Book Review: The Pursuit of WOW! Oct 10, 2007
Tom Peters' book is entirely spirited and full of spontaneous ideas for sales. His approach is out of the box, he is not a conformist, leaving me with many ideas to start now!
The book is written in many short example. Easy to digest each part. Let the concept become a part of you.

WOW! May 14, 2007
I can't put it down! I love his honesty, his say it like you see it and his human approach. Not sure what else to say. It's on my top 10 list.
Okay -- But more like tips.. Jan 21, 2007
This book is okay to read, but while I started reading this book seriously to read it all at once, I just oculdn't do it at once. It took me lot longer to finish this book than most others -- compared to the size of the book, not because the content is bad, but the way it has been written. Don't get me wrong this book is not a waste of time or money, and in fact, points delivered out of this book are well stuck to my brain that I use it regularly, but when you are reading a "Tips" book, it is hard to remember continuously everything thing and use it, so you have to stop and read some other time -- more like reading Gita/Bible/Qaran -- Absolutely fantastic words of wisdom, but can't swallow it all at once and by the time your each the end, it is lot longer..
I was thinking between a 4 star and 5 star for this book, but it ended up with 4 star, because, I didn't intend this book to be written this way -- better set of examples/anectodes would have made the book more interesting to read and remmeber the points easier, forever.
Amazing how current this book still is -- WOW is right! Jun 26, 2006
You may know Peters from his classic book IN SEARCH OF EXCELLENCE...business visionary and seminar leader. This book moves him and you into the cyberstage era. As it says on the back cover -- getting to excellence is not enuf --you have to leap and leap again and then catapault their imagaination-- blow their mindsets (hmm that's a 90's word) and knock off their Nikes...It's the wowers who will win in this brazen world. Women will love his milk, cookies and managing people chapter-- after all isn't that a stereotype-- the woman boss who brings in the goodies for the staff meeting....He covers hundreds of ideas here and disperses praise generously from Mary Kay for her MLM incentive program to the guy who keeps a clean bathroom at his gas station...Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way-- says Ted Turner and quoted by Peters...What Peters got right and remember this book was written back in 1994 is the irreverance to the corporate store....and the flattening of the pyramid...and the importance of small biz-- he talks to 11 entrepreneurs. Buy it used ...it's great to have on your shelf when you can't figure out what to do next as the boss of them or the boss of YOU!...Enjoy....fun airport reading....especially after a difficult meeting or maybe even before one.....
