Gerry Harvey, the dynamo behind Harvey Norman is Australia's greatest retailed. He started out selling vacuum cleaners door- to door; today he runs a global company that stretches from Slovenia to Sydney.
Gerry was a multimillionaire by the 1980s, when he lost his first retail empire, the Norman Ross group, to Alan Bond. So he started all over again, this time with Harvey Normal Holdings, one of the most successful stocks ever to hit the Australian market.
The Harvey Norman story is one of the shrewd strategy, breathtaking gambles and a will to wind without betraying the basic principles of honesty and fair play. Despite his legendary status in corporate Australia, this is the first book about Gerry Harvey.
