This fascinating book depicts what families in different parts of the world eat in the course of a week. I was quite intrigued at how some cultures eat pretty much the same thing for breakfast as the other times of day - not some specialized "breakfast foods" as in the US. In addition to the photos, there are essays for each family, plus facts & figures detailing the countries' financial & food-related statistics; every food item is categorized including quantity and price, and the cost/value is provided in the native currency as well as dollars. This will stick with you long after you read it.
