A fun read for bacon-lovers Dec 20 2009
By Gen of North Coast Gardening - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Bacon fans will definitely want to read all the odd stories, history, and modern uses of bacon in this fun, breezy read. I read it over the course of a few months, just picking it up here and there with a strip of bacon and a hefty glass of ice water, and it was fun to get some new ideas for how to eat bacon, and some definite ideas that I do NOT want to try (Paula Deen's bacon/ beef/ egg sandwich encased between two glazed donuts - EW!). All in all, a fun read for the bacon fans among us...

My husband loves bacon and I bought this book for him after seeing an article about it in our local newspaper. He has never laughed so hard! And it's all so true!

Needs Fat Sept. 18 2010
By Opallu - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I bought this book I was thinking of "Seduced by Bacon", a terrific book. However, this one does not read near as well nor is it attractive. It does have a lot of interesting info about bacon, good for someone seriously into it maybe. However, it did not convey that sensuous, yummy appeal of bacon that is so in right now. I bought it as a gift book also and was disappointed at myself in actually giving it to someone but I certainly couldn't deal with two of them....

Dull, boring, waste of time Oct. 13 2014
By Mr. Si Hampton - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book is boring, badly written, dull, meaningless- i would totally recommend that you dont bother with this, its a complete waste of time and money.
