Original print version
I first read this book (original printing) as a college student for a class on the social situation in developing countries. This book is excellent. While brief, it gives an excellent introduction into the working conditions of women in sweatshops. Many black and white photos. While the book is slightly dated it is sad to note that the working conditions have not changed much.

I read the book again before being sent overseas to address problems developing at my company's factories. While being chartered to fix the technical problems, it was beneficial to be aware of the social issues. I hope my successors continue to influence management to make social improvements.

Read the book then do what you can to improve our planet.
