    An eye opener.This book was informative, but a slow read Some chapters were fascinating and grabbed me from the start, some were overly political and lost me completely I ve been picking this up and putting it down again for several months so it s quite a relief to reach the end On the other hand, I have full respect for the work of Dean Cycon, founder of Dean s Beans He has travelled to the source of his supplies and treats his farmers with compassion and dignity.The chapters each...
