Punk Rock People Management

I have just received an advance copy of an unusual book on managing people by the business author and speaker called Peter Cook. He is the author of ‘Best Practice Creativity’ and ‘Sex, Leadership and Rock’n’Roll’, acclaimed by Professor Charles Handy and Tom Peters. Peter mixes up business academia with music in a heady cocktail that reaches the parts that other business gurus do not dare to touch.

Peter has just released his latest 'album'. The curiously titled Punk Rock People Management takes a critical look at Human Relations and offers some short and straightforward advice on hiring, inspiring and firing staff.

In the spirit of punk, Peter has made each chapter just two pages long – ideal for busy people and those who now browse books online. On hearing of the idea that you could read a chapter in less time than it would take to pogo to a Ramones or Linkin Park song – international author and speaker Tom Peters tweeted just four characters to Peter – “DO IT”. That’s economy!

Peter offers keynote seminars and more traditional business consultancy without guitars, based on his ideas – you can find out more at The Academy of Rock. He also invites you to connect with him on LinkedIn.

A full colour printed book and a Kindle version are available.
