Rated 5 out of 5 by BlueHiller Very Nice Book
We keep this book in our rental cottage in Maine and it is perfect for a casual glance or an extended read. Lots of vintage memorabilia, photos, and stories from the wonderful LL Bean history. Very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Airsponge Nice Weekend Read
So far the book is a great read on those quiet weekend afternoons at the cottage. I like the stories it is telling so far. It will take me a while to finish it but hey, the book was bought for relaxing at the cottage.

I truly treasure this book. The beautifully illustrated pictures allow one to feel the life of simpler times. The cover is simple, but textured and rich looking. It is a book to be past down through the ages. Thanks for sharing, L.L.Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by okiegirl Fascinating and heartwarming history!
A true American story if ever there was one! How an orphaned young man began and built an iconic Company, never losing sight of what matters: the customer. Because of the vision of its founder, the personal attention to service, and the dedication and devotion of its employees, L.L. Bean has a vast and devoted worldwide following. I am proud to be a 'Beaner', and reading this delightful book took me back to my teenage 'preppy' years growing up in MA. I can still remember getting my Norwegian sweater, and I frequently wear my black/red reversible down vest, both from the 1980s. I continue to wear Bean almost every day, and will be a loyal customer for life!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ranger24343 Fun read
Would give it 5 stars, but it arrived with the corners dented in. That should not be the case with a brand new book. Other than that, it's great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MightyRestigouche Interesting read
Always wanted to know who was LL Bean. And what LL Bean was. Very detailed stories about the man and his Main hunting shoe . Necessity is the mother of all invention . As you travel from the Main woods to the LL Bean store and be satisfied with the quality products that came from LL . And if not ! He made it right. Follow the growth of the company through its employees and consumers. Love the letters received by many happy customers.
Nice read ....................

Rated 5 out of 5 by westvirginia Book: Guaranteed to Last
I loved everything about this book; but was
disappointed not to find the poem by Mr.
Charles Gray, "My L.L. Bean Boots". It is
so appropriate and I think should have been featured, possibly at the very begin-
ning of the book! I have it framed above
our fireplace insert in our "country"
living room here in West Virginia. The book
is a wonderful read of L.L.'s life and a real
coffee table "keeper". My company can't
put it down! Thank you for this in-depth and informative account of
such an amazing man. I think L.L.
would have approved!
