This book expounds on the ideas and concepts put forth in the author's earlier book "Stewardship: Choosing Service over Self-interest." Peter questions many aspects of the basic business model we now work under, such as performance reviews, motivation, employee retention, profitability, etc. and suggests revolutionary changes in our thinking. Implementing his ideas will force us to think about the bigger picture, the impact of our actions on society, and how this will benefit all. The discussion here is a little more practical than in his other stewardship book, and he offers numerous examples to illustrate his points. He admits that much of what he says is experimental, but that change starts in pieces. The book ends with an interview where the moderator challenges Peter on the practicality of his ideas. If nothing else, his defenses will leave you thinking.
