Beautiful writing! His narrative structure does take a bit of focus to follow, but I love it. It feels like the way people actually tell stories, when they're overflowing with enthusiasm and need to give you five million side notes of every funny tangentially related story.

While this was an interesting book it was a little too dry for me to really enjoy. I thought it was neat that he made salt from sea water. If I still lived near the ocean, I would definitely try it. The funniest part was his attempt at making hot dogs. If the whole book had been more like that section I would have rated it higher.
