American Turnaround

Audiobook

A down-to-earth, patriotic, no-nonsense Texan with a distinctive twang in his voice, Ed Whitacre is that rare CEO with great charisma and extraordinary management instincts. Before being pulled out of retirement to run General Motors by President Obama, Ed Whitacre had spent his entire corporate career in the telecom business, where he ultimately ended up running AT&T. American Turnaround is Whitacre's business memoir of his time as a top corporate executive, complete with his insights into effective management—demonstrated by his hands-on approach to turning GM into a profitable enterprise once again. GM's rebound under Whitacre is considered by most to be nothing short of miraculous, with the company repaying its government bailout in record time. Whitacre's "roll up your sleeves and let's get to work" spirit has won the admiration and respect of executives and employees throughout the business world. American Turnaround is a true clarion call to return to "good ol' American know-how."
