This from the May 9, 2005 issue of Forbes:

On Charlie Rose's TV show ex-General Electric boss Jack Welch said Winning, his new book with new wife Suzy Welch, was better than his previous book, Jack: Straight from the Gut, with now-Fast Company editor John Byrne. Left unsaid: Straight sold 3 million copies. Welch tells FORBES he "misspoke," calling Byrne a "great collaborator." But Welch said he does favor Suzy, laughing, "Now why would I say that?"

Jack had it right the first time. Winning is the better book. At the same time, I am not sure we would blame John Byrne for what happened the first book.
