I carry it in my purse at all times, and, with it's grading system, it is very user friendly. One of the things that blew me away was the fact that almost 40% of all chocolate produced in the world is done using child slave labor! For that reason alone you should know who scored a "D" or "F." Not only does it list brands of foods you should avoid, but retail stores, electronics, clothing, gas, and the list goes on.
Usually I don't go on about books, or anything else I buy here, but this book is a huge exception for me. I honestly believe if we were all more conscience of the products we purchased, and where we purchased them from, this world would be a lot better place. If I could afford it I would buy a copy of this book for everyone I know.
