The comprehensive EGG...

This is probably the most comprehensive, objective look at the egg and all that it entails. From history, scientific to food, to anedotal, it is absolutely comprehensive information on the egg. 
You'll never looks at an egg the same way again.

Yes.  I am telling you to read a book about eggs.

This is not a cookbook.  Instead, it’s a funny, fascinating and occasionally snarky book about one of the world’s most important foods.

The author brings us history, mythology and a little political commentary.   We also have death, war and the wholesale destruction of species – all because of…eggs.  It’s absolutely amazing.  

(I was going to say this book is ‘eggs-alent’ but you might have killed me.  Oops, I said it.)

As I was reading the book, I started reading portions aloud to whoever was around me – sorry to my kid and coworkers.  Every time, people were interested, engaged, and then completely bemused that I was reading a book about eggs.

I loved this.

Seriously…get the Egg book.
