretty long, I have never read it. I listened to the audio version and found it had some valuable insights, but a lot of filler. (I have read Jack: Straight from the Gut and was impressed enough to join GE upon graduating college.)

If you like Jack and Suzy's column in Business Week, you will like Winning: The Answers. I was able to finish this book on a 3 hour flight. The book is formatted as concise 1-3 page answers to questions readers of Jack's other works have come up with.

The questions are grouped into the main categories of:
-Global competition (China!)
-Leadership (being a better boss)
-Management Principles and Practices (running a business to win / be successful)
-Careers ("On Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of a Promotion")
The above four categories take up ~200 pages.

The remaining two categories take up only ~40 pages: Privately Held, Winning and Losing.

New and old managers should find the chapters on Leadership, Management Principles, and Career progression very useful.

HASH(0x904bc354) out of 5 stars Continuation of "Winning" 20 Nov. 2009
By Maxim Masiutin - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a continuation of "Winning", published in 2005. If you've found "Winning" exciting and thought-provoking, you will like this book too, but to a lesser extent, since it reiterates or illustrates the philosophy laid down in "Winning", and doesn't add any groundbreaking idea of its own. Nevertheless, there are some interesting questions answered, for example how to work for a company run by a family.

This book continues the topic of interpersonal relations within an organization, the topic that was started by "Winning". Both of the books are not about execution or leadership, but about people and how they communicate with each other within an organization, regardless of rank or seniority. It can be applies to the front-line workers and to the bosses. But, nevertheless, we can see a slight shift of accents between the two books. While "Winning" is more dedicated to managers, "The Answer" is more dedicated to ordinary employees. But it doesn't mean that ordinary employees should not read "Winning" before reading "The Answers". Anyway, good books on interpersonal relations within an organization are very scarce. If you like this topic, I can recommend the books by Ronald Heifetz in addition to this book.

HASH(0x904bc78c) out of 5 stars Good Continuation 9 Jan. 2007
By R. Saling - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have the Book Winning in print and CD. After listening to it on CD, I had to get the print edition to write notes in the columns and use it as a reference along with his other book "The Four E's of Leadership". This book is a good contiuation of the conversation. If you are a student of successful leaders this book is worth the price. It gives a few more examples of real world situations.
HASH(0x904bc774) out of 5 stars The best 57 cents I that ever spent ! 6 Jun. 2011
By Roger Thompson - Published on
Luckily for me , the " Warehouse " in Rangiora (NZ) were biffing this book out for a princely 57 cents , brand new ! I had seen Jack & Suzy Welch on CNBC , and their writing is every bit as professional and useful , as their TV appearances are . ....
.... Anyone who has a boss , and that is most of us , will benefit from these 74 answers to genuine questions .

Got to order " Winning " , now !
HASH(0x904bc51c) out of 5 stars Easy to read, practical and commonsense advice- a very useful basic management book 28 Mar. 2013
By J. M. Fitzpatrick - Published on
This is a useful and inexpensive companion to "Winning"- it's straightforward and easy to read, with good ideas and examples.

It's an ideal short general management text, written by the renowned Jack Welch.

Also, it's more approachable than "Winning", which while it is easy to read and readily digestible, is a much longer and more comprehensive text.
