Mark Pendergrast's history is a microcosm of American enterprise. Invented as a patent medicine with a cocaine kick, Coca-Cola is today 99 per-cent sugar water, the world's most distributed product, available in over 185 countries, more than the membership of the United Nations. All a far cry from the chance invention of Dr. John Smith Pemberton, a morphine addict in Atlanta, Georgia, just over a century ago.

Mark Pendergrast was born in Atlanta and is a graduate of Harvard University. A business journalist, he has published articles and reviews in a number of magazines and newspapers, including the New York Times, the Sunday Times (London), and Financial Analyst.

From The Washington Post:

"An encyclopedic history of Coke and its subculture. [Pendergrast] has used Coca-Cola as a metaphor for the growth of modern capitalism itself. His research and storytelling skills are prodigious."
