Book Review: More than a Hobby



If you are looking for a detailed book about retail that will teach you everything an MBA should know about it, this isn't it. However, it is so much more. Reading this book is very much like sitting down for a chat with a friend who just happens to be the founder of a very successful business. The book is written in a very down-to-earth, straight-forward format. David is a real person. 

David Green talks about the history of Hobby Lobby. He also talks about the different decisions he has made and why. David Green and my father were very much alike. We had a small store and we always tried to make what we could rather than buy it. David explains how this is being a good steward of what God provides us. 

In this book David Green speaks of his decision to start closing on Sunday and all the grief he got over that decision. It seems that, end the end, it was the right decision. He even spoke of his realization that he was going about the Sunday closings with the wrong attitude. Very few CEOs would be that honest. That is what this is, an honest book. 

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is fun and easy to read. It is simple and straightforward and well worth every cent I spent on it and every minute I spent reading it.
