Bill Taylor and Polly LaBarre are our new Cool Friends. Both of them had long careers at Fast Company (Bill was co-founder), and both have lots of experience writing and speaking on strategies, innovation, and personal success. Together they've written Mavericks at Work: Why the Most Original Minds in Business Win. Early readers, they tell us, called the book In Search of (a New Kind of) Excellence. I think this book is one you'll want to get for yourselves. There are more references to Tom in the interview—take a look to see what they are.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
