Supremely insightful. I came away from reading this with a much deeper appreciation for something so deceptively simple, yet earth shattering in impact on how my day to day life is lived. Spooky.

I bought the book for work purposes, to learn more about supply chains and getting products to market. The book is well researched and well written, and to my surprises found it an interesting read. Better than the 'dry read' I was expecting

While the history of the container is clearly and interestingly presented, the author goes into almost too many specifics in various chapters. This book could have been more interesting if presented in less than 150 pages, if enough unnecessary specifics were not included. There is almost too much time spent on the plight of longshoremen. It's easy to get bored while reading through a chapter in this book.

I am a little too young to recall the old way of shipping goods by breakbulk, so was amazed to read the book and discover the painstaking process of loading and unloading ships, boxcars and trucks. The efforts unions went to to remain inefficient!?! It seems so obvious now that it was a huge was of human capital, but amazingly it took a lot of effort to get containers to take off. This book is mostly a business success story, but it also has elements of history and economics.
