If you ever wanted to know how companies go from small to large, this book is a good read. Even though the author James McLemore often repeats the same facts from one paragraph to the next there is a lot of insight in the struggles that Burger King had before they were bought by Pillsbury in 1967 and even after the sale when McLemore stayed to help run the company that he got started. McLemore's committment to education through Burger King Foundation will tell you that this man was a true visionary. It is an interesting autobiography.
