    Break out the TV dinners! From the author who gave us Cod, Salt, and other informative bestsellers, the first biography of Clarence Birdseye, the eccentric genius inventor whose fast-freezing process revolutionized the food industry and American agriculture.

    David says: "Birdseye - one step too far for Kurlansky"
    "For the Curious Man a story about a Curious Man"

    Any additional comments?

    The part of the title that says “adventures of a curious man” caught my attention. Without knowing anything more about the “Birdseye” name than I see it on frozen vegetable boxes, I figured that this book would either be a total sleeper or a complete bore and I would move on after 50 pages. The former proved to be true. If you are curious type of person yourself, or have a yearn for adventure, you will enjoy this book. Mr. Birdseye led a life of unbelievable adventure. While in the process of satisfying his curiosity, it led him to invent and produce countless products, start businesses, and become quite a highly respected and renowned person in numerous fields around the world during his lifetime. In the process of telling the story you’ll hear about many of the other inventors from that great time when America was still young and anything was possible. I am quite glad a read, or, uh “heard” the book.
