Simple. Real. And to the point! If you listen to a lot of Dave Ramsey then much of this is old news, but it is nice to have all of the steps clearly and thoroughly laid out. And Ramsey does a great job narrating!

In April 1956, a refitted oil tanker carried 58 shipping containers from Newark to Houston. From that modest beginning, container shipping developed into a huge industry that made the boom in global trade possible. The Box tells the dramatic story of the container's creation, the decade of struggle before it was widely adopted, and the sweeping economic consequences of the sharp fall in transportation costs that containerization brought about.

Great story and narrator. The first half of the book is a fascinating and (to me) exciting story of entrepreneurs changing the way the world works.

The last half of the book unfortubately reads like a textbook. The information is important and interesting, but there's not much soul behind it.
