"What brilliant fun and insight this book provides--a friendly, provocative sketch of the neo-imperial sneaker and how its powers of fantasy conquered hearts and minds, then the world." --William Greider, author of One World, Ready or Not "While Tom Vanderbilt is always funny, iconoclastic, and penetrating, The Sneaker Book is no laughing matter. In this harrowing sprint around the global track of corporate capital, Vanderbilt reveals a world of exploitation, greed, and insanity Charles Dickens himself could not have dreamed up." --Robin D.G. Kelley, author of Yo' Mama's Dis Funktional!
