Eww, saccharine is a coal tar derivative? Ick.

If you ever wanted to know what vegetable Salvador Dali hated or what midday dinner at Sigmund Freud's house was like, you'll find a little bit of information here. There's also an index by name and a selected bibliography.

I am going to remove this book from the box. It looks like a nice pick up/put down book. I am going to replace it with Disease Fighting Foods.

Thanks for sending from the ABC VBB. This looks interesting. I love food and reading about celebrities and the things they like/dislike. I have to admit this book had me at Salvador Dali. He's my favorite artist. I'm looking forward to reading this before it travels again.

My Review: This is an interesting book. Here are a few things I learned:

*Hitler was a vegetarian.

*Salvador Dali painted a picture of his wife Gala with a lamb chop on each shoulder. Reporters asked him why, Dali answered: "I liked my wife and I liked chops, and I saw no reason why I should not paint them together."

*Einstein was a late talker. One night at supper he said his first words: "The soup is too hot." His parents were relieved but curious. They asked him why he hadn't talked before. His answer: "Because up to now everything was in order."

*Elvis Presley's died at 42 years old and his last meal was 6 chocolate chip cookies and 4 scoops of ice cream (2 scoops of peach and the other 2 scoops an unknown flavor)

Reserved for a Bookbox.

It looks like I'm not going to get around to reading this. I have to put other things first, including the decluttering of my home. I hope it finds a friendly reader.
