"...informative and surprising...this unflinching survey of global eating habits urges [readers] to challenge their cultural assumptions and palates." - Publishers Weekly
"Only someone as smart, fun and adventurous as Andrew Zimmern could have dreamed up and researched such an entertaining, engaging book that covers everything edible from the simply distasteful to the outrageously creepy. It's got an eeeeeew factor that will keep kids entertained, and a wealth of facts that will keep them informed." - Dana Cowin, Editor In Chief of Food & Wine
"Along with the enlightenment that comes with realizing not everyone eats like us, adults will be alternately fascinated and horrified by his latest. But children will be mesmerized--and I'm quite sure-- intrigued. This will be Andrew's lasting legacy, planting the notion in minds young and old that ‘that might not be too bad. I think I'll try that!’" - Anthony Bourdain
"If this book had a mantra, it would be “Try it; you might like it,” which is an apropos message for readers young and old." -- Booklist
