This is a well-researched and written biography of James Beard, considered a leading authority on food.
Beard was born in Portland, Oregon and grew up in a progressive household. His mother was sophisticated and was well known in social circles.
The Man Who Ate Too Much is John Birdsall’s first book as a solo author (he has co-written a cookbook) and weighs in at nearly 450 pages.
Beard is an icon and the author did him justice with this biography, said a review in goodreads.com
