Reviews for the Spanish Edition:

'The author of this book clarifies all legends about Zara in order to explain the key to success of a company that at first sold housecoats and later on has become the second biggest clothes seller in the world.' - El País

'Analyzing in detail the history of a company, especially if it is on active service, represents a very important action for those who have already begun to build their own businesses, work in other sectors but want to know more about other cases.' - ABC
