An Edible History of Humanity - Tom Standage I won this book through the first reads program. The book is divided into six parts containing two chapters each. At only 242 pages I expected to read it quickly, but it rarely kept my interest. I'm not sure I would have finished it if I had not won the book from here. It reads like a text book, but without the depth of a text book.I. The Edible Foundations of CivilizationII. Food and Social StructureIII. Global Highways of FoodIV.
