“Every company has a dark side, and you won’t believe how dark Coca-Cola’s is. After reading this book, good luck having a Coke and smile.”–Morgan Spurlock, director of Supersize Me
“Coca-Cola wants to teach the world to sing, but in the process they’ve trashed water supplies, peddled sugar to generations of kids, and undermined workers’ rights around the world. Put down your soda, read The Coke Machine, and join the global movement to rein in unaccountable corporations.”—Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Bright-Sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America
