Sam Walton: Made In America by Sam WaltonJust in case you might not realize it, the huge Walmart corporation was actually started and grown quite large by one main individual and his name was Sam Walton. This book is his personal and business story and I Highly recommended it!
My 14 yr. old son and I listened to the audio version and it was fantastic! There were incredibly few places where Walton went against any libertarian principles that I could tell. And his explaining the nitty-gritty of motivating people and trying to get them to be more comfortable with and thrive under the constant change that is the marketplace was just fantastic.
Of course he gives a wonderfully folksy description of the history of his with the help of many, many associates building the great Wal-Mart corp. Lots of neat comments from his family, top Wal-Mart employees and others regularly interspersed in his story.
The book was never boring and seemed quite fair. He admitted in the book to making many mistakes, and that was nice to see. He did not come across as arrogant at all, just very strong willed and having almost unbounded energy and focus on the business.
The different tactics he used to motivate Wal-Mart team members, to entice customers was simply wonderful to hear... especially since my son seemed to appreciate them too. He actually looked forward to hearing more of the book as we drove to and from his school each day for a few weeks.
The positive, can-do, attitude that radiates from the book is something more folks could use, including myself. I recommend this book often. My only regret is that it took me about 15-18 years from the time that my wife recommended it to me, till I actually got the audio version and listened to it.
