A very informative book, but also kind of depressing. The big retailer's hold on the consumer is near total.

I will never look at shopping the same way again! I recommend this book for consumers who do not appreciate being duped.

This book on disc offered more detail than I was interested. However I did learn a great deal about discounting and retailing in general. Glad to have heard it but I never would have made it thru the print version.
