Picture a familiar scene: long lines of shoppers waiting to check out at the grocery store, carts filled to the brim with the week?s food. While many might wonder what is in each cart, Andrew Warnes implores us to consider the symbolism of the cart itself. In his inventive new book, Warnes examines how the everyday shopping cart is connected to a complex web of food production and consumption that has spread from the United States throughout the world. Today, shopping carts represent choice and autonomy for consumers, a recognizable American way of life that has become a global phenomenon. This succinct and and accessible book provides an excellent overview of consumerism and the globalization of American culture.

Author and journalist Gene Fowler put it best: “Writing is easy; all you do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until the drops of blood form on your forehead.” Anyone who has ever wanted or been required to create something more complicated than a shopping list or a Tweet knows there’s more truth than poetry in the observation. The process can be difficult, frustratingly so when we realize that although we use words all the time, coming up with the right ones can be a daunting task. Even the most celebrated writers have reflected on this creative process, and their observations and conclusions are collected in this book. The compiler, himself no stranger to a blank page or computer screen, has selected the wisest and wittiest utterances on such subjects as why we write (Ernest Hemingway: “I have a good life but I must write because if I do not write a certain amount I do not enjoy the rest of my life.”); how to write (Anton Chekhov: “Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”); and writing for money (Cormac McCarthy: “I never had any doubts about my abilities. I knew I could write. I just had to figure out how to eat while doing this.”). It has been said that reading won’t make you a good writer, but it will make you a better writer. Dip into this lively and useful treasure trove, and you’ll be well on your way.
As I reflect upon the times that I spent with my mother doing the simple things, my heart fills with joy. These are the instances that I miss the most when I think about my childhood. Her constant love and care were ever present, surrounding me like a warm blanket. My life has not been the same since my mother?s passing. Holding on to the pleasant memories and the many lessons that she taught brings me the strength to move on. If I had one more day on earth with my beloved mother, I would do the simple things like talking, laughing, taking her for a drive the way I used to do on the weekends, helping her with her shopping, and sitting with her to enjoy a nice meal. This book describes such a day.
FutureShop is a book about change. In particular, it's about how our consumer culture is rapidly evolving to allow us to live better, richer lives for less. The catalyst to this change is eBay and similar sites that are quickly growing into mainstream shopping venues and creating unprecedented levels of liquidity for our everyday goods. The wave of the future will be temporary ownership—consumers will be able to buy what they really want because they'll be able to easily sell it when they are ready to upgrade to the next item on their wish list. Veteran Web entrepreneur Daniel Nissanoff's invaluable heads-up explores why this change is taking place and discusses what consumers and businesses can do in order to benefit from this new paradigm.
