The story of the undisputed merchant king of the late twentieth century. Sam Walton rolled up his sleeves in 1946 and didn’t stop until 1992. What he ended up creating was world’s largest private employer and the biggest company by revenue. In his autobiography, he pours his heart out, chronicling his strategies, successes, and mistakes.
In January 2017, I decided to read more biographies. The year started with Phil Knight’s Shoe Dog and Tony Hsieh’s Delivering Happiness. We covered both in Bookworm section of the earlier issues of Almanack. However, the most remarkable one which I read this year was Sam Walton’s autobiography – Made in America. For those who don’t know, Sam Walton was the founder of multinational discount retail chain — Wal-Mart.
