    "You cannot make more money investing somewhere else than you can investing in your own business." "Only with financial stability and soundness as a base can a company provide for its employees." and my all time favorite "The good and talented people are our most important asset, and the untalented uncommitted people are nothing but a liability whom we would like to get rid of." I love this book. It's written by a very old curmudgeon, who I insist must be crankier than all hell, and yet smart as a w "You cannot make more money investing somewhere else than you can investing in your own business." "Only with financial stability and soundness as a base can a company provide for its employees." and my all time favorite "The good and talented people are our most important asset, and the untalented uncommitted people are nothing but a liability whom we would like to get rid of." I love this book. It's written by a very old curmudgeon, who I insist must be crankier than all hell, and yet smart as a whip. His ex-business, Quill, which was purchased by Staples, provides for much of the wisdom in this book. To the reader, one gets the sense that this guy is a crabby old chap who didn't spend enough time at home - he admits it as such. He assuredly hates newly minted MBAs and doesn't like things that are premised from a derivative value. In other words, this is the entire old school handbook on how to create value, wealth, within the constructs of a business. I don't have to agree with a book to like it; the questions I ask myself on every book I read is, 1. what thesis (or multiple theses are)/is the author putting forward, 2. can they substantiate it? Can they provide examples of it or proof that their thesis works and 3. Is it purposefully overly technical to the point that it's not an enjoyable read? This is a very easy book to read, and yes - Mr. Miller here is putting forth what worked for him giving specific examples from his tenure as the owner/CEO of Quill. He also narrates about things which didn't work and tries to tie them in, luckily not at the expense of his central point. The reader may disagree in the style of prose (it's written by a cranky old man), or disagree with a point raised (retained earnings are the best way to finance growth), but everything about this book is - at all levels - correct. Meaning, you could replicate his recipe and become successful. It's contrarian because much of the business community in 2020 now react to subjects like "tipping points," "lean development," "10x impacts," "B Corporations," "80/20," "disruptive technologies," "paradox of choice," (ad nauseum). The word salad has been part of the business world for a long time, perhaps introduced by Harold Geneen, some of the grandfathers of TQM, and can be found throughout Peter Drucker's work. So If you cut away the weeds - or cut away the words - the core principles of business are discussed here, in this book. As a reader, especially in the business genre, you don't have to agree with the affirmatives from an author to know that you are still reading something worthwhile. Admittedly, much of Mr. Miller's advice is very basic and doesn't catch some of the nuance of innovation (the book: The Innovator's Dilemma: The Revolutionary Book that Will Change the Way You Do Business is the bible there). That said, this is a solidly great book with a great number of reminders to anyone in management of the basics that we all tend to forget in our world of ongoing business jargon.

    Overall this is a good book with some good first-hand experiences. However, I felt like this book wasn't organized as well as it should be. I foresee myself viewing this book as a reference source. Overall this is a good book with some good first-hand experiences. However, I felt like this book wasn't organized as well as it should be.
