Globalization makes it difficult to know where the things you buy come from. Journalist and travel writer Kelsey Timmerman wanted to know where his clothes came from and who made them, so he traveled from Honduras to Bangladesh to Cambodia to China and back. Along the way, he met the people who made his favorite clothes and learned as much about them as he did about globalization itself. Enlightening and controversial at once, this book puts a human face on globalization.

An excellent read. Really interesting story along with the information. The author details his journey to these factories, his challenges along the way, and the people he meets that make his clothes and other people in the countries. It gives you a different perspective and is very engaging. I would recommend.
