Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet a genuine American folk hero cut from the homespun cloth of America's heartland: Sam Walton, who parlayed 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, inimitable words. Genuinely modest, but always sure if his ambitions 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.

Review:

"[A] wise and inspiring autobiography — Walton tells his quietly fantastic story with conviction and makes no bones about his mistakes." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"It's a story about entrepreneurship, 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

Review:

"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

Review:

"A sure-fire all-American success story." The New York Times Book Review
