Description

Few entrepreneurs can claim to have radically changed the way we live, and Ray Kroc is one of them. His revolutions in food-service automation, franchising, shared national training, and advertising have earned him a place beside the men and women who have founded not only businesses, but entire empires. But even more interesting than Ray Kroc the business man is Ray Kroc the man. Not your typical self-made tycoon, Kroc was 52 years old when he opened his first franchise. 

In Grinding It Out, you'll meet the man behind McDonald's, one of the largest fast-food corporations in the world with more than 32,000 stores around the globe. An irrepressible enthusiast, intuitive people person, and born storyteller, Kroc will fascinate and inspire you.

A true grinder

It seemed he was ina relentless struggle in his pursuits which made it kind of tiring to read vs inspirational. The first half story of growth was more interesting.

Didn't love the tone of the narrator's voice

I loved the story and the message, but was not a fan of the tone of the narrator's voice.

great book annoying narration

Ray Krok's story is great, but the narration is just so painfully fake and annoying.

Let’s grind it out

This is the first non IT startup book I read.

Ray Kroc who was a door to door sales man selling paper cups and later, multi-mixer, started MacDonald at the age of 52.

The book titled "Grinding it out" is so aptly named. Ray Kroc grinded out in the formative years.

Who would think flipping burger can create a hamburger high school & university, a $21 billion yearly revenue and 37,800 stores world wide.

For a man who rolled up his sleeves and started a mega biz so late in his life, is an inspiration too many.

I strongly recommend this book.

Continuation from the movie

If you have watched the movie the book will only add the lufe of Kroc after the movie ended.

Very impressive history of McDonalds and Krok

I learned so much about perseverence in business and be willing to take risks on your own business ideas regardless of who doubts you. Great book

Big Head

The story is interesting and helpful to understand the McDonald business and how it grew. However the guy is an unmitigated bighead, compared to other success stories of that era such as Sam Walton. The sort of guy who fall out with his wife because she won't do his paperwork, and hounds another mans wife till he breaks that marriage up isn't really the nicest of guys, even if he is one of the richest.

I actually liked the narrator

Really easy to listen and gives a much bigger and complete story than the movie.

I wonder

The movie was way different so you kind of get the picture of who Ray Kroc was in the movie, in the book everything was reversed between him and the McDonald's so did he like in his book or did they change that in the movie got dramatic purposes?
