The Little Big Things book. Business uber-guru Tom Peters is back with his first book in a decade, The Little Big Things. In this age of economic recession and financial uncertainty, the patented Peters approach to business and se, witty, down-to-earth, insightful-is more pertinent now than ever. As essential for small-business owners as it is for the heads of major corporations, The Little Big Things is a rousing call-to-arms to American business to get back to the basics of running a successful enterprise.

The Little BIG Things is, without any hint of hyperbole, the single best management book I've ever read. So, here they are, The Little BIG Things read by Tom. The Little BIG Things is a compendium of 163 ways to pursue excellence-with tips ranging from the blatantly obvious, "Show Up! (It's a Start. " and "It's All About. the Quality of the Workforce," to the wildly counterintuitive, "Boring Is Beautiful" and "Reward DNK (Do Not Know)," to the often repeated, "The Customer Is 'She.

Tom Peters has probably done more than anyone else to shift the debate on management from the confines of boardrooms . Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age Adhocracy. Books by Thomas J. Peters BOOKS TO READ BEFORE YOU LEAD.

Tom Peters has probably done more than anyone else to shift the debate on management from the confines of boardrooms, academia, and consultancies to a broader, worldwide audience, where it has become the staple diet of the media and managers alike. Peter Drucker has written more and his ideas have withstood a longer test of time, but it is Peters-as consultant, writer, columnist, seminar lecturer, and stage performer-whose energy, style, influence, and ideas have shaped new management thinking.

No one has had more influence in shaping the idea of modern management than Tom Peters. An avowed enemy of conformism and the status quo, Peters is a necessary voice of experience to guide us through times of financial uncertainty. In The Little BIG Things, he provides essential wisdom for everyone-from the freelancer to the small business owner to the head of a major corporation-offering 163 ways to excel at the “people side of business” by pursuing excellence at every level. “The ‘Excellence Standard’ is not about Grand Outcomes. In Zen-like terms, all we have is today. If the day’s work cannot be assessed as Excellent, then the oceanic overall goal of Excellence has not been advanced. Period.” “If membership in your club (organization) is not aimed at ‘mind-blowing’ development for each staff member and ‘window rattling’ service for each customer and other extended family member, then ...just what the hell is the point?”

I've been listening to Tom's "The Little Big Things" and reading along on the Kindle version. Tom likes to zero in on simple ideas that can have a powerful impact on the success of a business (small, medium or large). This is a really healthy approach to helping businesses succeed. Folks like to read, absorb and apply...not spend all kinds of time trying to understand graphs, analyses, and information presented all-too-often intended to impress than to assist. So Tom scores very big points throughout in getting us immediately useable information.

There is one item I strongly disagree with in the book. Tom says:

"I argue here and elsewhere that the *only* effective source of innovation is pissed-off people! Hence, bite your tongue and cherish such misfits!" (the word *only* was in italics presumably for emphasis)

I'm sure some points of innovation come from pissed-off people, and I imagine Tom has considerably more examples of this than I do. But I'm also sure superb innovation has come from those not pissed-off at all. This I've seen with my own eyeballs on quite a few occasions. And sometimes these pissed-off misfits are just that: pissed-off misfits with no innovation whatsoever in their space. Quite the contrary, some are involved with undoing innovation, creativity and productivity. So I'm not on the look-out for pissed-off misfits nor should you be. Be on the look-out for innovation in whatever form it presents itself. Then check it out, test it out and use it liberally when you see it gets the desired results.

Have shared with numerous colleagues over several business lives - decision makers - this is a must have for your desk. No need to read it cover to cover. Finding yourself short on fresh approaches and ideas? Just pop open to any page and start reading a subject.

I admit it... I am an unrepentant Tom Peters fanatic and have been for 20+ years. But even with that said, there have been a few (very few) of Tom's books that I felt were...uh... "Less-than-excellent."(small "e") So it was with a bit of trepidation that I sat down to read his newest book: "The Little BIG Things - 163 Ways to Pursue EXCELLENCE." At 507 pages of main text, it is a significant commitment for many readers to undertake the study of this book weighty tome... and I promise you it is worth every single page of it! I read it cover-to-cover (twice) in the span of two days of flying to meet with clients. I simply could NOT put it down, as I was greedy to get to the next page of TP wisdom and wisecracking. If you are a Tom Peters devote' you will recognize much (nearly all) of what this book contains... and that is just fine. It is filled with a relentless parade of "TP's Greatest Hits" that keep slapping you in the face and pushing you to think, adjust, change and take action. If you are a business leader of ANY kind - you MUST read this book. I absolutely GUARANTEE you will find not one... not two... but 20 or 30 game-changing ideas that could truly take your business and your career to a completely new level. As someone who has read a MINIMUM of 100 - 120 business books a year, every year since 1989, (and it all started with In Search Of Excellence!) I will tell you with NO hesitation that "The Little BIG Things" is now in my top 5 all-time favorites. YES - it is that good! Mr. Peters... this one is a complete homerun!!!!!!!!!

I bought a copy of this book a few years ago and gave it to a friend, I wish I had bought 2 copies as it’s easily the best business management book I have ever come across. I would love to meet the author and chat about his ideas which I think are bang on!

One of the best and only books on the ever so important “paying attention to detail” ... the author truly dives in to the importance of detail.
Gri
Being an automotive management major, I find that a substantial amount of the practices, ethics and concepts detailed in this book could be applied to a future position of mine. They're not something I've come across yet, but would definitely apply to my ongoing and future career.
Ce
As a leader of an organization trying to stay fresh and ahead of the curve - this book is invaluable. I read everything Tom writes and more importantly - I apply much of what he promotes. This is not high-pie-in-the-sky stuff; this is stuff that works.
Good author, another good book
