    Tasty, lethal, hallucinogenic, and medicinal - fruits have led nations into wars, fueled dictatorships, and even lured us into new worlds. Adam Leith Gollner weaves business, science, and travel into a riveting narrative about one of the earth's most desired foods.

    I bought this book with the idea it would put me to sleep, instead I found a wonderful adventure that I would have loved to gone on. The author touched a cord with me in the quirky quest of fruit hunting.
    But Gollner or his editor should do some pruning on his next book. I almost didn't make it through the long opening section.
    Thank you for the armchair trip into a very interesting world.
