Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Here are more business bromides for those who haven't heard them before (or can't get enough). Miglani, who currently works for a Fortune 500 company (he never reveals which), has also apparently put in many an hour behind the counter of his family's ice cream shop serving up sundaes and soaking up management wisdom. The 30 brief chapters into which he divides this book mostly impart all the usual advice (e.g., be nice to people, invest in your employees, love your job, lead by example), but a few stand out (e.g., "Always offer your delivery guys a milkshake" and "When it's time to lean, it's time to clean"). All are couched in terms of the Dairy Queen franchise, providing some insight into the workings of a family ice cream business. Miglani shares his learned bits of wisdom in a humorous, anecdotal style, and the book reads quickly, but there's not much new here. Purchase where there is interest.-Susan Hurst, Miami Univ.
