Reviews

As the soda wars heat up, this book is an indispensable resource.--Michael Pollan
A fascinating, thought-provoking approach to Coca-Cola history through the drink's primary ingredients--water, sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, coca leaf, caffeine--and the glass, plastic, and aluminum that contain them.--Mark Pendergrast, author of For God, Country & Coca-Cola
Citizen Coke is a brilliant analysis of Coke's empire in ecological, economic, and social terms. It allows us to see the contours of an economy based on partnerships between governments and corporations like Coca-Cola. It makes us conscious of the giant ecological footprint of the Real Thing, which impacts the real lives of real people. If you want a deeper understanding of our world today, read Citizen Coke.--Vandana Shiva, author of Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply
[Elmore offers] unaccustomed perspectives on a company whose leading product is a household name around the globe...I doubt the Coca-Cola Co. will much like it.--Marc Levinson
