I worked for Clarks in one of their satellite factories for 13 years, and I was given this book for my birthday. If it is an in-depth history of the family and the central business you are after, then this is for you. If, like me, you would like to see factory- floor photographs and be reminded of the manufacturing side of the company, then you will be disappointed. The effect that Clarks had on the economy and social life of a number of West-Country communities is largely ignored. Of course, this is my personal view, but I feel that there was the potential for a much more interesting book.

Not an accurate record. It would seem the author was fed the information from a few sources rather than doing his own Independent research.
It may record the early days accurately but not recent times or important strategies that brought about the changes that the Company is benefitting from to day
Clarks was and is a great Company.The book and its author do not do it justice

An interesting family history and business history of this Quaker family and Firm. A lot of detail, much of which I skipped, but a lot of references, a good book to keep and browse at a later date.

Delivered promptly in excellent condition. It's the kind of book that you can pick up and put down at will. Anyone with an interest in the history of retailing, will enjoy this enormously.

Bought this as a gift for someone who had family connections to a former Clarks executive. They were absolutely delighted with the content and presentation of the book. There was an added bonus in that that their relative was actually referred to in one of the chapters.I know she has recommended it to other family members.
