Business writing with a kick

Early on Christmas morning, I finished reading The Coffee Book: Anatomy of an Indusry from Crop to the Last Drop from New Press. The two authors—Nina Luttinger and Gregory Dicum, fellow San Franciscans—are superb storytellers. Every chapter is a joy to read, with insightful and lucid descriptions of the history of third places, the effects of globalization on the developing world, and the promise and potential snarls of the sustainable food movement.
