Jacked Up

The Inside Story of How Jack Welch Talked GE into Becoming the World’s Greatest Company

AUTHOR: Bill Lane

GENRE: Nonfiction

Does the world really need another book on Jack Welch? While the former GE CEO is an acknowledged superstar of the business world, he has written and been written about in so many books in this genre that regular visitors to bookstore business sections may find themselves growing weary. One thing’s for sure: if you’re going to write another book centered on Jack Welch, it better be good. Luckily, this volume doesn’t disappoint.

Written by Bill Lane, Welch’s speechwriter of 20 years, this book documents General Electric’s Welch years and offers general advice. While completely deferential to Welch, Lane is a great observer and writer, bringing the spirit of Welch’s GE tenure alive through anecdotes, conversation and details that reveal what strategies worked.
