LJ Hooker The Man

The Untold Story of an Australian Icon

“Natalia Hooker has created a book that should be read by all Australians.”  — Kevin Weldon AM

“Few family albums can tell such a rich Australian story – of a tenacious young man of Chinese descent who was determined to expand his business as fast as the rapidly growing country. Natalia Hooker’s tribute to her grandfather is meticulously researched, full of surprises, and leaps to life on every page. Fabulous.” — John Fitzgerald, author of Big White Lie – Chinese Australians in White Australia

Born illegitimate to a half-Chinese mother, orphaned at 8 and left school by 14, he created the biggest real estate company in Australia and was one of the largest property owners in the world.

LJ Hooker The Man is the richly illustrated biography of Sir Leslie Joseph “LJ” Hooker, a man of great vision and at the forefront of new ideas. Through his drive and persistence, LJ changed the real estate landscape of Australia.

This beautifully designed 300-page deluxe coffee table book has over 400 historical photographs and images, including photos of Australian cities and suburbs as they developed over the 20th century.
