a business primer and
fashion love song
The Way of the Buffalo: A Business Primer and Fashion Love Song, written by Spencer Block, was published posthumously in August 2011. The paperback is now available on Amazon and at your local Buffalo Exchange, Bookmans Entertainment Exchange, Mostly Books and Antigone Books. Also available on Kindle and NOOK. Spencer’s wife and daughter compiled and edited his writings. Spencer opened Buffalo Exchange with his wife Kerstin in 1974. As both entrepreneur and hippie (of sorts), Spencer wrote over the years about his insights on Buffalo Exchange's values, and how it has managed to remain vibrant and ever-changing. His discussion on being in business while doing good and remaining sustainable is at times funny, poignant and always down to earth.
The Way of the Buffalo is a spiritual journey. Not a handbook on how to do it, but rather lessons learned by two small-time entrepreneurs over a three-decade experience about the business of business. This collection of essays shares a unique perspective on the spirit of the entrepreneur, the will to sell and the art of providing products and services to the public. Spencer's beliefs about running a profitable and ethical company are highlighted in this compilation of his musings, poetry, random writings and a few song lyrics. See preview.
