Stage WestMike Daisey had long been known in reviewers' circles for channeling his obsessions into electric, fiery monologues. An Apple junkie by his own admission, Daisey traveled to Foxconn, the factory in Shenzhen, China where most of the world's electronic gadgets are produced. Barred from entering, he stood outside and waited to speak to any employees he could. His first-person retelling foreshadowed a wave of stories of worker suicides, pre-teen employees, and draconian workdays that have tainted the reputation of Foxconn and its high-profile tech clients -- Apple most of all -- in recent months.
A harrowing tale of pride, beauty, lust, and industrial design, Daisey illuminates how the former CEO of Apple and his obsessions have shaped our lives, while following the trail all the way to China to investigate the factories where millions toil to make iPhones and iPods. Daisey's dangerous journey shines a light on our love affair with our devices and the human cost of creating them.
