'A captivating read, painting a lively picture of the West African cocoa trade from a variety of perspectives.'
Daniel Balint Kurti, Global Witness
'I gave up eating chocolate years ago after seeing at first hand the exploitation that surrounds its production in Africa. It was about time a book like this was written.'
Stephen Chan OBE, author of The End of Certainty
'A fascinating account of the struggles of cocoa producers in West Africa, almost all of them smallholders, and what it takes to turn a crop of cocoa into a warehouse full of Ferrero Rocher.'
'Paints a disturbing and subtle picture of an industry few chocolate consumers think about.'
Sydney Morning Herald
'Arresting and provocative. The author’s interviews with labourers movingly illuminate the struggles that lie behind an icon of western indulgence.'
'Presents the tragic and shocking detail behind the world's favourite confectionery.'
'A courageous and thoughtful account of a murky industry.'
