As a young man of 25, Robert Laidlaw launched a small mail-order business. With daring courage he overcame world wars, economic depression and tragic loss to build one of the largest retail chains in the Southern Hemisphere. From the highlands of Scotland to the shores of New Zealand, from Henry Ford's moving assembly line in Detroit to the beaches of Normandy, this panoramic biography of one of the 20th century's greatest businessmen is a story that will capture your heart and inspire you to action. A must-read for business professionals.
