It takes quite a bit of effort for Soundview to examine the hundreds of business books that arrive at our office. From all of these submissions, we arrive at the 30 best business books and summarize them. Of course, there are additional books beyond our 30 best that we still want to mention to our readers. We achieve this goal through the monthly installment of Speed Reviews we provide to every subscriber.
One book that recently came up for review is Tom Peters’ The Little Big Things: 163 Ways to Pursue Excellence. This is a book whose tiny chapters and chaotic layout defy the process of summary, but we were very excited to discuss it with readers. Peters is best known for co-authoring the business classic In Search of Excellence. The Little Big Things is a collection of blog posts, edited and modified by Peters, that serves as a daily guide to excellence. Peters provides entries for more than 40 topic areas. It would be difficult for any executive to not find at least one takeaway from Peters’ work. His writing is bold and infused with extreme self-confidence.
Soundview has an in-depth review of Peters’ book available online at Summary.com. The best part? The review is FREE even if you aren’t a Soundview Subscriber! Don’t forget, we add a new crop of reviews each month.
