Reviews

"Gryta and Mann tell a bracing tale of corporate venality, incompetence, and shortsighted dealmaking, showing how one man--former CEO Jeff Immelt--hollowed out GE until all that was left was its myth. It's a parable with no heroes, but many lessons for anyone who wants to know how 21st Century corporate management, which venerates stock price above all other measures of value, has gone so disastrously awry."

-- "New York Magazine"
A gripping and deeply reported account of the devastating disintegration of one of the most iconic firms ever to exist. To all of us shocked by GE's seemingly abrupt fall from grace, this book lays out in painful detail how such a thing could have happened.-- "Rita McGrath, Columbia Business School, author of Seeing Around Corners: How to Spot Inflection Points in Business Before They Happen "Gryta and Mann tell a bracing tale of corporate venality, incompetence, and shortsighted deal-making.
