I've always loved Hobby Lobby, and I enjoy informational/biographical books, so this was an easy choice for me. David Green details how the company got started, how its shipping practices work, how products are selected and displayed...if you've ever wondered anything about a Hobby Lobby store, it's probably covered in this book! I found it especially interesting to learn the reason why Hobby Lobby doesn't use barcodes on any of their items, and not only does it make sense, but it gives me more respect for their business practices than I had before. This was an interesting book on one of my favorite things. Easy read!
