I'll admit I had modest (if largely undefined) expectations when I first ordered this book -- I figured I'd learn some things about cranberries. And while the book certainly presents plenty of interesting trivia, it offers so much more.

Through the context of the cranberry industry, the book alludes to something much larger: the history of America itself. It's one thing to learn about agriculture, industrialisation, unionisation, monopolies, and policy as individual topics, as they were presented in school -- but it's something else to see the interplay between these forces, how one begets another, and how the balance of power shifts over time. The book synthesises all of these concepts in a coherent manner and remains remarkably unbiased while doing so.

I found the writing style enjoyable; there were plenty of puns and you could tell the authors were passionate and well versed regarding their subject. All the same, they were refreshingly (and at times brutally) frank and honest when it came to heavier matters (ironically, no sugar coating to be found here!).

My only 'complaint' is that I would've liked if a bit more was said on the health and botanical properties of the cranberry, which were touched upon only briefly... but to be fair, this is touted as a history book. Overall, I'd highly recommend the book to anyone curious about not just cranberries, but how industry and regulation has evolved to its present state.

I picked up this book as a Christmas present for my parents, as they had just moved to a house that is surrounded by cranberry bogs. It was a great way for my family to learn about the history of the cranberry industry and get into the culture.

The book is full of great info and was very well written, a great read for anyone looking to get into the cranberry culture.

Keep on eating, Jake.

And keep on writing!
