Celebrating the centenary of Wesfarmers Limited, this is the incredible story of how a humble farmers’ co-operative with a paid-up capital of only £2,052 evolved into one of Australia’s top ten companies.

Wesfarmers today is a $50 billion business embracing the Coles Group, Bunnings, Target, Kmart, the Curragh and Bengalla coalmines, and other national retailers and services. Based on interviews with scores of past and present staff and the families of the company’s founding fathers, Wesfarmers 100: The People’s Story 1914–2014 highlights the many surprising, sometimes controversial and always colourful events that accompanied the co-operative on its extraordinary journey.

Rich in fascinating personalities and marked by memorable events, this book is not only a fitting tribute to the company’s founders, its bold leadership and its dedicated workforce, but holds up a mirror to Australia’s industrial development.

An engaging read littered with colourful tales about how a little farmer’s co-op became one of Australia’s greatest companies. A must read for anyone wanting to know how Wesfarmers created a culture of success. - The Australian Finacial Review pp.320 #011214/0818 First Edition Wrapper intact, in slipcase.
