"Wise and inspiring autobiography... Walton tells his quietly fantastic story with conviction and makes no bones about his mistakes." -- "San Francisco Chronicle." It's a story about entrepreneur, and risk, and hard work, and knowing where you want to go and being willing to do what it takes to get there. And it's a story about believing in your idea even when maybe some other folks don't, and about sticking to your guns. Sam Walton. Meet a genuine American folk hero cut from the homespun cloth of America's heartland: Sam Walton, who turned a single dime store in a hardscrabble cotton town into Wal-Mart, the largest retailer in the world. The undisputed merchant king of the late twentieth century, Sam never lost the common touch. Here, finally, Sam Walton tells his extraordinary story in his won inimitable words. Genuinely modest, but always sure of his ambitious and achievements, Sam shares his thinking in a candid, straight-from-the-shoulder style. In a story rich with anecdotes and the "rules of the road" of both Main Street and Wall Street, Sam Walton chronicles the inspiration, heart, and optimism that propelled him to lasso the American Dream. "Here is an extraordinary success story about a man whose empire was built not with smoke and mirrors, but with good old-fashioned elbow grease." -- "Detroit Free Press."

    Sam is a humble guy, as you read this book you pick up ideas and start to realise the world we live in is filled with opportunity. Sam made his fortunate but lowering his personal gain to help the customer. It's a shame no true Wallmart has every crossed the ocean. It's concept has potential, and any Brit can get behind greater efficiency. An excellent read. Life changer.

    I was writing a university essay that required some research on Asda and Wal Mart. This book was really interesting and provided some good quotes for leadership. Sam's story is certainly inspirational and I have to admit I found myself getting emotional towards the end of the book.

    A fascinating character and a must read for everyone who is into entrepreneurship.

    The quality of the book is so poor. The cover page is not as shown in the photo. some pages are duplicated, and the other has some printing problems. Kindly see the attached photo to understand what I mean.
