    This sweet and funny tale of a preppy editor buying a Brooklyn deli with his Korean in-laws is about family, culture clash, and the quest for authentic experiences. It starts with a gift. When Ben Ryder Howe’s wife, the daughter of Korean immigrants, decides to repay her parents’ self-sacrifice by buying them a store, Howe, an editor at the rarefied Paris Review, agrees to go along.

    lesley says: "Absolutely delightful!"
    "Entertaining"
    Overall

    Quite entertaining really, the multicultural clashes are quite interesting. If it's not his mother in-law it's Dwayne the store employee, or even George, his boss, at the Paris Review. The narration is truly excellent, it is hard to believe that Bronson does all those voices.

    The secret for creating magic in our careers, our organizations, and our lives is simple: outstanding leadership, the kind that inspires employees, delights customers, and achieves extraordinary business results. No one knows more about this kind of leadership than Lee Cockerell, the man who ran Walt Disney World Resort operations for over a decade.

    Garrett says: "Brilliant, simple, lessons on leadership"
    "Very Inspiring, life changing"
    Overall

    This is a great book full of examples and is a very moving book. I especially like that he goes into detail of mistakes he has made and how he has learned from them. As he states in the book, leaders are not born, they are developed. I was sad that the book couldn't be longer and am now searching for more books regarding Disney Management/Institute and am now even a follower of Lee CockerelI's blog. This book was so inspiring that I bought 2 paperback copies, one for my myself, so I can make proper notes, and another for a former boss of mine which can gain alot of knowledge from this book.
