DIAMOND A Journey to the Heart of an Obsession

by | Read by Daniel Gerrol

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Abridged • © 2001

It's hard to imagine how a story about diamonds could be interesting until one starts listening to these tales of intrigue, theft, monopoly, and the shadow world of illicit trade. Diamond exploration, cutting, sorting, and pricing are only a few of the facets that make this story sparkle like its carbon crystal subject. Daniel Gerrol has a British accent; his relaxed pace is suited to a history made more fascinating in audio. One notable story is that of a tired De Beers ad executive, working late, who invented the most lucrative four-word slogan ever written: "A diamond is forever." J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
