Slam-dunking Wal-Mart: How You Can Sto/Norman, Al/Hardb/096248086X/S047-D2
"All of a sudden, there was this huge 300 pound gorilla sitting on my sofa, smoking a cigarette and kicking my cat, and saying "we want to be in your community on our terms..."
The 300 pound gorilla wanted to invade author Al Norman's hometown of Greenfield, Massachusetts. Wal-Mart was willing to spend lots of money and resources to make sure it got its way.
But Al and a small band of concerned activists put on a longshot campaign and managed to slay the powerful Goliath in their town.
Now, Al Norman wants to enlist you in the ongoing fight to preserve hometown businesses and hometown values.
Slam-Dunking Wal-Mart is written in two parts. The first part describes why Wal-Mart, Home Depot and their kin are a threat to small community life in America.
The second part gives you a game plan to stop Wal-Mart and other big-box retailers in your home town, much the way Al Norman and other concerned citizens kept Wal-Mart out of Greenfield.
This book is a call for the preservation of all the qualities we love about hometown America. It is one man's David versus Goliath story. It can also be a road map for your community's fight to keep its downtown businesses and core values.
