Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more interesting than you might think from its title, 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The heading (and title of the book) says it all really – the cod isn't just a piece of fish lying on a plate next to chips and mushy peas after all. Its story is the history of the North Atlantic as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read the Basque story and try out their recipes - all in one book, 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The basques have a fascinating history - I thought I knew that before reading the book - but Mark Kurlansky adds to that with many links to other country's history such as Spain and France. And he adds a lot of extra bits such as Basque recipes.

Fascinating memory of something I read about at school 50 years ago. I liked the nteresting extra bits that were included as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars just like today! Scary!, 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating account of dodgy practice in the financial and political world of the 18th century. It is frighteningly similar to the shenanigans we've seen in recent years.
