Having said that, Peters more recent books, such as Thriving on Chaos, are probably more immediately actionable, though the principles (and the action steps - especially in the Afterward) make the book a still useful read 30 years later.
I'm re-reading this book over a decade after it first inspired me. Originally, it helped in "DOMESTIC" life as a leader of stay-at-home dads! The book got under my skin...and since 2004, its lessons were an integral part of building a top-producing real-estate business.

The book provides imaginative management practices and techniques that should help organization stay competitive and profitable. It is instructive and inspirational with useful reminders to managers. It is an important handbook to a brave, new way to manage people and companies.
A Passion for Excellence examines some of the most successful organizations and offers a thoughtful analysis of what makes them distinctive. Readers should benefit from gaining an insight about the critical elements of success namely constant innovation, staying in touch with customers, encouraging the contributions of everyone in the company, and maintaining the integrity that is basic to leadership.
One of the best books I ever read on the topic was A Passion for Excellence , the 1985 sequel to IN SEARCH OF EXCELLENCE by Bob Waterman and Tom Peters. This book offered example after example of what they called âaethe Leadership Difference.â
While this is now a 20 year old reference, I used it again recently
in a column titled "Understanding and Living Values" and had numerous responses from readers globally.
