Excellent book. I really recommend it for every American and Mexican wishing to learn more about the drug war taking place in Mexico.

This is an outstanding book. The author has done extensive research regarding the drug wars in Mexico, and examines it from many different angles, including the growth of quasi-religious groups involved in trafficking narcotics. The story is rich with examples from the author's personal experiences covering the topic, and the examples do an excellent job illustrating the concepts. The author covers the topic, examining it from different angles, without pushing any kind of agenda throughout the book. Understanding what is happening in Mexico is a must for anyone concerned with America's future, and this book is a must for anyone who seeks to understand what is happening in Mexico.

Excellent, coherent account of Mexico's drug nightmare that does a good job of presenting the facts neutrally (the author's a Brit) and informatively. Enjoyable and educational.

A great book.  Did I enjoy this book: I loved it! Like many Americans, I’ve visited Mexico and loved the country. Headlines of drug wars disturbed me, especially when I lived in the deep South. Many of our friends came to the U.S. from Mexico, and we’d previously enjoyed crossing the boarder without concern.  What changed? What made parts of Mexico some of the most dangerous places in our hemisphere? El Narco does a great job of explaining a very complicated international problem.  Grillo resists the temptation to sensationalize the violence and scare readers unnecessarily. He does, however, make the situation just south of the border easier to comprehend. Would I recommend it: If you enjoy nonfiction, this is a great book.
