Mark Thomas — a legendarily seditious comedian and human rights activist — is a recovering Coca-Cola addict, a self-described “middle-aged fat dad with asthma” who decides to trek around the globe investigating the stories and people Coca-Cola’s iconic advertising campaigns don’t mention: child laborers in the sugarcane fields of El Salvador, Indian workers exposed to toxic chemicals, Columbian labor union leaders in Coke bottling plants falsely accused of terrorism and jailed alongside the paramilitaries who want to kill them.

At once hilarious and disturbing, Thomas builds a very detailed and damning case against the world’s most ubiquitous drink.
