From the Back Cover
--Patricia Ilhan, co-founder, Ilhan Food Allergy Foundation
"When John passed away we lost a truly wonderful person who was a giant at everything he did and a truly free spirit. The amazing thing was he'd only just started to make his mark on the wider community."
--Eddie McGuire, President, Collingwood Football Club
"...he was a migrant from Turkey who grew up in Broadmeadows and rose to a very senior position in our community. To my mind John lived until he was 100; he just did it in forty-two years."
--Brendan Fleiter, Chief Executive Officer, Crazy John's
John Ilhan: A Crazy Life tells the fascinating story of John Ilhan -- a working-class immigrant who overcame incredible odds to become one of the richest men in Australia. Founder of phenomenally successful mobile telephone company Crazy John's, Ilhan tragically passed away in 2007 at the age of forty-two.
As told through the eyes of his family, friends and colleagues, this poignant biography reveals new insights into the man behind Crazy John's, the wife and four children he left behind and his David and Goliath battle with Telstra. Ilhan's inspirational journey shows how self-belief, passion and a never-say-die attitude can see you achieve your dreams.--This text refers to the paperback edition.
