An absolute must read. My favorite thing about it is that it's pretty objective overall; this book is neither pro Wal-mart nor anti Wal-mart. It tells the good along with the bad. It's extremely readable and everything was so interesting that I made it through this one pretty quickly. Whether you're an avid Wal-mart shopper, a Wal-mart hater or somewhere in between, this should really be on your wish list.
