Alissa Hamilton unravels the disconcerting and eye-opening history of the concept and production of modern orange juice and relays it in an informal and down-to-earth writing style that causes the reader to giggle or gasp at the antics of the orange juice producing companies or the decisions (or lack there of) of the FDA.
