Book Description

The Way of the Buffalo is a spiritual journey, not a handbook on how to do it, but rather lessons learned by two small-time entrepreneurs over a three-decade experience about the business of business. This collection of essays shares a unique perspective on the spirit of the entrepreneur, the will to sell, and the art of providing products and services to the public. Spencer's beliefs about running a profitable and ethical company are highlighted in this compilation of his musings, poetry, random writings, and a few song lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is The Way, Indeed :) December 20, 2012

Found this book via Buffalo Exchange website.

I'm a life-long consignment shopper & just this year took a part-time job in a small consignment store in my hometown after dropping out of law school.

I've NEVER had any interest in business until I started noting sales & setting mini-goals accordingly in this new part-time job. Reading this book totally stoked that fire . How awesome that these two people found one another! Lucky us:)

If I was forced to create a business philosophy - I simply couldn't. But I'd like to think it'd sound a lot like the Blocks'. It is SO refreshing to see such a non-traditional approach thrive -- especially in the context of today's corporate America.

If you're in the very particular niche to have found this book in the first place & have made the effort to go to amazon & read reviews -- it's kind of a sure bet you're gonna love this read.

Get it!
