This review is from: The Box: How the Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and the World Economy Bigger (Paperback)
This is the story of how world changed because one man speculated there was a more efficient way to do something that had remained unchanged for 3,000 years. It is truly inspiring while it could have been dull in the hands of a lesser writer instead this book is extremely well written, wide in scope and deep in detail.
Rattles along like a novel; there's our hero Malcom McLean, his quest, there are internal and external challenges - the rising challenges, the falling challenges. As a true story of success and achievement in history - this has it all, a unique hero who successfully lead three flotations on the NYSE. A real page turner - not something often said about Logistics!
