Any additional comments?

There's some good info here on running a business, though not to be taken as the final word on business. The real world is just not as cut & dry. But it does give great insight into efficiency.

Read the book over 10 years ago (and many times since), then got the audio. Simple & Easy to follow. This book is a classic. I only wish it were unabrigded.

Since Sam Walton's death in 1992, Wal-Mart has gone from being the largest retailer in the world to holding the top spot on the Fortune 500 list as the largest company in the world. Don Soderquist, who was senior vice chairman during that time, played a crucial role in that success. Sam Walton said, "I tried for almost 20 years to hire Don Soderquist....But when we really needed him later on, he finally joined up and made a great chief operating officer."

Wal-Mart does well because people shop there. They obviously know how to keep customers coming back for more. I found this book a great review of the basics of retailing that are so easy to forget when your running a business. A little more detail would've been nice though.
