PRAISE FOR On Target
"A retailing dynasty, spanning a century and four generations, and still a hot-shot winner: that makes fascinating reading. Throw in legendary names, bare-knuckle business battles, and the discount wars, and you have a textbook that reads like a novel. On Target is a winner itself."
Anchor, Wall Street Journal Editorial Board with Stuart Varney on CNBC
"An enlightening look at the history and culture of the Target Corporation, with compelling management lessons for all retailers."
Kevin Kelleher, Chief Financial Officer, Sony Music Entertainment

The book will become ‘the bible’ for a generation that wants to understand their own spending habits or tap into the culture of American retailing. Rowley artfully gets behind the business decisions that keep Target’s products ahead of the curve and connecting emotionally with its customers. For anyone who considers themselves a creative, marketing or innovative thinker, this is a rich read indeed."
