Review:

“[Gerstner] entertains as he educates.” (New York Times Book Review)

“A well-rendered self-portrait of a CEO who made spectacular change on the strength of personal leadership.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Effective, to the point...Louis V. Gerstner Jr deserves his place in the management hall of fame.” (Financial Times)

“The best business book I’ve ever read.” (Imus in the Morning)

“[Lou Gerstner] has the substance of a genuine and ... interesting story.” (Wall Street Journal)

From the Publisher:

When Louis V. Gerstner became CEO of IBM in 1993, shares had slumped and the company was on the verge of collapse. Hired for his successful management of RJR Nabisco and American Express, Gerstner had no background in technology, but during his seven-year chairmanship, he transformed the company into the leading force of the computer age.
Revealing his tactics step-by-step, Gerstner spins an engaging narrative that takes the reader behind the curtain into the unbelievable mess he inherited and into the office and mind of a CEO facing a challenge of a lifetime.
