Good for beginners

I would recommend this book to someone who has no or very little knowledge about business. Good read, but don't expect anything extraordinary.

Selling yourself the welch way

Overall the book is a promotion of today's keep up with the trends tome with several seeming product specific comments (dare I say commercials) in the first half of the book. It would make ok copy for distribution at one of their speaking engagements.

Worth the read

As a listener of about 80 books in this zone it has a few good nuggets to add to your brain. Winning is still my favorite from Jack and Good to Great by Jim Collins is always the top pick for this subject.

7 hour drive

After 30 years of leadership experiences I was refreshed by a very pragmatic and positive reminder of what I know, what I knew, and what had been forgotten. Read the book and listened to the audio as reinforcement. Outstanding
