From the Publisher"The Emperors of Chocolate brilliantly chronicles the near-century-old battle for the hearts and stomachs of consumers all over the world . . . Reminiscent of Barbarians at the Gate . . . it's a fast, exciting, and even moving story about an industry that's anything but sweet."
"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."
