Interesting 800-CEO-READ podcast with Charles Fishman, author of The Wal-Mart Effect. Charles wrote the book in order to try and move the conversation on from its current pro versus anti framing. Seeking to explain instead of excuse is something we need to become more comfortable with doing in order to make the world a better place.
