The author is an obvious liberal and takes every opportunity he can to bash conservatives and Republicans. It would have been better to leave his bias at home.
I am not sure.
The reader is good and keeps a good pace.
The history is interesting, if one can believe all of it - but it is written in a very one-sided way. Real history is just not one-sided.
I have been reading this book because I have a lot of Julia Child cookbooks and I have learned a lot from them. However, I am very disappointed that this book is so political. I never realized what a Liberal Julia Child was and the book would have been better if it had kept her political views out and that it had stuck to cooking. After what I have learned about Julia, I no longer view her so highly. She was a great cook but a dumbbell in other respects.
