The 7 Wonders of Olive Oil is one of the best books I ve read! The authors do a wonderful job on educating the reader on the history, biochemical characteristics, and production of olive oil. The chapter on cancer prevention was fascinating to me as a practicing oncologist. Most important, this book is evidence-based, well referenced, and scientifically sound. Belongs in everyone s library.
Mark A. Marinella, MD, FACP Board Certified, Medical Oncology/Internal Medicine
Academic, scientific, and enthusiastic, this book makes strong arguments for incorporating olive oil into your daily life.
An excellent, reader-friendly guide, The 7 Wonders of Olive Oil is highly recommended.

The health benefits of olive oil is told lucidly, without medical hoopla or complicated exposition. Stronger bones; cancer prevention; higher brain function; natural anti-inflammatory properties; skin rejuvenation; cardiovascular benefits; and reduction of the risk of diabetes. There are short sections on: the roots of olive oil in Mediterranean history; understanding fats; and the production of olive oil from olives. A bonus is the section on understanding the label on buying Extra Virgin olive oil. Another section deals with different categories of olive oil and yet another offers readers some suggestions on the use of olive oil in the kitchen.
There is a quiz on olive oil. And for those hungering for more, there is a comprehensive glossary of terms as used by the experts on olive oil production and analytics. An extensive reference section can direct the new olive oil aficionado to the authors' trove of olive's fountain of knowledge.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and if you are interested in any aspect of olive and olive oil - history, production, use, health benefits - you will too.
