Compelling premise--Where does your morning cup, coffee and newspaper come from? Who makes them? What are the global implications of commodity trade? The best parts are on the three workers she profiles. The histories of the items and of value/money were less enthralling, I didn't respond to her writing style, however, and kept losing interest.
