The prestigious Kirkus Reviews called the book “a motivational objet d’art that is both aesthetically pleasing and thought provoking.” Tom has poured through 43 years of work and found over 100 game-changing quotes from stellar “on the ground” performers that—if assiduously studied and implemented—will turn your world upside down. The book’s ultimate character, he says, is its design—courtesy his coauthor, the world-renowned designer Nancye Green.

Book Tom

Tom Peters, “the excellence guy,” has taken a new tack. Excellence? Absolutely. “People first”? Bedrock.
But more is urgently needed. Extreme Humanism. Tom calls out business’ central role in making our world better. Business as a paragon of moral behavior, a countervailing force to divisiveness, minimizers of climactic impact, and creators of inspiring products and services. This is a way of life that increases well-being for one and all.
