This book is a little gem. For one thing, I now realize that I haven't had a clue about how to shop for olive oil. For another, this book provides almost a travelogue, as it discusses the various olive oil regions throughout the globe.

The book's purpose is laid out clearly on page 10: "This book is for everyone who wants to know how to recognize high-quality oils and where they come from. . . . It tells you which are the most important oil producing countries, it shows you how to identify oils,

This,to-date, is the best book I have ever read on the subject. It is a bible for anyone who wants to know more about this food stuff. I keep referring back to this book 3 years after reading it and it helps me clarify the murky world of extra virgin olive oil. He writes with such wit but most importantly with such honesty about the excellent, the good and the downright criminal. Amazing what the huge food companies do not want us to know about this wonderful stuff.
