Publishers Description
McDonald's: it is the world's premier entrepreneurial success story, a company whose growth worldwide continues to be astonishing. In tough financial times, McDonald's proved that ingenuity, trial and error, and gut instinct were the keys to building a service business the entire world has come to admire. In the years since "McDonald's: Behind The Arches" was first published, McDonald's has been a trendsetter in advertising, focusing on different ethnic groups as well as the physically disabled. McDonald's created McJobs, a program that employs both mentally challenged adults and senior citizens. And because its franchisees have their fingers on the pulse of the marketplace, McDonald's has evolved successfully with the health food revolution, launching dozens of new products and moving toward environmentally-safe packaging and recyclable goods. Inspiring, informative, and filled with behind the scenes stories, this remarkable saga offers an irresistible look inside a great American business success.

McDonald's  Feb 10, 2008
Great information on one of America's best ran business. Excellent source of ideas for restaurant operators.
Great book for learning about execution  Nov 11, 2007
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The most interesting part is the actual history of the evolution of McDonald's- the company, the brand, the system. While many people can find fault with the fast food culture of the world and point a finger at McDonald's, one cannot ignore the incredible story that describes the creation of an entire culture. In fact, this book is a must-read for anyone who believes that great companies are created, not by great ideas, but disciplined execution, processes/systems and attention to detail. It taught me a lot about the workings of this giant even though I am not sure I would want to eat there anymore, particularly after reading "Fast Food Nation"!
Puff Piece  Jul 23, 2007
Decent corporate bio, but definitely in the "authorized" category. Corporate missteps and blunders are glossed over, and the company is portrayed as having created everything. For example, did McDonald's really create centralized distribution? Was the creative accounting used to obtain financing in the 1960s OK since they didn't default on the loans, and it's more accepted today? Should the rage and childishness of Ray Kroc and later CEO Fred Turner exhibited at times be overlooked so easily? The book paints an extremely rosy picture of a company that is extremely flawed.

Interesting chronology and interpretation of the development of this monolithic American icon. Could have been more balanced and investigative, and relied less the corporate archives.
Daniel McDonald  May 7, 2007
I worked for McDonald's from the month of Income Tax Day April 1996 straight till the month of W2 forms January 2004 for 7yrs 8mos. Filet O'Fish Philly Moses and Jesus Christ and the Loaves and the fishes.

Mc Donalds is all about making people FAT
