quote 2013-07-22 22:53
"We're so used to getting what we want at Wal-Mart, so used to punching the buttons on the remote to find the show we want, so used to custom-ordering our computers, our cars, our food (just have it your way), that we tend to apply that to our relationship to the church and then to God the Father...

We want Wal-God - a god who is one of our own making, who exists to serve us when we want and how we want."

Super Center Savior, p48

The Wal-Mart Effect: How the World's Most Powerful Company Really Works--and How It's Transforming the American Economy - Charles Fishman

This was a book I read years ago, and re-read just now. It wasn't on my TBR list, but I was looking for a new book, stumbled upon this one, and ran right through it. It's one of those books that you can read over and over again, and catch new things you didn't see the first time. New things stuck out for me in this reading than the first time I read it, and I liked it just as much. It's a fantastic read, easy to read and understand, well written, and very thought provoking.

The Wal-Mart Effect: How the World's Most Powerful Company Really Works - and How It's Transforming the American Economy - Charles Fishman Interesting look at the store and brand. I try not to shop at Wal-Mart, and this book did not change my mind. I hate the crowds, the feeling of commercialism, the overall cheapness. I think the book does a pretty good job at showing the good AND the bad, although personally I felt there's certainly a LOT more bad than good here.

I think it's worth reading if you're at all interested in the store, as a fan or a critic.
