Reminiscent ofBarbarians at the Gate. . . it's a fast, exciting, and even moving story about an industry that's anything but sweet." --Providence Journal "Espionage, deception, and obsessive secrecy--it sounds more like covert warfare . . . A remarkable new look at an enterprise that's much nuttier than you might have thought." --People(starred review) "A richly satisfying read . . . Brenner's fast-paced book is sprinkled with welcome detail, lively quotes, evocative descriptions of one chocolate's 'mouthfeel' vs. another's . . . Consider making a present of this appropriately flavored book." --Washington Post Book World "Delicious . . . a trenchant account of a fascinating industry--one that certainly has a generous sprinkling of nuts." --Entertainment Weekly
