I am still giggling about some of the facts brought out!! The book contains something for everyone. I really enjoyed the book" Suzie Baldwin, Poultry Dealer, Surrey.


"I really enjoyed this book. As a dietitian and lecturer in nutrition and dietetics, I was impressed with the scientific content and exploration of the nutritional benefits of eggs. I would recommend this book to my students. On the other hand, it would be equally enjoyable to the general reader as no in-depth knowledge is needed to understand it as any scientific concept are very clearly explained. The factual content is well interspersed with amusing and curious facts about every possible aspect of eggs, making for an enjoyable read".  Dr. Jennie Jackson, Department of Life Sciences, Glasgow Caledonian University.

"This little book could well be subtitled "Everything you ever wanted to know about eggs, but did not know whom to ask". The authors are well qualified to answer questions having spent the greatest part of their careers as scientists and teachers involved with eggs. The book contains throughout cartoons, illustrations, interesting data and interesting factoids concerning eggs. For an egg aficionado like me, it makes fun reading. We can wish that doctors, dietitians, teachers and other pundints who influence people¢s decisions about food would read it. Egg farmers and others in the industry will enjoy it and surely learn a great deal more from the wide range of information presented".  Dr. Peter Hunton, Former Chairman, Ontario Egg Board, Former President of the World's Poultry Science Association, Canada
