I liked the information in this book a lot, but struggled to get through it. It was really disjointed. I was listening to the audiobook, and sometimes I would check to make sure it was playing correctly because he switched topics so completely so quickly. It kind of didn't make sense. It was also a little frustrating to be told that most olive oil is bad and that some big companies are particularly guilty of selling bad/adulterated oil, but not be given any names - good or bad. There were no recommendations for good brands to buy (though there were a couple of websites listed in the back of the book). In any case, I probably know more about olive oil now than 90% of people I know, and I'm happy about it. I am looking forward to seeking out and trying some really good oil.
