Small Giants Book
We’ll start where it all started: with the best-selling book, Small Giants by Bo Burlingham.
Small Giants digs deep into the stories of fourteen remarkable companies that have chosen to prioritize purpose and people over profit. In his book, Bo explores these Small Giants and shares what gives these special companies their unique “mojo.”
