Read full description of the books:
Tom Peters has for twelve years been telling business that the rules have changed. Now he goes farther in The Tom Peters Seminar, the first in an exciting new series of original paperback books aimed at helping everyone - Fortune 500 chairmen, middle managers trying to hold on to their place on the ladder (a mistake!), and hotel housekeepers - thrive in the brave new world of business. He presents the provocative and sometimes scary analysis and advice that have led thousands from all over the globe to spend up to $1,500 a day to attend his trademark seminars. These bold ideas vault business people beyond reengineering, beyond total quality management, beyond empowerment, even beyond change - toward reinvention and revolution. The result, organized around nine such "beyonds", is a timely, graphically exciting volume, loaded with "how tos". In presenting a radical new view of how business can work, Peters offers the following challenge: "If you're not irate in the first thirty minutes of reading, if you don't throw this book down at least once in the first hour, and if you don't reach for the Maalox by the two-hour mark, then I and this book will have utterly failed you".

Read information about the authorBorn in Baltimore in 1942 "with a lacrosse stick in one hand and oars over my shoulder," Peters resided in California, mainly Silicon Valley (where he was on a list of "100 most powerful people in Silicon Valley"), from 1965–2000. Today, Peters and his wife Susan Sargent live on a 1,600-acre working farm, "always under construction," in Vermont. His two stepsons, Max and Ben Cooper, are "busy changing the world" in Telluride and Brooklyn respectively.
Peters is a civil engineering graduate of Cornell (B.C.E., M.C.E.), where he is included in the book The 100 Most Notable Cornellians and earned an MBA and Ph.D. in business at Stanford; he holds honorary doctorates from institutions that range from the University of San Francisco to the State University of Management in Moscow—and has been honored by dozens of associations in content areas such as management, leadership, quality, human resources, customer service, innovation, marketing, and design. In the U.S. Navy from 1966–1970, he made two deployments to Vietnam (as a combat engineer in the fabled Navy Seabees) and "survived a tour in the Pentagon." He was a White House drug-abuse advisor in 1973–74 and then worked at McKinsey & Co. from 1974–1981, becoming a Partner in 1979; he also co-founded McKinsey's now gargantuan Organization Effectiveness practice. Peters' chief avocations are "brushcutting in the summer, hiking in New Zealand in the winter, reading history books by the hundredweight, collecting weird friends, talking to cab drivers, visiting Venice and racing George Clooney in accumulating frequent flyer miles."
