4.0 out of 5 stars A colourful yet penetrating introduction to globalization..., 4 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Globalization: Take It Personally (How Globalization affects you and powerful ways to challenge it) (Paperback)
With a focus on one of the largest untruths of our age, Take It Personally provides a colourful yet personal introduction to globalization and why it has failed to benefit all mankind in the way it's advocates declared it would.
With all the themes it tackles this could have easily turned into a wholly depressing analysis. However, the best and most useful parts of the book offer hope. Contributions from various non-governmental organisations detail the examples of success that have occurred when action is taken. This shows all is not yet lost and people can take control again in a world that is increasingly putting profit before people. There are numerous suggestions for readers to take positive steps to help in this. Many web site listings are given suggesting ways to pursue involvement further and gain a more detailed knowledge.
Anita Roddick has achieved a wonderful balance of providing an ostentatious and easily accessible addition to anyone's coffee table, whilst giving a starting point to exploring many ways and means in which anyone can get involved in making change a reality. Although mostly written before the tragedy in New York on September 11th, the author states the message Take It Personally delivers is more important than ever, to focus on the issues which are truly important, freedom and fairness.
