This is a true story of a former Wal-Mart employee who was falsely accused of shoplifting a pouch of chewing tobacco and fired from his job weeks after the incident occurred. The motive for Wal-Mart's actions was the result of a comment made to a brash Loss Prevention supervisor after he made a bad impression by such allegations. It took five years and a trial to obtain the original investigative report and expose Wal-Mart's bad decisions. Wal-Mart knew of, but failed to disclose, this report during discovery, an abuse of the system which Wal-Mart could not defend their illogical decisions and their own witness's states so under oath. A jury returned a verdict in my favor with an $8,500,000 damage award.

This jury award was a slap in the Wal-Mart's smiley face and they cried. It "shocked their conscience" and David defeated Goliath once again. This is a tell all book of Wal-Mart and how they continue to treat their employees, vendors, and even their customers. It discusses the terrible business practices and underhanded legal maneuvers by a well known company which affects every family in the world. It has tidbits of humor scattered throughout, with actual trial transcripts and real names of everyone involved. Perhaps you know some of these people.

This book is similar to a who-done-it and was written to enlighten as well as entertain. After reading, you be the judge and determine right versus wrong and whether or not Wal-Mart is a good and honest neighbor. This book covers vital topics, is educational, and once read, you may never enter another Wal-Mart. And if you do, you will at least be aware that you are a potential thief, by Wal-Mart's standards. Could Wal-Mart be the next Enron or Worldcom? You be the judge.
