Welch (coauthor, Winning) here shares her simple yet sound strategy for making major life decisions: by first considering their impact in ten minutes, ten months, and ten years. She engagingly narrates this audio edition, presenting examples from her own life as well as from the lives of others. Welch's regular TV and radio appearances and her nationally syndicated columns (e.g., for BusinessWeek) make her a familiar face, voice, and name, so expect demand. A captivating book highly recommended for all.

"Suzy Welch sparkles with brilliant ideas. In "10-10-10" she offers a profound, easy-to-apply tool for making tough decisions simple, finding clarity amid life's confusions. If you're wondering what to do, which path to follow at the fork, whether to stay or leave -- no matter what it may be -- "10-10-10" will help you find your way."-- Daniel Goleman, author of "Emotional Intelligence"
Regular readers of O magazine might already be familiar with Welch's straightforward 10 minutes-10 months-10 years philosophy for making major life decisions. The former editor of the Harvard Business Review and current Business Week contributor expands on these guidelines, mixing in her own epiphanies. She has a winning reading manner and a pleasant voice, and while her tone clearly conveys an unmistakable confidence in the set of tools she's offering listeners, she never sounds like she's preaching (this is also helped by plenty of self-deprecating anecdotes that illustrate why she needed the system she developed and now shares with readers). The production is very clean and suits the material nicely; there's just a little music, and the direction of the reading feels perfectly paced. A Scribner hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 30). (Apr.)
