    Very Good - and it IS a different book than Vol 1.

    I have both the 40th Anneversary Edition of Vol 1, and this book, Vol 2, which is different than Vol 1 despite the claims by other reviewers. This is not a re-print. It is an extension of Vol 1 in that it consists of material removed during editing because the original manuscript was way too extensive to be included in one volume. Same great quality as the Vol 1, but again, not redundant.

    GREAT ADDITION TO VOLUME 1

    This is one of the best additions to any cookbook in history. Contrary to other reviewers this is the second volume. It is however an extension of volume one 'which might have been the confusion'. I recommend this cookbook to any novice or expert 'if you are the latter I am sure you have this cookbook already'. GREAT BUY FOR ANY COOK'S KITCHEN

    A definite classic!

    I was never really a fan of Julia Child when she was on TV but this book is marvelous. She definitely knew her way around the kitchen. Mastering the Art of French Cooking Vol. 2 is one of my favorite cookbooks and I have hundreds from all over the world. French cooking has always been a little intimidating to me; but, this book makes it seem so easy. It is just a matter of carefully following directions. What a delightful book! I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a unique cookbook for themselves or a most valued gift for any inspiring cook.

    A GREAT BOOK BUT NOT FOR BEGINNERS

    I cook and enjoy cookbooks. Mastering the Art of French Cooking are great books. Both volumes are really wonderful books, and even if I think they would make beginners feel a bit uneasy I absolutely adore these books. They are really great!

    Great Gift

    I gave this to my son and his wife at Christmas. He had volume one and he wanted to complete the set. They enjoy cooking, so they do use this cookbook and have fun making the recipes.

    Wrong book, wrong title!!!

    This is not Volume Two. This is a 40th anniversary reprint of Volume One.
