Item Description...
More than a Hobby takes readers inside the mind of a low-key, likable Oklahoma entrepreneur who has created a unique shopping experience. How did his company go from a $600 loan to $1.3 billion in annual sales in just thirty-one years-especially when he wasn't groomed for this work either by heritage or by education?Green was willing to go against the tide, allowing faith to play a huge part in the business. More Than a Hobby describes how this wildly successful business was built not on business-school theory, but on the founder's own experience as a grassroots store manager.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
More stores needed.....  Mar 19, 2006
I found Hobby Lobby when we lived in Atlanta, Georgia and shopped in the Gwinnett store. When we moved to Chicago, I was thrilled to find Hobby Lobby in Vernon Hills and Round Lake, Illinois.

Now, however, we are moving back to New Jersey and I am dismayed to learn that there is no Hobby Lobby even remotely close to my new home. I wrote to the Headquarters and found that they do not build new locations more than 1000 miles from their headquarter location. I know that the east coast would be a good market for the store and am hoping that they will take the chance and give to rest of the nation the opportunity to enjoy the Hobby Lobby experience.......
Inspiring!  Aug 18, 2005
There is no way I could express what Hobby Lobby has meant to me over the years. I have never worked for Hobby Lobby but I think of it as "my" store. My first HL was the Tulsa store on Mingo. Now I live in Georgia and my store is in Buford. I can only describe it as a sanctuary. It came as no real surprise to me that David Green is a Christian and applies his ethics to his business. This is apparent in his stores, from the merchandise to the music that doesn't assault you when you enter.

I read the book in one sitting and since I wasn't expecting it to be an edge-of-the seat gripper, I enjoyed every page. Mostly I appreciated learning how it all came to be.

God bless David Green, his family and his business. Some people quietly choose to live their lives with real purpose and in so doing make a real difference in this world, others just make noises and spend their lives compromising. How refreshing to see that commerce can be ethical.
He's not the world's best writer  Aug 16, 2005
First things first, keep in mind that I'm an employee of the company for 3 years. My thoughts and opinions are slightly biased. Also, a lot of the information in the book is only interesting to me because it's company related material that I knew little to nothing about.

This book is pretty much a brief history of Hobby Lobby and Mr. Green's "Unorthodox" methods of business. If you are at all captivated by the workings of the retail world, this would be a descent read. If you frequently browse the aisles of Hobby Lobby and the book caught your eye, you MIGHT be able to read it all.

I am far from an avid reader, and really have no business critiquing a book but it's not very well written. Mr. Green often repeats himself and the company's history gets spread all over the book.

Ultimately - An employee of the company. A lover of the store. A "business world" fan. Buy it. Read it. Otherwise, proceed with caution.
