The Beauty Of Small Books

I had a beer and chat with my friend David Gurteen the other night and we got on to the topic of business books and what were good examples.

We both seemed to like physically small, to-the-point books (that you could just about slip into your pocket).

Tom Peters ‘The Brand You 50: Reinventing Work‘ is a good example.

Other similar compact books I like and use are:

These books are not for learning about a subject but rather reminding the reader of key points in an interesting manner. Of course, every book is compact from a digital point of view but I still think there’s something to having a physical copy to dip into.

It’s interesting how their attractive design aligns so well with their use. Size matters, and (in this case) small is best!
