About this book:

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.
