Copy This!: Lessons from a Hyperactive Dyslexic who Turned a Bright Idea Into One of Americas Best Companies by Ann Marsh, Paul Orfalea

Copy This! , Paul Orfaleas inspiring, personal story of turning lemons into lemonade, may be the most unusual business memoir ever published. Paul Orfalea struggles mightily to read, to write, and to sit still through a business meeting. So whats the problem? By working with the obstacles life dealt him-he calls his dyslexia and ADHD learning opportunities-he grew a 100-square-foot copy shop named Kinkos into a $1.5 billion-a-year company that Fortune named one of the best places in America to work. This is the story of a boy who flunked out of second grade-a boy who was fired by a gas station for writing illegible receipts. But its also the story of a boy who learned from the world directly, who was brave enough to fail, who knew he had to rely on other people. A boy who developed empathy, a particular gift of his dyslexia that gave Orfalea the crucial insight into what makes Kinkos work. When Paul Orfalea first looked out on the worried, hopeful faces of his customers, he knew that he was in the problem-solving business-at four cents a page. Kinkos doesnt so much handle paper as it handles dreams. Paul Orfalea really did do it his way. With humor, wisdom, and compassion, he shares his invaluable experiences and unorthodox business lessons with the millions of those who are just a little bit different, and who wonder if theres a place for them in the world. There is: at the top.
