This book is about so much more than salt. A friend asked me what I was listening oo while listening to this one and they thought it sounded like an absurd thing to read about. I'm inclined to believe that many people might turn away from this book based on that fact, but I found it to be chalked full of so many interesting facts from some of the earliest history.

I found all the information presented in the book a little overwhelming at times and I do believe I would have given it 5 stars had I read it more slowly and allowed the information to settle between reads. I will be sure to read it at a later date for that reason.

This is a thoroughly entertaining read! I recommend it to anyone who likes cooking, history or cataloging interesting little facts to spew at later dates. There is so much good party chit-chat tied up in this one.
