About the Author

Christopher Mims writes Keywords, a weekly technology column, for the Wall Street Journal. Before joining the Journal in 2014, he was the lead technology reporter for Quartz, and has written on science and tech for MIT Technology Review, Smithsonian, Wired, Atlantic, and Scientific American, among other outlets. He has a degree in neuroscience and behavioral biology from Emory University and lives in Baltimore, Maryland.

Wall Street Journal technology columnist Mims chronicles a product's journey from manufacturer to doorstep in his timely debut. . . . Readers will be hooked by Mims's ability to turn what could've been a dry supply-chain explainer into a legitimate page-turner. For those interested in what goes on before packages arrive at their door, this is a no-brainer.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Mims writes in a digestible style that conveys a pleasing you-are-there quality, and he does not shy away from describing the vast economic inequalities involved in the movement of commodities and the indifference of many managers toward their workers . . . A surprisingly absorbing foray into the optimization of product flow.--Kirkus Reviews
Mims will have readers enthralled with the minutiae of what he calls a 'sophisticated field of human endeavor.' This book will appeal to general audiences and those in any part of the industry.--Booklist
