"Poppy works a kind of magic. It is not a news report or a compilation. Rather, the authors tell a complex story, and their insight, gained from decades of traveling opium’s routes, enables us to glimpse the poppy economy and its causes in surprising detail. Immerse yourself in this book and you will emerge believing the world to be a very different place than it was before Robert Knoth and Antoinette de Jong led you on Poppy: Trails of Afghan Heroin." (rated 9.5)

"Poppy: Trails of Afghan heroin is an epic tale ... the writing is engrossing and addictive ... with its very smart presentation and the quality of the photography and the writing, this book is setting a new benchmark ... highly recommended."
