News & Opinion: Hang Out With Freaks and other Tom Peters' TIBs

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 3:49 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Need a new coffee table book? This may be for you. Tom Peters' new book, Sixty, is large and in charge. It's full-color and filled with witty and memorable messages. One example,
Innovation = Easy. (True.)
(Message: Hang out with Freaks!)

About the book's background:
When Tom Peters turned 60, he reflected upon his life and compiled a list of 60 things he believed (TIB = "This I Believe"). Sixty is the full-color compilation of these 60 TIBS available only at the WOW!Store for a limited time. Check out Tom Peters' blog for more about the book.
An afternoon quote from Sixty:
The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.

I enjoyed it so much that I may just borrow Jack's copy for my coffee table.
