WRITING AT THE EGDE; NOT A BOOK TO READ BUT TO EXPERIENCE!!!
am 23. April 1999
Peters zeros in on innovation as the touchstone for success, along with a passionate presentation of fifteen other related ideas such as: distance is dead; destruction is cool; we are all Michelangelos; welcome to the white - collar revolution; the intermediary is doomed; and the system is the solution.
The book's visual layout model's its theme which is - It is the end of the world as we know it, so whatever made you successful in the past won't in the future. What, then, can you do? The answer is...innovation!
This is another WOW book, exuding the excitement and novelty that makes Tom Peters, himself, a living example of what he passionately and entertainingly writes about. Peters delivers content in a form that breaks all book 'rules,' using a plethora of P. T. Barnum pizazz. Among business books, that's innovative!
Peter's is always trying to write at the EDGE. I don't think he expects or wants you to read this book...no sir...he wants you to EXPERIENCE it in the way you might experience leaping into a cold pool first at dawn. But come to think about it, the book is more like a roller-coaster ride, with zigs and zags and lots of ZIP!. Still, for all its flare, this is not a ground-breaking work, falling a wee bit short of Peters' "Liberation Management." Highly recommended.
