The Wal-Mart Effect is about Wal-Mart the company, its founding and its operations, and the way in which it deals with its employees and suppliers. It’s also about much more than just the company of Wal-Mart, though: it tells the story of how Wal-Mart, and the ideology that drives the people who run it, has changed the landscape in America in a myriad of ways.
I really thought that this book would be good. It’s recent, about the changes that online collaboration have brought about, and focuses on the positive side of “The Web 2.0”.
Sadly, it wasn’t. Good, that is.
