Oor hierdie boek:

Whitey Basson is hailed as a genius by his peers. He became a legend when, in the famous takeover deal in SA, he bought OK Bazaars for the nominal sum of a single Rand. In this authorised biography, financial journalist Niel Joubert pieces together the complex, fascinating story of how Basson grew Shoprite from eight small stores into the largest retailer in Africa, and the 35th largest retailer in the world. 

Lees uittreksel

Lesers sê

'Whitey Basson is a visionary leader ... It is an honour and privilege to consider Whitey a brother.'

– Patrice Motsepe


'Very few people have impressed me more than Whitey Basson when it comes to discipline, hard work and self-sacrifice. While I could identify with his incredible work ethic, it was his generosity of spirit that saw my respect for the man develop into a bond of friendship.'

– Jonty Rhodes
