I'm Lovin' It: A Memoir is an exploration of the impact of branding on personal experiences. The narrative is made up of 4 interwoven voices: McDonald factoids, personal stories, supporting commentary, and design elements. Together, they open a discussion on social class, perception, and corporate control. This book is not a commentary on McDonalds or their practices, but rather a showcase of untold stories that ask readers to think twice bout making assumptions. There is always more than one truth.
