Chocolate, long considered the elixir of the gods, is just about everyone's drug of choice. The preferred gift of Valentine's Day, it triggers the same brain responses as falling in love. And it's better for you than red wine. In this scintillating narrative, Mort Rosenblum delves into the mysteries of cacao: its history, its legends and lore, the processes that make chocolate, and, along the way, the dark side of the chocolate trade.

Mediocre writing and organization. Superficial reporting, mostly promotional hyperbole. Nothing new here.

I love chocolate, the darker, the richer the better but I almost gave it up after I read this book.
I wondered if the human suffering perpetrated upon small cocoa farmers by the multinational buyers and producers would make it impossible for me to eat it again.
Now I only buy fair trade.
