of time reading news articles outlining the shocking crimes committed by the cartels, but I can t say I ever had much of an understanding of the financial side of the illegal drug trade Sure, I knew that it is a very profitable and dangerous business I also understood basic principles of supply and demand I just never went beyond skimming the surface.The book is provides the account of a

manufacture and sale of illicit drugs so lucrative Political, cultural and geographic considerations are also touched upon, in order to provide acomprehensive view.While I found this book to be very interesting, I have to admit that I often found myself bored This probably has farto do with my reading tastes, which strongly favor entertainment over enlightenment, than it does with the quality of

and engaging Tabloid newspapers need not fear this book does not advocate the taking of illegal drugs or put the drug cartels on a pedestal in any way As a business worth conservatively over USD300 billion a year, clearly those running it know what they are doing No matter about the law, you just cannot run something of this scale or size without having finely tuned structures in place If anything, the operation could arguably be even larger and certainlyefficiently were it legal.You can look at the book in two distinct ways, either learningabout the global drugs trade and seeing how it uses big business techniques to good effect, or you can use the examples given as a way to understanding business concepts that are often swaddled in theory and can be difficult to understand It serves both well, packaged in an easy to read, informative form.The author shows how business practices such as mergers and acquisitions, competition and collusion, social responsibility, media relations, human resources, franchising and strong management oversight are used within the drugs business You might not look at it in the same light ever again.You do not need to be interested in business to get a lot out of this book It is great for a general reader and eminently suitable for anyone with an interest in business or the global drugs industry Once you pick it up, it can be hard to put down though
