    Story
    (30)

    London 1899 and a matter of grave national importance. American impresario Florenz Adler, has rebuilt Shakespeare's Globe playhouse. The grand opening is to take place in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. Amid the excitement, the actors receive sinister warnings in the form of cryptic quotations from Shakespeare's plays and a drawing of a rose. A hoax? A literary joke? But not for long - the joke turns sour as the murders begin, each an exact copy of a death in a Shakespeare play.

    Story

    The above story is strong and I will listen to it again however the production values are shakey. I can hear the audio cut out and come in again. It is as if the sound engineer and voice over artist decided to take a break. That happens in other audio novels but in the final product such rough patches are worked out. Not so here. So, high marks for story and narration. Average and low on presentation. Perhaps that is why I was able to buy it for under $5.00.

    Story
    (60)

    "Years ago, I wrote about a retail store in the Palo Alto environs—a good one, which had a box of two-cent candies at the checkout. I subsequently remember that 'little' parting gesture of the two-cent candy as a symbol of all that is Excellent at that store. Dozens of people who have attended seminars of mine have come up to remind me, sometimes 15 or 20 years later, of “the two-cent candy story,” and to tell me how it had a sizable impact on how they did business."

    Story
    Would you listen to The Little Big Things again? Why?

    The way this book is laid out it is best suited as a reference. They are individual essays on the art of business from sage advice to a world vision of how to treat the world and yourself.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like Peters' style. Since he is also the speaker the text carries with it the sense of a one-on-one conversation with you.


    What about Tom Peters’s performance did you like?

    It's lively. He is passionate about what he thinks is important.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My reaction made me more intense and gave me a different perception on what I do. I am a professional actor. Much of his advice applies to me as it would to an air conditioner salesman. He asks for a clear-eyed look at yourself and urges you to take action. That appeals to me. How do I carry out my business? What's my story? All of this is valuable.
