    1. An utterly fascinating book on chocolate written by one of the foremost authors on ethnopharmacology. Examines what we all too easily dismiss as a simple snack food from the perspectives of its fascinating political history, its properties as a medicinal and psychoactive drug, and its values as a "superfood" you'll never see chocolate the same way again, nor have any doubts that the active chemical in chocolate rightly deserves a name meaning "food of the gods."
