Waddya know? Tom Peters is going to publish a new book. It should be out in February 2010, and it will be based on his last five years of blogging. (Relax – he’s on his fourth rewrite. It’s not just a collection of blog posts.) The theme? The “little big things” that matter – i.e. if you pay some attention to enough of the apparent minutiae of life at work you will do a lot better. Maybe he should have called it “Do sweat the small stuff”.
I am particularly surprised about this development, however, because when we met for lunch last year and I asked him whether he was going to write another book, Tom replied: “God, I hope not!” But maybe at the back of his mind the idea was stirring even then.
It’s certainly a very 2010 idea. Good luck Tom.
