"In no small part, what American corporations have become is what Peters has encouraged them to be." -- The New Yorker
"Peters is ... the father of the post-modern corporation." -- Los Angeles Times
Tom Peters describes himself as a prince of disorder, champion of bold failures, maestro of zest, professional loudmouth (as a speaker he’s "a spitter," according to the cartoon strip Dilbert), corporate cheerleader, lover of markets, capitalist pig and card-carrying member of the ACLU.
Fortune calls him the "Ur-guru" (guru of gurus) of management. The Economist says he’s the "Uber-guru." And his unconventional views led Business Week to describe him as business’ "best friend and worst nightmare."
Tom followed up on the phenomenal success of In Search of Excellence (1982, with Robert H. Waterman, Jr. .. recently named one of the "Top Three Business Books of the Century") with four more best-selling hardback books: A Passion for Excellence (1985, with Nancy Austin), Thriving on Chaos (1987), Liberation Management (1992, and recently acclaimed as the "Management Book of the Decade" for the ’90s), The Circle of Innovation: You Can’t Shrink Your Way to Greatness (1997); and a pair of bestselling paperback originals, The Tom Peters Seminar: Crazy Times Call for Crazy Organizations (1993) and The Pursuit of WOW!: Every Person’s Guide to Topsy-Turvy Times (1994). The first three of Tom’s new series of books on Re-inventing Work were released in September 1999: The Brand You50: Fifty to Transform Yourself from an "Employee" into a Brand that Shouts Distinction and Passion!, The Project50: Fifty Ways to Transform Every "Task" into a Project that Matters!, and The Professional Service Firm50: Fifty Ways to Transform Your "Department" into a Professional Service Firm Whose Trademarks Are Passion and Innovation!
