I recently received this book as a Christmas gift from my fiancee'. I will definitely marry the girl now. As a scientist who is interested in cooking, this book is a joy; as a non-scientist who enjoys cooking, my fiancee' finds it fascinating and informative. Alton Brown has written here a cookbook unlike any other you've likely to have read. It's not just a collection of recipes (although there are about 90 great recipes inside); it's culinary science 101. It's literally a culinary class in your kitchen. To understand how, why, and when to cook, you gain insight into the PROCESS of cooking, not just going through the motions as is the case when you just follow recipes. Anyone who wants to know what to do when you look in the fridge and are trying to decide what to do with what you have in there for dinner needs this book. This book inspires creativity by providing its reader with a deeper understanding of the kitchen. It's a must have for any kitchen library.

I am reading this book on my nook tablet. Let me preface my comment with the fact that I love Alton Brown and I am enjoying this book. That said, some pages are regular nook text and other pages look like pdf's from the actual book ( I'm not certain of this, that's just how it looks on the nook screen). At any rate, these "pdf" style pages are too small to read and the text size cannot be changed by the usual method on the nook. I find this very annoying and I wish the entire book would be in the regular nook text... Other than this technical issue, it's a great book so far.
