What the Critics Say

"The most important book of the year.... Here it is, laid bare: cartel as corporation, corporation as cartel; cocaine as pure capitalism.... Saviano realises the brutal truth: that to understand narco-traffic is to understand the modern world...it is revolutionary." (Ed Vulliamy, Observer)
"A dense, dazzling, dizzying narrative about the terrifying violence of the cocaine trade, but also the vast, unassailable reach of it." (Rose George, Independent)
"A tremendously gripping work of reportage." (Ian Thomson, Evening Standard)
"Italy's bravest investigative writer...must-read nonfiction." (GQ)
"Impassioned, remarkable." (Misha Glenny, Financial Times)
"After reading Saviano, it becomes impossible to see Italy, and the global market, in the same way again." (The New York Times)

Typical Drugs Came From Nowhere Nonsense

This author writes beautifully. The problem is his memory for the drug war keeps activities safely away from the US and the UK. I suppose you can never give an honest account of the drug war and why it exists these days. Still, for anyone who knows who caused the entire decades-long war and who started the practice of state-sponsored subjugation with opium, you can only wince and be appalled that the worst offender of the conflict, America, gets zero condemnation.

Fascinating read into a hidden business world.

This book is a fascinating look inside a business that breeds corruption and horror in many societies from the poor producers to the victims in the production cycle. Not a recommended read for anybody fighting addictions and Thier own demons.
