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.
I’m so happy that Sam Walton took the time to write this wonderful book. Anyone interested in management, leadership, or growing a business would enjoy this book.

This book was inspirational, monumental at this point in my career, and the best part of all a great read. Reading about when, how, and where it all began for the company i work for was sincerely a read. This has motivated me in a tremendous way to do to better with how i operate, communicate, and lead my team and fellow associates. I know so many who got to meet and speak with Mr. Walton and reading this helped me understand that he was the exact person they described.
