Produktbeschreibungen

From Library Journal

The late Sam Walton was one of the shrewdest and richest merchants in America. Centered on the building of his Wal-Mart empire, his book, like fellow magnate Sandra Kurtzig's CEO: Building a $400 Million Company from Ground Up ( LJ 5/1/91), is light on biography. However, readers will enjoy the folksy narrative of the small-town millionaire who revolutionized retail distribution. Walton also addresses accusations against him, such as running the competition out of town. Coauthor Huey does a fine job of incorporating candid testimonials from family members and associates, who thought Walton's ideas were sometimes silly. Shortly after Walton's death, the book was given an overly sentimental postscript (a minor detraction) and rushed into print. Highly recommended for public and academic business collections.

Pressestimmen

"[A] 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 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

"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

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

5.0 von 5 Sternen A *must* for your personal library 17. Mai 2000
Von Alan Peto
Format:Taschenbuch
No matter what you think of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., Sam Walton really was a great leader and businessperson. This book is sort of a 'holy grail' for those who wish to make it not only in life but in virtually any time of environment where you have customers (this also means customers that DON'T pay, for example Government, etc.).
I work for a division of Wal-Mart, SAM'S Club, and this book is 'required reading' by everyone in the manager in training (MIT) program. We're working on getting several of these for our associate training room.
If you follow what Mr. Sam explains in this book, you will have very little problems you can't fix. Sure people will try to take advantage of you, but they are such a minority after they find out that you are really there trying to take care of them...that's how the 'Wal-Mart family' aptmosphere takes hold.
Are all Wal-Mart stores up to par? Probally not and that's not anyones fault really. The company has thousands of stores and hundreds of clubs and not to mention hundreds of international locations. The challenge is getting everyone to 'become' Mr. Sam and this book should be required reading to help in that effort. The principles are simple to learn and follow and have helped thousands if not millions.
Final word...purchase this book and learn why Wal-Mart is so large and successful today and apply it to your own organization and company.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An extraordinary business tale 13. Februar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
No matter what your opinion of Wal Mart, this is an great story of a man with a dream, and one of the most successful entrepreneurs of the last century. It details how Wal Mart came to be the company it is today, including: strategies for finding new store locations, attracting customers, keeping them coming back, adding a personal touch to the discount shopping experience, merchandising, and community relations. Aside from the busines apects, this is a tale of a man took everything in stride including everyday setbacks to the fame and (increadible) fortune amassed during his life time. Like everything else at Wal Mart this book will only cost you a few bucks. If you despise Wal Mart or the book, it might come in handy if you run out of toilet paper.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great retail trade book 23. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is especially fascinating because you read about where many of the ideas and principles of all of the major retailers came from. i.e. 10 foot rule, satisfaction guaranteed, everyday low prices, we buy big, you save big etc...

5.0 von 5 Sternen An autobiography by a great and honest merchant 17. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Sam Walton basically increased the salaries of everyone in America with a Wal-Mart near them by allowing them to save a little money on namebrand products (without hoping for their bosses to give them a raise). Sam Walton displays how the free enterprise system at its best can work for all of America. Thank you God for Sam Walton, a great American, in my view.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A surprisingly good read! 14. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I didn't really expect to like this book. Afterall, what could be so compelling about some guy who started a bunch of discount stores in Arkansas? Boy, was I wrong. This book is a jewel. It's a must read for anyone in business, whether a small business or a big corporation. You'll never look at a store the same way again after you read this book. You can easily believe that Sam Walton's approach would improve most business. Work hard. Work smart. Learn from your mistakes. Treat people right (employees and customers). Keep your eye on the ball and the bottom line. Don't listen to naysayers. Keep a smile on your face. Sounds like good advice to me!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Real American Story 19. April 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is not only the history of one of the best American enterprises ever, but also a word for the future. Those who are looking for some good advices how to sell this or that would be disappointed, but those who are looking for inspiration in their business or life might find it very fulfilling. There is no recipe for a good business in the book, but among the rules, that Sam Walton formulates at the end the most important, he says, is "Break all rules!". This book is a must read for every businessman.
