Reviews

"Fascinating. A sterling example of what a fresh point of view, a clear style, a sense of humor and diligent investigation can do to reveal the inherent interest in something as taken-for-granted as your morning orange juice." --Edmund Fuller, The Wall Street Journal

"It is a delicious book, in a word, and more absorbing than many a novel." --Roderick Cook, Harper's
