9780446696357: The Mormon Way of Doing Business: How Eight Western Boys Reached the Top of Corporate America

The Founder of JetBlue. The former CEO of Dell Computers. The CEO of Deloitte & Touche. The former Dean of the Harvard Business School. They all have one thing in common. They are devout Mormons who spend their Sundays exclusively with their families, never work long hours, and always put their spouses and children first. How do they do it?

Critically acclaimed author and investigative journalist Jeff Benedict (a Mormon himself) examines these highly successful business execs and discovers how their beliefs have influenced them, and enabled them to achieve incredible success.With original interviews and unparalleled access, Benedict shares what truly drives these individuals, and the invaluable life lessons from which anyone can benefit.

About the Author:

Jeff Benedict is considered one of America's top investigative journalists. He has published several acclaimed books, including Out of Bounds (HarperCollins, 2004) and Pros and Cons (Warner, 1998). His work has also been published in the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times, among other publications, and he has appeared on ESPN, NBC Nightly News, CBS, 48 Hours, and ABC News.

From AudioFile:

An investigative journalist draws lessons from the lives and careers of Mormon leaders at organizations like Dell, American Express, and Harvard Business School. With obvious admiration, he explains the reasons for their success without dwelling on the high moral purpose in their lives. From their devotion to their families and church communities to their skill at managing disasters and negotiating tough agreements, their persistence and focus under pressure are impressive. Author Jeff Benedict's reading is remarkably professional. Without sounding dispassionate, he stands back from a story that could easily have tapped into his pride or righteousness as a devout Mormon. His audible humility conveys respect for the sensibilities of his audience as well as for these distinguished executives. T.W. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
