Pushing the Limits

A native of Czechoslovakia, Lowy is a Holocaust survivor who left Eastern Europe in 1946 to fight in the Jewish underground in what was Palestine, fighting Arabs during the day, he studied at night. Immigrating to Australia in 1951, Lowy started out by delivering sandwiches for a Sydney deli. He made his first real estate profit subdividing a vacant lot. By 1974, he had become Australia's dominant mall operator. With Australia conquered, he turned to the US. Lowy is betting he can change the shopping habits of consumers in America.

I would recommend Frank Lowy’s auto-biography, A Second Life, Frank is of course the Chairman of the Westfield Group. His is a story of coming out of Europe post-depression and making a very humble start to go onto to build the business which we know today. I like autobiographies and case studies as I find them to be a great source of inspiration.
