Re-Imagine!: Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age by Tom PetersSeth Godins review:
A peek inside Toms brain, October 7, 2003
Tom Peters is the father of everything we know about work. And this book is the ultimate expression of his selfless quest to get us to WAKE UP, to innovate, to see whats unseen and do what needs to be done.
The book is noisy, busy, brilliant, loud, insightful... a visual and verbal riot that cant be read on just one shuttle flight. Sort of a cross between a coffee table book and a Freudian analysis session...
Hey--if traditional business books havent been powerful enough, remarkable enough or in-our-face enough to have the right impact, this is the next tool of choice.
I love Tom. You will too.

Re-imagine! Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age
After decades with Knopf, influential management guru Peters switches to DK in an effort to "reinvent the business book," and while the results don't quite live up to the hyperbole, the new publisher allows for a looser design strategy that complements the author's increasingly stream-of-consciousness writing. Gray dotted lines lead from the main text to sidebars topped with category-identifying icons, and words' size, color and even typeface refuse to stay stable within a single sentence. Design is clearly on his mind; one of the book's best passages is a rant against the poor ergonomics of the desk chairs in hotel suites. The book's themes are mostly the same ones Peters has been developing since 's The Circle of Innovation and its follow-ups: small professional service firms are the wave of the future, successful companies sell dreams instead of products, and so on. Some of his ideas, like the unlimited potential of the Internet, have begun to wear a bit thin, while others need overhauling thanks to the recession. There are strong chapters on the spending power of women and the need to restructure the American education system, but not all the new twists are as satisfying.
