Best-selling author Hunter Davies tells the riveting tale of this Great British entrepreneur and fellow Cumbrian.
Eddie Stobart lorries are known and loved nationwide. If you've never seen an Eddie Stobart truck, you've never driven down a British motorway. This is the extraordinary story of the man who created a multimillion pound business that spawned a middle-class motorway game, of personal and commercial struggles that ended up in creating on of the UK most recognisable brands
A quintessentially quirky tale, The Eddie Stobart Story proves that it is possible for someone with no academic qualifications to make millions in a traditional industry. (Note, this book was first published in 2001 and so only refers to the first 25 years of the ESL history)
