This seems like an excellent introduction to eating (and living) the Mediterranean way.

My only complaint with the book is that the index could be more comprehensive.

Very well-balanced overview of the Mediterranean lifestyle. Great introduction, and includes some good recipes. Highly recommended as a jumping-off point for learning about the benefits and how-tos of a Mediterranean diet.
