Interesting history of GE

Written by Anonymous from Basking Ridge, NJ on January 26th, 2005

  • Book Rating: 3/5

This was an interesting story, but it was a history lesson. The book did not include the details as to why and how some of Welch's decisions were made.

Not what I anticipated

I was hoping to learn some of Welch's strategies but the book is more of a history of GE. I anticipated a dry book but this was very dry.
