John Greig: My Story
By John Greig
Nicknamed 'the Ledge' on account of his legendary status, John Greig has been voted the greatest Ranger of all time by the fans and his statue stands outside Ibrox. His achievements speak for themselves: numerous Scottish Championships and Cups, captain of the successful European Cup-Winners' Cup side of 1972 and the only member of three Treble-winning sides. He also captained his country, winning 44 caps for Scotland. In 1978 he moved from the dressing room to the Rangers manager's office where he enjoyed Cup sucesses but never quite reached the heights he achieved as a player. Here he recounts the highs and lows of his career and relives classic moments on the pitch and numerous off-the-pitch antics with both club and country.

By Jack Welch
Jack Welch was perhaps the greatest corporate leader of the 20th century. When he first became CEO of General Electric in 1981 the company was worth $12 billion. Twenty years later it is worth a total of $280 billion. But Welch was more than just the leader of the most successful business in the world. He revolutionised GE's entire corporate culture with his distinctive, highly personal management style: the individual appreciation of each of his 500 managers, the commitment to an informal but driven work style and the encouragement of candour were all part of the Welch approach. Following John Harvey Jones's Making it Happen and Troubleshooter, Jack has already become the businessman's bible for the 21st century - an inspiration for a new generation of corporate players.
