5.0 out of 5 stars He built the biggest retailer in the world from scratch, 15 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Sam Walton : Made in America My Story (Mass Market Paperback)
Wal-Mart can be loved and hated at the same time, but there is no question that its success is unmatched by other corporations in the world. Sam Walton revolutionized the retail industry. He knew from the beginning that customers wanted low prices, so he was determined to deliver them. Unfortunately, this also meant low wages for all the employees, but since he was extremely frugal himself, he did not see it as a problem.

He built Wal-Mart from scratch in a small town in Arkansas. To come up with the best ideas, he visited many stores and borrowed from them if he thought they would be beneficial. Originally, his business model was only implemented in small towns, but as the company grew larger, expansions included big cities. Today, many businesses around the world are learning from Wal-Mart's success and applying its concepts just like Walton borrowed ideas from others. I found this book to be very educational.
