Fascinating New Book About Amish Business Practices

It’s always fun when one of my author friends has a new book out, but this week I’m especially excited about the release of Amish expert Erik Wesner’s Success Made Simple: An Inside Look at Why Amish Businesses Thrive, from Jossey-Bass Publishers.  If you’ve read the acknowledgements in my own Shadows of Lancaster County and A Pocket Guide to Amish Life, you know that Erik has been pivotal in the past in helping me with Amish research.  He is incredibly knowledgeable about the Plain people and well-connected within Amish communities across the country. He’s also an all-around great guy and has gone above and beyond to help me get the Amish parts of my own stories correct.

I’m so happy for Erik and proud of this amazing new book that shines a light on all that the Amish bring to the world of business.  Learn more at his website, where you can also download a sample chapter.  Given the fascinating topic, massive research, and excellent writing that went into Success Made Simple, I predict big things.

Congrats, Erik, and best wishes for a wildly popular book. You deserve it! :)
