"Teh controversy generated by the NBR's annual Rich List testifies to New Zealanders' conflicting attitudes about wealth. For a nation founded on solid settler principles of earnest endeavour, modesty in achievement and classlessness, making money has long presented something of a dilemma. That ambivalence is shown by the absence of a literature celebrating the endeavours of business innovators in this country. The Rich List goes some way toward redressing that imbalance. Journalist Graeme Hunt examines the lives and legacies of New Zealanders who have made their mark on our history through their efforts at wealth creation. The book starts with he earliest days of European settlement and follows the changing patterns of wealth-creation through to the present day, encountering a diverse range of talent, hard work and luck along the way. There are the pioneer whalers and run-holders in the south, the merchants and traders in the north; business dynasties like the Todds, Fletchers and Myers, go-it-alone entrepreneurs like Sir Robert Kerridge and Sir Robert Jones; financial kingpins like Sir Michael Fay and Alan Gibbs, entertainment rich like Sam Neil and Lucy Lawless; and a good many unassuming and hard-working businesspeople."
