Reviews

Tom Mueller is, in turn, chemist, explorer, scholar and bard, infusing the narrative with a sense of wonder.
In covering an industry that has its heroes and villains, author Tom Mueller does a splendid job of sorting out the players and demystifying the product.--Russ Parsons
Passionately written yet clear-headed...Mueller builds a convincing case for olive oil as one of the most miraculous and versatile substances in all of nature.--Jerry Shriver
Mueller does for his subject what Susan Orlean did for orchids.
Extra Virginity may make you reconsider the extra you're paying for 'extra.'--Cynthia Crossen
