Review:

My pick of the year. Buffett's is the store where I got my start in business. --Warren Buffett

First to catch the reader's eye and (leave him wanting to read on) are the compelling graphics that jump off the pages of this beautifully designed book. Whatever your generation you will take delight in the brilliant colors used over the last one hundred years to promote products like Coca-cola, Karo Syrup, Page Valley Canned Peaches, Beeman's Gum and Eat More Quaker Oats Less Meat. Buffett, born in 1933, chronicles the times of his life and the four generations before his through the lens of his family's business, Buffett's, a grocery store founded in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1869, and closed one hundred years later in 1969. It was the oldest independent grocery store in Nebraska. Its history encompasses Omaha's frontier days, the great Depression and World War II amongst the many twists and turns of those years. Like all books about America's history, Foods You Will Enjoy is about coping in ever-changing times. This book can be a bracing, energetic and common sense tonic for how we got this far and how most likely we will continue to make headway and prosper in the future. --Linda Larson, Poet
