The Taste of Many Mountains by Bruce Wydick

First off let me say I am utterly shocked that there are so many negative reviews of this book, I have to say that it really is one of the best books I have read in quite some time with so much substance and depth to it. I really feel like this book was like college class in economics that was fictionalized and written so the average person with very little background in economics can understand.
I loved how this book explored and explained the concept of fair trade and the coffee industry, showing where the money tends to go and how fair trade isn't really favorable to the growers.
I loved getting a glimpse into living conditions in South America and the turmoil that has been a part of their history. The flashbacks between the past and present added another fascinating layer to this already fascinating book.
I just loved how this book had so much more substance to it and really stayed with you long after you finish it.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
