However, don't be too offput by my comments. 'The true history of chocolate' IS a very good book and the fact that you're reading this review must mean that it's a topic of great interest to you. After all, there aren't that many books that deal with this topic in such interesting detail.
For my taste, though, the style was a little too academic (with constant cross referencing and dealing with individual cultures in different chapters, rather than blending themes).
I am pleased to have read it, but was left feeling a little wanting at the end.
