Summary
Who ever said being nice would get you to the top?

Certainly not Alexandra Miles. She isn’t nice, but she’s more than skilled at playing the part. She floats through the halls of Spencer High, effortlessly orchestrating the actions of everyone around her, making people bend to her whim without even noticing they’re doing it. She is the queen of Spencer High—and it’s time to make it official.

Alexandra has a goal, you see—Homecoming Queen. Her ambitions are far grander than her small town will allow, but Homecoming is just the first step to achieving total domination. So when peppy, popular Erin Hewett moves to town and seems to have a real shot at the crown, Alexandra has to take action.

With the help of her trusted friend Sam, she devises her most devious plot yet. She’ll introduce an unexpected third competitor into the mix, one whose meteoric rise—and devastating fall—will destroy Erin’s chances once and for all. Alexandra can run a scheme like this in her sleep. What could possibly go wrong?

Lara Deloza’s crackling depiction of a perpetually two-steps-ahead popular girl makes for a fun, wicked story with a protagonist that readers will love to hate.

The book is worth listening to but not as valuable as many others. I didn't have a single ah-ha moment but did find a significant amount of helpful perspective. The advise and content may have been more useful to me if I were the CEO of a large corporation.

The reader on the audio book is painful to listen to... I couldn't even get through the first disc. I guess i'll stick with the print version on this one.

Full of great info but difficult to get through author's raspy voice at times

I typically like it when the authors read their own material, but Jack's voice just isn't cut out for audio books. I kept wanting to clear my own throat. If you can get past that though, the content is good and he has some great insights.

Jack Welch's voice sounds like Joe Pesci and was really hard to abide for the length of the unabridged version of this book. Content was great though. Recommended despite the South Boston language immersion experience.

One of the better business books I've read. I thought I'd get a lot of "Jack's way because I said so," but he put careful thought into many of the "whys" that forced me to question some of the "whys" of things I do at work. Given that, just like every business book it won't all be for you. My recommendation is rent it, if you find a lot you like in it, buy it at a Half Priced Bookstore and go to it with your highlighter like I did.

Jack Welch is at his best.....but is that good enough to make this book a "Winner?" ABSOLUTELY! Although the narration by Mr. Welch isn't exactly "pleasing to the ear." He's a bit raspy. If you can get by that, this entire audiobook is great and a "not to miss" book.

Highly entertaining. Of course there is no way that mere mortal workerbees can possibly relate to the industrially powerful and famous, but it is fun to hear horse stories from the horse's mouth.

This is one of the finest of Jack Welch's books. It is simple, direct and candid. This is not just a book for the American corporate place but for the entire business world. A lot of Japanese corporations could learn from him. With their management style that just stinks of a "Cult-Like" management style the Japanese could benefit.

I probably should have read straight from the gut first. That aside, it is clear why Jack Welch shot straight to the top. He address many of the pitfalls that managers see each day; the budgeting fiasco, lack of candor in the work place, and meaningful performance reviews to name a few. While there are many lessons for leaders of all ages, there are parts here and there that are informative, and provide a solid approach for the way things could be done, but aren't totally applicable until you are a CEO or a member of the executive staff. Overall, a solid, insightful read but unless your company's leadership is willing to adopt these practices...prepare to be frustrated on one hand and reassured on the other that there are some corporate officers out there that know how things should work. Now go make a difference, manager.

This is a first-rate book for people at any level of business. Having it read by Jack Welch makes it an entertaining listen. I work for a GE company and, from what I've seen, his approach works.

This was great! It's the first audio book that I've heard where I wanted to buy the book afterwards!

"Winning" provides the reader with the benefit of the business "takeaways" of Jack Welch's brilliant 40-year career. Concrete and actionable, many of the chapters took my vague suspicions of how the business world works & thinks and crystalized them into understandable pieces. Hearing Welch's distinctive voice narrate the book added to the experience and made the 9-cd set worth listening to.
