John Keahey takes readers into a part of Tuscany beyond the usual tourist destinations. The often overlooked western portion of Tuscany is rich with history, cuisine, and scenery begging to be explored, and Keahey encourages travelers to abandon itineraries and let the grooves in the road and the curves of the coast guide your journey instead. From coastal towns to vineyards farther inland to the Tuscan archipelago, Keahey reminds us that each village, city, and island has its own unique story to tell.

Maybe the worst book on Tuscany I ever started to read. (Full disclosure: I hold a PhD on a Tuscan subject, lived over a year there and speak native-level Italian).
The author does not even speak Italian, and misses most everything that any hidden Tuscany lover would put up high in the list, just giving a list of his haphazard wanderings, where he choses minor points over outstanding lesser known ones. One example: he mentions Calci, where he was "chewing on soft local bread I picked up in a tiny market... along with slices of local salami..." etc., etc., but ignores the wonderful former Carthusian monastery, now the Museum of Natural History and of the Territory of the University of Pisa located... in Calci.

Overall a good read, written like a novel and travel guidebook combined. Can appreciate his experiences of getting to know the "locals".
