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.

"When you share your life with a true achiever it's hard to
fully comprehend the impact they can have on the broader community.
Unfortunately for my family, I learned about that impact the day
John passed away."

?Patricia Ilhan, co-founder, Ilhan Food Allergy

"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

?Brendan Fleiter, Chief Executive Officer, Crazy

"...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."

?Eddie McGuire, President, Collingwood Football
