How, why and when the key deals that affect all our lives happened.
What if the way we understand our world is wrong? What if it isn't politicians and events that shape our lives, but secret deals made by people you've never heard of?
This book tells the story of twelve secret deals that changed the world, and revolutionized everything we do, including money, the food we eat, what we buy, and the drugs we take to stay well. These deals never made the news: they were made high up in boardrooms, on golf courses, and in luxury cars: each sealed by a handshake that would change the world. This is the story of those twelve handshakes.
If you like keeping abreast of current affairs, reportage journalism, or simply enjoy philosophical debate and don't mind being spooked by what you didn't know, then this book is worthy of your time. It will entertain, inform and open your eyes. - Cream Magazine
