Praise

“The best Wal-Mart expose yet . . . as measured by depth and breadth of research, writing style, and evenhanded treatment.” The Denver Post

“Highly readable, incisive, precise, and even elegant.” San Francisco Chronicle

“The Wal-Mart Effect is an interesting look at how big corporations affect our planet in positive and negative ways. The strength . . . is in the stories about the lives that Wal-Mart has touched, set against the backdrop of an astounding array of data.” USA Today

“Insightful.” BusinessWeek

“The Wal-Mart Effect saunters through the influential economic ‘ecosystem’ that the discount chain represents with clarity, compelling nuance, and refreshing objectivity.” The Christian Science Monitor

“A must-read if one is even to begin understanding the global dominance of Wal-Mart.” The Washington Post
