The book, “Winning” was published back in 2005 and this sparked off a deluge of questions from college students, professionals, entrepreneurs and people from all walks of life on subjects ranging from leadership and globalization, to tough bosses and teamwork. This book: “Winning: The Answers – Confronting 74 of the toughest questions in business today” contains some of the most relevant of questions asked. As Jack Welch on his website emphasizes: Winning is great!

Recommends it for: MBA guys
Shelves: leadership
Book contains very good brief answers for Frequently Asked Questions by many people (businessmen, students, analysts etc.,). This will be very much useful for MBA students since these are matching to present scenario than the academic book case discussions. Quite good. REcommend to everyone who pursues Business, Marketing, Finance etc., Also for first line of managers who are in with market.
sure, this book has tons of great tips and advice on how to manage working in companies of all types however it's not really a book that you read cover to cover.

it's more of a resource book that you reference from time to time. Reading it from cover to cover will certainly be a boring read
Rajiv Bhattacharya
An excellent book covering a lot of diverse topics in business right from being a leader to career advice.Chapters are short and to the point. A very good read for working professionals
Lori Grant
A must-read autobiograpy on leadership for knowledge workers, managers, directors, C-levels, and entrepreneurs.
Answers a broad range of questions. It was a very quick read as only bits and pieces were pertinent to my needs.
Such a helpful book for all the level of workers. You can feel that ypu are not alone and have power for facing up.
