Reviews
"The Mall is the dipstick of our 20th-century culture. It's a quart down and dirty and James Farrell is telling us why."--Paco Underhill, author of Why We Buy and managing director of Envirosell

"James Farrell shares his deeply held moral conviction that there is something wrong with a society based on the continued cycle of 'work-and-spend, ' but he never preaches, and, like many other Americans, he revels in the details of the mall experience. Carefully researched, often laugh-aloud funny, and sometimes brilliant, One Nation under Goods is an important book."--Susan Strasser, author of Satisfaction Guaranteed: The Making of the American Mass Market and Waste and Want: A Social History of Trash.
