An enjoyable read of non-fiction comes in the form of Shoptimism: A Journey into the Heart and Mind of the American Consumer by Lee Eisenberg. To buy or not to buy? That is not the only question motivating America’s therapeutic foray into retail consumption. What Americans buy does affect the rest of the world; as examined by Eisenberg in two sections: Sell Side and Buy Side. It is an entertainingly easy read that may alter the way you buy next time.
