A delicious read. In addition to my enjoyment from Ms. Nygard’s unique and delightful style, which combines history, science and humor, the book changed my perception of what I had previously thought was a vice into a nutritional virtue. I’m not saying I wouldn’t have continued to eat a prodigious amount of dark chocolate, but learning in great detail and from every angle why and how dark chocolate is good for one’s health has converted my feelings of guilt and worry to pure enjoyment. Thank you, Julie Nygard!

Julie Nygard has done the world a great service. I trust Julie will one day win a Nobel Prize for this work, though whether it is for chemistry, medicine, literature, or peace remains yet to be determined.
