Pizza Tiger, Tom Monaghan and Robert Anderson Throughout the book, Monaghan recounts stories of violence related to pizza. It seems like he had a bit of a temper.

Pizza Tiger, Tom Monaghan and Robert Anderson. Domino's Pizza was founded by brothers Tom and Jim Monaghan in 1960. At the time, it wasn't called Domino's (it was an established restaurant called DomiNick's), and the brothers faced plenty of challenges getting their new business off the ground. In 1986, Tom Monaghan wrote an autobiography entitled Pizza Tiger, detailing how he went from one store to thousands of franchise stores. Some of the revelations in the book are a little surprising. Throughout the book, Monaghan recounts stories of violence related to pizza.

by Robert Anderson and Thomas Monaghan. Easy to read - but a bit slow in parts - the nature of biography in my opinion. so overall subject matter for me was excellent and I am in the pizza business. On a literary scale the book was only a 2 star - but 5 star for me as I used some of the ideas and confirmed some concepts.

The autobiographical Pizza Tiger, co-authored by Monaghan with Robert Anderson . There were many places in this book where something I already knew.

The autobiographical Pizza Tiger, co-authored by Monaghan with Robert Anderson and published in 1986, was the first retelling of Monaghan's story; but it was written before Tom's 1989 millionaire's vow of poverty and it was, by Tom's own admission, somewhat of an ego trip. But Monaghan did move on. After reading The Catholic Classics, a two-volume collection of essays by Dinesh D'Souza on great Catholic thinkers, Monaghan was particularly impressed by a passage from . Lewis, the only Protestant scholar in the collection.

What I loved about this book was just how honest he was about his short comings in business. I've learned a lot just reading about how he made many many mistakes, he grew too quickly while losing sight of who his customer is, and would delegate fully trusting his staff, but never verifying they were doing the right job. So many lessons, and its an easy read, I read it in a week. I wanted to read it because it was suggested by a business coach I trust, and as someone who's got a business with multiple locations, it has opened my eyes to several good things as well that Tom did right, not just negative.

This is a column that I wrote on Huffington Post, August 22 2011 to update my 2002 post. It is part of a chapter in my book, Wealth Without Wall Street, A Main Street Guide to Making Money. As I note, this book was a road map and inspiration for me.

George Bernard Shaw said there are two tragedies in life: One is not to get your heart's desire. The other is to get it.

I learned during my first few years in business exactly what Shaw was talking about.

I hit it big at an early age. I started my business at 23, and by 29 I was one of the top producers nationally of mutual funds, annuity, and bond sales for the New York broker with whom I was affiliated.

I had achieved the highest levels in the Million Dollar Round Table. I had a huge house in an upscale, gated neighborhood, a red Mercedes Benz convertible, and a big, penthouse-style office on the top floor of one of Lexington's taller towers. I was featured in Forbes and Financial Planning.

One year later both my lawyer and accountant recommended that I file for bankruptcy. My net worth had plummeted far into the red, and banks were breathing down my neck. My business was still going strong, but I had gotten into a real estate deal that I didn't truly understand with people I didn't know well. And, it happened at a time when the real estate market suddenly turned south.

Initially, I had grown my business by reinvesting profits and being frugal. I had lived modestly and had no debt. I knew my business backward and forward and spent a ton of money educating myself and my staff.

Suddenly, my cash was drained by a sideline investment and the expensive lifestyle I had decided to adopt. I didn't have the money to properly reinvest in my business and in continuing education. My focus went from a long-term view to just getting through the day.

I made the classic mistake of a successful entrepreneur. I thought my first success meant that I would be successful at everything. I got away from the things that had gotten me to the top.

If you study the history of entrepreneurs, you'll see that many do what I did. Their initial idea works. They become successful but then get distracted with outside interests and start to lose the single-mindedness that made them a success. Some recognize their mistakes and regain their focus. Others do not and their businesses fail.

I was lucky. I was able to see what I did wrong and make corrections.

The year was painful, but I learned lessons I will never forget. The experience was as valuable as a Harvard MBA, and I paid more than the school's tuition to achieve it.

In order to get back on track, I had to go back to my roots like Rocky did in the movie Rocky III. I had to regain the "eye of the tiger."

I thought long and hard about what I needed, what I wanted, and the mistakes I had made. I sat near the lighted, uphill waterfall in my massive house, looked at my beautiful car, and realized the house and car weren't important. The only creature comforts I needed were an ice maker, cable television (this was pre-Internet), a recliner, and air-conditioning.

What I really valued was financial independence and the challenge to be the best at what I did. I couldn't be independent if banks, creditors, and a fancy lifestyle controlled my life. A line in Bill Hybels' book, Christians in the Marketplace: Making Your Faith Work on the Job, hit me. It essentially said "if you spend all your time making money to support a material possession like a car, the car has replaced God in your life." Or as the band Zoe Speaks said several years after Hybels, "If money's our God, I want a new religion."

My religion had become keeping up my lifestyle and managing debt. Once I realized what I really valued -- financial independence -- it was easy to implement a different plan.

I ditched the big house and traded in the Mercedes for a Buick. I relocated my panoramic office to a small one on a ground floor. I sold most of the furniture in my home, except for the bed and recliner, and moved to a modest apartment that had air-conditioning, an ice maker, and cable.

I read and reread Pizza Tiger, the biography of Tom Monaghan, the founder of Domino's Pizza.

Monaghan's career path had the same sudden boom and sudden bust before he finally broke through to an international level. I couldn't afford to buy the book so I kept checking it out of the public library. (I own two copies of it now.) Monaghan's story gave me hope and inspiration.

I eventually knocked out my debt as I reinvested in my business and education. I got a second master's degree in financial services and my fourth professional designation.

Going back to the original formula got me on a growth path again. Four years after I ignored the advice to file bankruptcy, I was out of debt and my business was bigger than ever.

"Stick to what you know" seems like common-sense advice, but I have watched many business people make the same mistake I did. Once things start to go well, entrepreneurs think success will last forever. They often get into ventures outside of their expertise and start spending too much money and time on a fancy lifestyle.

When they crash, they do one of two things. They give up and quit or they "double down," to use a gambling term, and focus harder on the original business. Like Monaghan did with Domino's Pizza. After he doubled down, his company reached success beyond his wildest dreams. He made millions, enough for him to buy the Detroit Tigers baseball team.

As I made my comeback, I used to play an obscure Jim Croce song, Age, every single day. Two lines were my mantra. "And now I'm in my second circle and I'm headed for the top, I've learned a lot of things along the way. I'll be careful while I'm climbing because it hurts a lot to drop."

Some of the lessons I teach throughout my new book, Wealth Without Wall Street: A Main Street Guide to Making Money, such as moving your money to a local bank and not having a boatload of debt, were learned through hard and painful experiences. Experiences I want others to avoid.

When people hit it big, they need to stick to what they know, live below their means, avoid credit cards and loans, and put some money away for a rainy day.

Otherwise the first act can be a final act.

What I wrote in 2002

I checked this book out of the public library at a time when my business was near failure. It gave me the spirit to keep on and have a sucessful turnaround. Monahan is a hell of a great story and it comes from the heart. An orphan, high school dropout who overcomes everything and becomes a billionaire. Only in America.

Not great literature and hard to find but well worth having. Now that I own my own copy, I will never give it up.

Pizza Tiger is a great motivating tool for anyone wanting to run their own business.

Tom Monaghan is my son's hero and we wanted to know more about him. This is a great book for entrepreneurs to read and get a realistic view of how things are when you are struggling to build a business. Tom has a passion for making the best pizza and put this talent to work, by the grace of God, to build a successful business. More than that, Tom has become a Catholic hero for many young (and older) Catholics who want to learn to live their faith in the world, but not of the world! This book is a great intro to the life and thinking of Tom Monaghan.

You have to continually keep in mind that it was written in 1985, but the story of how Tom Monaghan started Domino's Pizza was interesting. I love it how it never occurred to him that he might fail. I also like how he admits to his big mistakes. I ordered this book from a third party seller on Amazon - the ISBN number was the same but it was a paperback, not a hardback as Amazon lists. Not the seller's fault since ISBN was identical.

Liked how he start from nothing and made it. Definitely a lot of problems in making it big but enjoyed how he layed it out on how he started. Once it got into all of his possessions I lost interest, but worth the read
