    Great book and great food!

    I read this book in 1 day! Not only do you learn the last meals of legendary people in history, but you also get the recipe for the meals! Great addition to any book club gathering!

    Not recommended

    Being a chef and history enthusiast, I looked forward to this book but was completely underwhelmedd by its lack of historical depth and boring recipes. Written like an 8th grade history textbook, simple historical facts and no real insight to the food of these figures days...it was uninspired and lacking any discernible depth. Other Last Supper/Final Meals books are much more robust and enlightening. Blah.
