"A diligently researched, entertainingly anecdotal and lovingly partisan history" (Independent)
"[An] informative, quirky and delightful book" (Express)
"A riveting [story] told with charm and dexterity" (Independent on Sunday)
"The award-winning author of Cod: A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World takes an equally unconventional and engaging approach to those curmudgeonly nationalists, the Basques... Each chapter...addresses a particular facet of Basque culture...while the whole is punctured with simple but mouth-watering recipes reflecting the glorious tradition of Basque cuisine. Proof - if proof were needed - that learning about history can be fun" (Kirkus Review)

I think it is very well written and very nicely documented and that it is based in facts rather than in historical points of view.
I find it very interesting for basques and also for foreigners indeed.
