ew of the Walmart that countless broadcast and print media sources have been reporting for years: Walmart isn't quite the good neighbor or benevolent retailer their marketing department wants us to believe they are. Griggs is neither a novelist nor an investigative journalist, but that's what makes After the Verdict all the more disquieting. While Griggs documents how Walmart mistreats it's employees, supports overseas manufacturing and even profiles it's customers, he's the first to tell you that the retailer has excellent prices in its pharmacy. He immerses us completely in the Walmart culture -warts and all- without any unnecessary Walmart bashing. He's got a story to tell and does so in his unhurried, thoughtful southern cadence. After all, this is a former Mississippi Highway State Trooper who spent almost 5 years of his life and nearly lost everything to prove that he did not steal a dollar and fifty cents worth of chewing tobacco.Very quickly, After the Verdict becomes a destined-for-Hollywood-must-read guilty pleasure once we're introduced to Walmart's cadre of senior level executives, department managers, missing witnesses, and high-priced shark attorneys (one of whom is now a Mississippi gubernatorial candidate!). And yes, there's even a happy ending here for Griggs. And in case there's any doubt of just how frivolous Walmart's case against him was, Griggs even includes the complete trial transcript.You will get a great understanding of complete corporate dominance.If you were anti-Walmart before reading After the Verdict, you'll be even more so after just two chapters. And loyal shoppers may think twice before ever entering the store again.As the saying goes, "You couldn't make this stuff up". With After the Verdict, you won't have to.
