Tom Peters’ Compact Guide to Excellence
Tom Peters’ Compact Guide to Excellence (Ideapress Publishing) is full of inspiration for anyone aged 20 to 80, from cashiers to CEOs. Legendary author Tom Peters partnered with iconic designer Nancye Green of Donovan/Green to create this leadership guidebook. Peters and Green have packed this strikingly designed little book with exhilarating quotes that will urge you to recognize what truly matters at work. Peters gathered these gems of wisdom from those down in the trenches creating extraordinary places to work. Green wrought the most accessible and captivating way to absorb that wisdom.
Tom Peters’ Compact Guide to Excellence argues that business leaders must start putting people really first and start helping them prepare for a rocky future. As we come to terms with the debilitating pandemic, confront extreme wealth inequality, and wrestle with destabilizing technological revolutions still in their infancy, it is clear that “Extreme Humanism”—treating one another humanely—is the best path forward.
The insights you’ll find in Tom Peters’ Compact Guide to Excellence will move you to action, to vigorously and passionately support our communities, provide products and services that stun our clientele with their excellence and verve, and serve our ailing planet. It’s not just the best path forward, it’s the path that can engender purpose and pride in all of us who perform the work. Take this guidebook to work, on your travels, wherever you need to be reminded of excellence. Better yet, share this book—an exquisite gift—with anyone who needs a jolt of genius.

Since you may not have the time to read through all 6,500 pages of Tom's first nineteen books, it was very kind of him to have summarized his most fervent beliefs in this latest slim volume.
