A world without communities…is this a world you want? This special report on supermarkets has been built on two remarkable books: Shopped by Joanna Blythman and Not on the Label by Felicity Lawrence. We urge you to read both of them. Having read them we doubt you'll ever shop in a supermarket again. Don’t keep the truth about supermarkets to yourself – buy copies of both books for friends and family. There’s only one thing that allows supermarket bosses to sleep well at night and that’s the sound of ringing cash tills.
