Wal-Mart's mighty presence is no longer restricted to America. To the alarm of the UK retail sector, June 1999 saw Wal-Mart devour Asda. And given Wal-Mart's track record in the rest of the world, such alarm is well-founded. For instance, within seven years of Wal-Mart invading Canada and Mexico it became the largest retailer in both countries. It took less than two years for it to become the fourth largest retailer in Germany, while France and several Scandinavian countries now look destined for Wal-Mart's shopping basket. In Sam We Trust offers an exhaustive in-depth investigation into this powerful retailing empire. Bob Ortega, The Wall Street Journal's authority on Wal-Mart, goes beyond the headlines and Sam Walton's carefully crafted public image to reveal the ruthless penny-pinching manipulator behind the visionary genius. He also provides an illuminating history of retailing that includes case studies of such important Wal-Mart competitors as Sears, J.C. Penny, Price Clubs and, of course, Kmart. In Sam We Trust describes in detail not only how Wal-Mart became what it is, but also how it works today. In this new edition, Bob Ortega brings us up to date with Wal-Mart's worldwide shopping spree and gives us a unique peep behind the doors of the Asda deal and its likely impact on British retailing, shoppers and communities. In Sam We Trust provides a fascinating context for current developments: Ortega's incisive analysis of Sam Walton's controversial rise to power and the creation of the world's most successful retail business makes for a shocking yet compelling read.

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 twenty years to hire Don Soderquist . . . But when we really needed him later on, he finally joined up and made a great chief operating officer." Responsible for overseeing many of Wal-Mart's key support divisions, including real estate, human resources, information systems, logistics, legal, corporate affairs, and loss prevention, Soderquist stayed true to his Christian values as well as Wal-Mart's distinct management style. "Probably no other Wal-Mart executive since the legendary Sam Walton has come to embody the principles of the company's culture-or to represent them within the industry-as has Don Soderquist," Discount Store News once reported. In The Wal-Mart Way, Soderquist shares his story of helping lead a global company from being a $43 billion company to one that would eventually exceed $200 billion. Several books have been written about Wal-Mart's success, but none by the ones who were the actual players. It was more than "Everyday Low Prices" and distribution that catapulted the company to the top. The core values based on Judeo-Christian principles-and maintained by leaders such as Soderquist-are the real reason for Wal-Mart's success.
