A matter of taste

I absolutely loved this book. The first half was filled with names I knew and stories about them I didn't. I'm not American so Eleanor Roosevelt was just a President's wife until this.
The second half of the book I was absolutely entranced by. There is nothing quite like listening to an enthusiast talk on their favourite subject. I find it utterly fascinating. If you had told me that I would have stayed sitting in the car listening to the end of a chapter on a guy who makes hand tools for woodwork I would have laughed in your face but somehow the genuine passion and respect that he has for the chosen subjects absolutely hooked me.
I have recommended this book to just about everyone I have spoken to since I finished it. I recommend it to you too.
