How Refreshing

Jon Huntsman should run for President of this Country. I am 58 years old and have always been told nice guys finish last. Jon puts that thought to shame. I have a new American Idol.

Simple message to do what is right

This is an excellent book on honesty and ethical behavior. The message is simple and clear - do what is right. If you start to rationalize your decision (e.g., it was a verbal agreement; they know it's not an obligation until a contract is signed), you know you're going against your values but trying to justify it. The author follows this simple ideology and demonstrates that you can be both honest and successful. You don't have to pay bribes to create a billion dollar company. You don't have to have lots lawyers to draw up complicated contracts so each company can protect itself from other's unscrupulous behavior. The author Jon Huntsman Sr. gives many stories about winning without cheating.

Top Five Business Book for CEO's

Would you consider the audio edition of Winners Never Cheat to be better than the print version?

Strongly recommend both print and audio. This is not a book you read only once or that you keep to yourself.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jon M. Huntsman is a corporate hero. If all CEO's were like Jon, no one could ever criticize capitalism.

What does Stow Lovejoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Stow speaks from the heart, reflecting Jon well.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

"A handshake should always be as binding as a signed legal document." ~ Jon Huntsman

Any additional comments?

Read this book! Listen to it! Read it again! Give it away! Create a corporate culture and family culture that reflects the principles in this book. This book receives my highest recommendation. How can I give more than five stars?
