Tom McMackin's Bread and Butter was okay. It was really repetitive and made me want to stop reading it because similar things happened through out the book, but the message he gave is what made me keep reading it. He made me believe that if I strive to become or do something that it can definitely happen. You just have to go through the steps to get there.Was this review helpful?

Tom McMakin's bread and butter really shows one the true meaning of freedom and happpiness. It gives the reader the drive and the inspiration not to mention the belief that one can become an entrepeneur and succeed at owning and running their very own bussines. It gives one reader the sense that they can be happy at the bussiness they are running. With all that being said, Bread and butter teaches one the aspects of running a succesful bussiness and making delicious bread all in one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Bread and Butter is about how a bread company was founded. A very much in love couple liked the idea of living in a quiet place while doing what they are most skilled at, baking bread. Their business began very small, but soon became a well known name for being able to produce such delicious bread. Some did not like the company and others even fought so that a Great Harvest would be placed in their ¿mom and pop owned¿ town. Those people learned that Great Harvest is, essentially, a ¿mom and pop¿ business as well. McMakin does a wonderful job at making others want to find true happiness. He describes happiness as, ¿making progress on who we really want to be, growing toward our more perfect self.¿ His ideas make a lot of sense, and one can agree that his point of view on life is quite inspiring.Was this review helpful?

I've spent my career thinking about how my life and work intersect. Bread and Butter is a book precisely about this question. In it Tom McMakin describes a philosophy of life and a philosophy of work that are one and the same and interviews many folks who have put this philosophy into practice. Regardless of whether or not you want to bake bread, if this question is important to you, this book is for you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

You don't have to be part of the business world to enjoy McMakin's book about the amazing success story that is Great Harvest. Simplicity, generosity, sharing, and continuous learning are the themes that permeate this touching tome. Lessons learned can be applied to both personal and professional relationships. A must-read, especially for those searching for practical ideas for living and working in a cynical world.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In his down to earth way, Tom has shown us that kindness and gentleness is, in fact, a more powerful paradigm for doing business than what most for-profit companies in the world are doing. Thank you, Tom for your honesty, vulnerability and courage to bring this important book to American business culture.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The book describes the highly skillful people at Great Harvest Bread Company and the discoveries they have made about living and working in ways that build the earth. If more people took these lessons to heart, our world would be in great shape.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
