What drew me to "Dave's Way," was Thomas' decision to enlist in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, versus being drafted. He already had food service experience, and was placed in a similar fashion for the Army. But what kept resonating with me was - he enlisted on his own accord. While this was common in the United States many decades ago, that type of reasoning and work ethic was lacking in young America for many of the last few decades. Dave also gave back to causes that meant a lot to him - Adoption and Education.
Not only were his burgers good, there was a great story behind them. Worth looking into.
This is an easy to read, easy to understand, and enjoyable book. I highly recommend to anyone in the service industry (aren't we all, in one way or another?), and to anyone in business, or wanting to start up a business. Hell, I recommend it to anyone, period, the book is full of good ideas about not only business but how to get along and seize opportunites. You can't argue with a billionaire, now, can you?
This book contains some of the best advice I have come across. It is very down to earth, has a simple style - but that's Dave's way! As straightforward as the writing, the homespun wisdom and advice is not trendy, it is the type that will hold true in 50 years or 50 years in the past. However, it is NOT common knowledge and I learned many valuable lessons.
Read it if you are a CEO or a kitchen manager in a fast food restaraunt - either way you will have more insight into life in general.
