Ambergris is a by-product of sperm whales, used for centuries as a perfume, medicine and aphrodisiac. It's an amazing source of wealth -- ambergris trades for US$20 a gram. As the author discovers more about ambergris' origins, its uses present day and historic, the outrageous lengths people have gone to find it and the intriguing efforts people go to in order to keep what they know about ambergris a secret, the more his infectious obsession grows. -Also available online
