Maybe because he doesn't write a book but rather a mish-mash of ad-hoc
advice, case histories, and a lot of gee-whiz between two covers.

I remember some twit of an employment counselor telling us recently RIFed
job seekers that we should read Peters' _Liberation Management: Necessary
Disorganization for the Nonosecond Nineties_ to get an idea of the current
business climate. The friggin' thing is 800+ pages. Hell, if we really
believed Peters' thesis (to the extent that he has one), the information
would be obsolete before we finished it!
