Description - Next to Me by David Jones

Arriving at NEXT plc in a blaze of publicity, David Jones has turned the fortunes of the retailer around from near bankruptcy to becoming the most talked about & successful retailer of the last 20 years - an astounding turnaround which saw the NEXT stockmarket valuation increase from 25m to 4bn during his leadership.But it has not been without cost, he has fought through hardship and here talks for the first time about his secret battle with Parkinson's Disease, diagnosed when he was only in his 30's - a secret he kept even from his wife and family for many years. His guts and glory story takes in his rise to fame; his early days at WH Smiths (from delivery boy to being offered the Chairmanship!) to Kay's catalogue through to GUS, Grattan and onto NEXT.
