Small Giants by Bo Burlingham

In short, Small Giants is a Large Masterpiece. —Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence and Thriving on Chaos Small is the new big. —Seth Godin, Original Squid, I was asked to review this book and read every word, looking for a catchy reviewer’s phrase, a sales hook.
