Ironically, I read this book after quitting my job and going home to have our first baby. I'm writing this review twenty two years later. The idea that sticks with me is the concept of "reinventing" yourself anew as you enter new projects. So in that sense, I was definitely reinventing myself from businesswoman to stay-at-home mom.

It was an interesting book for its time. Tom Peters saw what was coming, and most companies ignored what he saw. Now it's time for the book to be donated.
