This is an informative book about the olive oil trade. The scams that go on in oil labeling, bottling, and sales will likely shock most readers. Unless you are already well informed about this, the book will give you much needed practical information that will help you make informed decisions about what oil to buy, how to use it, and how not to waste your money.

No. I was hoping for essentially a brief history. It is that but the content and tone are geared for children. The publisher notes that the author was inspired by her children's questions but it should note that the book was written to not only address those questions but to explicitly address them for children. The book was originally written in 1905 and it is interesting to hear for how very differently ideas and concepts were presented, with a good deal of patriotism spiced with pride that is lacking in much of today's works. However, it does get a bit tedious after a while. As an historical oddment, for nostalgia, or for children, this book is all right, but otherwise, better to give it a miss.
