    Small Giants

    Companies that Choose to be Great Instead of Big

    by Bo Burlingham

    Most books about successful businesses focus on public companies. But Inc. magazine Editor Bo Burlingham focuses on privately held companies marching to the beat of a different drum. In Small Giants, he profiles 14 of the best, including Anchor Brewing, CitiStorage, Clif Bar Inc., Righteous Babe Records, Reel Precision Manufacturing and Zingerman’s Community of Businesses. Burlingham takes readers inside these companies to determine the elusive “mojo” that makes them great.
