This book is essential reading for every resident and small retailer in a town trying to compete with the major retailers already in town, or making plans to come to your town, such as Wal-Mart, Sam's Club, BJ's, Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Rite Aid, Target and others which put the smaller independent retailers out of business, and injure the town, the remaining businesses, the tax base, and drive wages and employment and business opportunities down, and destroy much of the town. There are things that can be done by the people in such a town to make the town inhospitable to these corporations, and encourage them to take their evil business practices elsewhere. This book should be read by everyone in the town, and you can bet that among the first readers of the book will be these major retailers, getting to learn as much as they can about their competition.
