I was disappointed that Mr. Welch neither wrote nor read the book. I was hoping to know more of the man. How in the world was it that he never made a mistake? How could he justify the obscene compensation perks?

Good, but dated

There is obviously some vintage Jack knowledge that can be absorbed from these cd's, but the material is a little outdated. If ideas like "boundylessness" and "work-out" are revolutionary for your company you are already a decade behind.
