As with everything brilliant...
Like all strokes of genius, this one won't be understood by everyone. This is an important, funny, charming, smart, and most of all honest take on American eating habits, the good and the bad and the overindulgent. Some of it really overindulgent. And gross. Shaw is willing to show and tell things that others keep secret, like donuts at 2 in the morning (I knew I wasn't the only one.) It's like anthropology on the fly. Anyone willing to look beyond the food in the pictures will see the story of a life without words. Anyone who's interested in food or people will be into this book. It makes you think.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Made My Mouth Water!
A wonderful collection of what one person consumes in a year! Whoa!?!? Who would have ever thought, that someone can eat so much variety in a year! EVERYTHING I ATE, is one of those books you can't put down because you seem to share in Tuckers year long quest & adventure and that familiar question 'so what's for dinner?' The book I feel, also helps to inspire one to go out and try new foods, tastes, and other international regions or area cucisines & recipes. It encourages to explore the various dining locales in what ever town you may call home. Or to pick up that exotic cook book and treat you and a pal's taste buds too something new and vibrant. But also, you can see that Tucker shares each of his dining out experiences with a great circle of friends. And what better way to enjoy the grub before you, than with good friends and good conversation. Once again, i feel that Tuckers book inspired me to invite more friends out to accompany me to a great Sunday brunch. The book is delight for food lovers and makes a great stocking stuffer.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
