Much Better Than the Title Would Indicate
Reviewed in the United States on April 25, 2018
Unfortunate title will prevent many people from purchasing and reading this book. The book provides excellent background information to explain why the war on drugs seems to get no where despite the billions of dollars thrown at it. I appreciated the historical information about others who have explored this area and its people and how drugs have changed it, and also the honest questioning by the author about why he was doing this journey at all (like why do people go to North Korea?). I would like to recommend it to friends, but again, I know the title would not appeal to them. Hope you will rethink the place this book could have in the discussion about the US relationship with Mexico and the complications of the drug industry, and rebrand it.
