Salt is the only rock that animals, including humans, not only eat, but require to stay alive. Scott Brick shakes the sodium crystals of Kurlansky’s book, giving a salacious twist to the role of a mineral in the scientific, economic, political, religious, and culinary life of humankind. This geological product has served as a preservative, a currency, and a source of legend and superstition. Brick’s mouth seems to savor the words as he tells of the ideas and events in the history of this kitchen condiment. Even in our blood-pressure-conscious era, when salt is often shunned, this audiobook is a fascinating tonic. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
