"Eating the Flowers of Paradise is an account of extraordinary journeyings in a corner of the earth which remarkably enough has eluded investigation by explorers until this time. It abounds with fascinating and excting fresh material presented in a style comparable to the accepted classics of travel in Arabia and the Middle East."
-- Norman Lewis

"If you never chew a leaf in your life, this rollicking tale of high adventure should give you a hint of how it feels."
-- Independent on Sunday (London)

"Rushby is a fearless and sociable traveller. . . . There are many amusing episodes and good jokes in this engaging book."
-- The Tablet (United Kingdom)

"Pure joy from beginning to end."
-- Wanderlust (United Kingdom)
