    This delightful biography “offers conclusive proof that Hines was not only a real human being, but an American culinary hero” (The Weekly Standard).   Duncan Hines may be best known for the cake mixes, baked goods, and bread products that bear his name, but many people don’t know that he was a real person and not just a fictitious figure invented for the brand. America's pioneer restaurant critic, Hines discovered his passion while working as a traveling salesman during the 1920s and 1930s—a time when food standards were poorly enforced and food safety was a constant concern. He traveled across America discovering restaurants and offering his recommendations to readers in his bestselling compilation Adventures in Good Eating—and the success of this work and his subsequent publications led Hines to manufacture the extremely popular food products that we still enjoy today.   In this biography, Louis Hatchett explores the story of the man, from his humble beginnings in Bowling Green, Kentucky, to his lucrative licensing deal with Procter & Gamble. Following the successful debut of his restaurant guide, Hines published his first cookbook at age fifty-nine and followed it with The Dessert Book—culinary classics including recipes from establishments he visited on his travels, favorites handed down through his family for generations, and new dishes that contained unusual ingredients for the era. Many of the recipes served as inspiration for mixes that eventually became available under the Duncan Hines brand.   This is a comprehensive account of the life and legacy of a savvy businessman and an often-overlooked culinary pioneer whose love of good food led to his name becoming a grocery shelf favorite.

    We all want people to do stuff. Whether you want your customers to buy from you, vendors to give you a good deal, your employees to take more initiative, or your spouse to make dinner-a large amount of every day is about getting the people around you to do stuff. Instead of using your usual tactics that sometimes work and sometimes don't, what if you could harness the power of psychology and brain science to motivate people to do the stuff you want them to do-even getting people to want to do the stuff you want them to do? In this book you'll learn the seven drives that motivate people: The Desire for Mastery, The Need to Belong, The Power of Stories, Carrots and Sticks, Instincts,  Habits, and Tricks of the Mind. For each of the seven drives behavioral psychologist Dr. Susan Weinschenk describes the research behind each drive, and then offers specific strategies to use. Here's just a few things you will learn:    The more choices people have the more regret they feel about the choice they pick. If you want people to feel less regret then offer them fewer choices.    If you are going to use a reward, give the reward continuously at first, and then switch to giving a reward only sometimes.    If you want people to act independently, then make a reference to money, BUT if you want people to work with others or help others, then make sure you DON'T refer to money.    If you want people to remember something, make sure it is at the beginning or end of your book, presentation, or meeting. Things in the middle are more easily forgotten.    If you are using feedback to increase the desire for mastery, keep the feedback objective, and don't include praise.
