Salt: A World History

Salt: A World History - Scott Brick, Mark Kurlansky The history of salt is a history of humanity in crystal form, in a lot of ways. Some of it's horrifying, some of it's funny, and much of it is just silly (grey salt used to be shunned because it wasn't pure, and now it's fashionable and more expensive than white!). Exhaustively researched and unfailingly interesting. The narrator's voice was more than a little hypnotic, so it took me many, many nights to hear the whole thing.
