The answer lies in the title of his 20th book.
Regardless of what your particular dream happens to be, the key to achieving it lies in tenacity, leadership and character. These aren’t traits, so much as skills — which Peter himself has honed from the 1,500 books (and counting) he’s read, the mentors he’s had the good fortune to study under, and a lifetime of lessons gleaned from success and failure alike.
The pages that follow are a distillation of all of that hard-won wisdom — a collection of personal insights and anecdotes featuring the likes of Mother Teresa, Richard Branson, and other less celebrated but no less inspiring individuals. It’s an unfortunate truth that most of us never take the steps to turn our dream into an ambition. This book can help you do that. Take from it what you can, and most importantly, keep an open mind; always be on the lookout for opportunities to expand and enhance your understanding of the world, and to build the tenacity, leadership and character that are essential to success — in business and in life.
