Reviews - What do customers think about What the Best CEOs Know: 7 Exceptional Leaders and Their Lessons for Transforming Any Business?

What the Best CEO's Know  May 2, 2008
An excellent encapsulation of real life situations and how to approach them. It affirms the good things a CEO might be doing now and offers great tips for how to possibly add a bit more cutting edge. Easy to read, easy to apply, entertaining, applicable. A real delight to read.
Sorry, but I have not recieved the book yet ((((  Jan 9, 2007
Sorry, but I have not recieved the book yet ((((
Stories on renowned CEOs  Jan 27, 2006
A good book with summaries of the achievements of the few best CEOs in the corporate world.
Too condensed  May 10, 2005
Breezed through the book in 3 hours. To some extent it captures the main points. However, one would have a more wholesome experience by reading each of the individual books.
Condensed Books Version of Leading CEO Philosophies  Mar 17, 2004
If you have already read books by or about Michael Dell, Bill Gates, Lou Gerstner, Andy Grove, Herb Kelleher, Jack Welch and Sam Walton, you will probably think this is a two star book. If you are unfamiliar with any of these gentleman and their companies, you will find this book to be a helpful introduction that can direct you to more detailed reading on subjects that interest you.

What's new about this book is that Mr. Krames positions thought experiments in the sections about each CEO so you can address a business problem . . . and compare your answers to those the CEOs might have supplied. These are a cinch if you have read about the people involved, and are otherwise quite challenging. There are also helpful questions to test your organization's current applications of the concept at the end of each CEO's chapter.

What's not new about the book is any information that hasn't been written before about what the CEOs did in their own companies. I cannot remember seeing anything that I hadn't seen already. As a result, the book serves as a condensation of past learning. That's helpful for those who read little and have limited time. I didn't detect too many problems with the material. The consistent pattern of misfocus was concentrated in not in explaining enough about the context for the ideas. All of Jack Welch's big theme ideas were borrowed (as Mr. Krames points out for Sam Walton), and Mr. Welch was often quite late in picking up on and applying those ideas. Many of the initiatives in expanding service at IBM were well underway before Lou Gerstner arrived. I graded the book down one star for these slight misfocuses.

If you have the time, there's a better book either by or about each person than this one. Feel free to go to the better source!

As I finished the book, I began to realize that much study of great leaders is influenced by the size of their success . . . rather than the size of their accomplishment. If we were looking at leaders who had made great transformations, we would also be reading about Millard Fuller at Habitat for Humanity International, Jack Bogle at Vanguard, Mike Ruettgers at EMC, Richard Reese at Iron Mountain, Rob McEwen at Goldcorp, and Bernard Liautaud at Business Objects. I wonder what it will take before studies of best practices turn to those who are best at those practices.
