Outstanding story of Mr. Walton and his vision for affordable retail shopping in America. Chronicles the struggles of this great entrepreneur, and loyalty of his wife thru the process. She lived in fear that they would be penniless because Mr. Walton had so much debt. Story proves that if you have faith in yourself and your vision, your goals can be accomplished. As an entrepreneur myself, I found this book very inspiring and full of motivational ideas. Highly recommend to anyone who either has or wants to start his own business.

While I have always been an opponent to the Wal Mart corporation and the sheer size of its business, I have a new found respect for the company and its founder. From humble beginnings (all the way to the end), you really have to hand it to Walton for his persistence in business.

Meet a genuine American folk hero cut from the homespun cloth of America's heartland: Sam Walton, who parlayed a single dime store in a hardscrabble cotton town into Wal-Mart, the largest retailer in the world. The undisputed merchant king of the late twentieth century, Sam never lost the common touch. Here, finally, inimitable words. Genuinely modest, but always sure if his ambitions and achievements. Sam shares his thinking in a candid, straight-from-the-shoulder style.

In a story rich with anecdotes and the "rules of the road" of both Main Street and Wall Street, Sam Walton chronicles the inspiration, heart, and optimism that propelled him to lasso the American Dream.
