What a pompous ass. A real Momma's boy. I worked at GE for 37 years. There is a special place in hell for this little jerk. And Jack, don't hide behind that fake Irish Catholic altar boy crap. God knows when it comes to humanity, and love for your fellow man, you fall into the C list. And you know where they go. This review is for all those workers and familys whose lives you destroyed. Rot in hell little man. Oh! The book was just like you, a little piece of crap. Which starts with C. All the money in the world will not buy you a place in heaven. This life is temporary. Eternity is forever.
Excellent book looking at a positive, constructive, and people-based business culture. His early life was fascinating, especially when he identifies moments that changed his fate. Some sections, specifically slogging through his years of deals as CEO, seemed to drag on forever with not a lot of added value to the book. Good read if you are interested in the philosophy behind the GE business model.
