'The First Food Empire: A History of J. Lyons & Co.'

I found this book on the Internet and thoroughly enjoyed it. Once into it I couldn't put it down. Peter Bird - the author - himself a long term Lyons employee, spent six years in its research and it covers every section of the company. It includes some interesting observations on why the company went to the wall and of course an account of its beginnings.
