Fed up with fast-fashion and mindless shopping? So was Inger. By committing to a 12-month shop-stop, she delves into the polarizing world of fast-fashion and returns with a bunch of questions. Why do we think shopping is the ultimate female bonding experience? Are people who don´t shop super boring? Considering that the planet is running out of natural resources, should we only shop at ethical stores? And how come everyone always says ´´I have nothing to wear´´ when in the history of the world we´ve never owned more clothes than we do today? Part memoir, part series of unscientific observations, How Do I Look? demystifies shopping and calls for a redefinition of what it means to be a conscious consumer in the 21st century. 1.

By one expert´s prediction, within 20 years half of Americans will have body implants that tell retailers how they feel about specific products as they browse their local stores. The notion may be outlandish, but it reflects executives´ drive to understand shoppers in the aisles with the same obsessive detail that they track us online. In fact, a hidden surveillance revolution is already taking place inside brick-and-mortar stores, where Americans still do most of their buying. Drawing on his interviews with retail executives, analysis of trade publications, and experiences at insider industry meetings, advertising and digital studies expert Joseph Turow pulls back the curtain on these trends, showing how a new hyper-competitive generation of merchants - including Macy´s, Target, and Walmart - is already using data mining, in-store tracking, and predictive analytics to change the way we buy, undermine our privacy, and define our reputations. 1.
