An old wooden plow adorns the entrance to the Istanbul headquarters of Sakip Sabanci's business empire, a poignant reminder of his family's rags-to-riches story. "My father began life from zero as a humble cotton worker. He was very careful with money and saved, saved, saved," said Sabanci, 56, an eccentric billionaire whose interests range from electronics, banking and textiles to hotels and bottled water.

Sakip Sabanci does not take his accomplishments lightly. A section in one of the 13 books he has written about himself and his views is called "The Importance of My Having Met Three American Presidents."
