Have you ever wondered why every "tourist attraction" has a gift shop? Have you wondered why gift shops, stores where you buy useless meaningless trinkets for other people, exist at all? Wonder no more. The answer, according to this book, is the corporatization of every aspect of our lives.
I totally bought into the message of the book-- that corporations are unnatural constructs that have injected themselves into our lives in unhealthy ways. Consequently, they turned us into input/output units, rather than persons who are loving-breathing-running-jumping human beings.
My one big complaint is the narrator. He has a breathless, gasping style with a sense of astonishment that gives the impression that everything is awful and the world is about to end. Other than that, this is a great listen.
