JOHN ILHAN: A CRAZY LIFE is a compelling look at the meteoric rise of John Ilhan, founder of the successful mobile telephone company Crazy John's and number one on the 2005 BRW Young Rich List before his sudden and tragic death in October 2007 at the age of 42. Turkish immigrant, practising Muslim, self-made millionaire and generous philanthropist, Ilhan's fascinating story is an inspirational and motivational look at how self belief, strong resolve and a never-say-die attitude can transform your world. JOHN ILHAN: A CRAZY LIFE is a revealing insight into the once-in-a-lifetime story of how a one-man business came to both transform and dominate the telecommunications market. Including coverage of John's legal stoush and ultimate business break with Telstra and his never-before-revealed plans for business expansion beyond Australia, this is a must-read for anyone wanting a blueprint for professional and personal success.
