Stephen Cooper is trying to turn around Krispy Kreme, once a great success story which went south in a hurry.
This enjoyable 2003 book, Making Dough:The 12 Secret Ingredients of Krispy Kreme's Sweet Success now seems a bit sad in retrospect, but hopefully good times will come again for a company with a great product.
