This is a journey all over the world, sampling rare (to Americans) fruit, and meeting the fruit lovers who sometimes seem as exotic and rare and the fruit they collect. Their passion and sacrifice are infectious. The author is quite fond of lists, but each factoid is more entertaining than the next, and he generously provides supplemental information on his web site and on YouTube. The first half of the book revolves around history, botany and travel. The second half is more investigative. Highly entertaining.
