I have the enhanced version with video and this is a great cookbook so far. I was looking at the reviews to see if anyone knew how to easily find the pages that have videos but instead found lots of complaints and thought I'd help with those. A. The sample book that cannot be removed from your nook is a glitch and from what I've read, will be addressed in the next software update. For now, I think you can hide it on a separate bookshelf or just enjoy it for what it is -- you might actually want to make those chocolate curls one day. B. If you actually purchased the cookbook and did not get the enhanced version with video, contact BN. They will refund your nook purchase and you can repurchase the correct version. I know because this happened to me. The enhanced version has the videos and internet links and costs $4 more. I went online and contacted them via the nook chat and the problem was easily corrected. Beware: Even though the sample has video, if you purchase from the sample, it links you to the cheaper version which is not enhanced (again, that's what happened to me). You must be sure to purchase the enhanced version if that's what you want.

I dont understand all the negative reviews. This cookbook is great! There are several short videos. Each one is about a minute and a half. Examples: how to peel shrimp, how to poach an egg. Yes this cookbook is expensive, but it has tons of great recipes. The videos are helpful. I love cookbooks, and it is fun to be able watch videos with tips, tricks, and how to. It also has red text throughout that you can click on to jump to related sections. I think this very handy. If you're looking for a really well rounded cookbook, this is it! I would like to see more videos or a lower price, then i would give it five stars.

Although this is a great book (I have the actual physical book in my home) do not buy this one. Yes, it does have very great tips and helpful hints, it shouldn't be $20! That is way too much. I bought the actual book at a local bookstore for just $10!

It's a wonderful cookbook and not hard to navigate at all. A really good all around reference. The videos are also very helpful!! I noticed that most complaints are coming from people talking about the sample. A sample is meant to be only a "slice" of the pie.......and that slice was free........ Not to mention, all this coming from people who could not spell nor put a sentence together correctly. Hmmmm.......think about it....

Obviously this book has poor reviews because of the idiots writing them. This sample comes with the nook color along with others to see if you are interested in purchasing it. So for the people writing one star reviews because you are confused, take a look at your library before you instantly make false accusations. So stop writing questions instead of reviews because you are stupid. This book seems pretty great with delicious recipes and helpful videos. If you like to cook, i recomend you buy this book.

This was one of the first books that I got when I got my nook several months ago and the reason I got it was that it was featured in one of the "how to" videos on the site. After paying for what I thought was a book with recipe videos in it, I was disappointed to find out that not only did my version lack video, but that up until version 1.2 was released, the nook was not capable of playing an embedded video in an ebook as shown in their tutorial videos. I'm fine with paying an extra few dollars for the difference between the "enhanced" version and my "basic" one, (though I think B&N should have made it clear that the first version did not include video at all), but I am NOT going to shell out an extra $20+ for something that I thought I was getting the first time. It looks like I have about 4 other titles in my library that are now available in an enhanced version too. I get that B&N wants to make money off of me, but I don't think that pricing ebooks in this way is going to help build or keep customers around the nook platform when there are clearly other options out there, and after trying to get customer service to see things from my point of view it appears that is an exercise in futility.

Those of us with Color Nooks are forced to endure the presence of a 6 page sample of this ebook - it cannot be deleted without going into the root or similar action. Seems this forced method of advertising is a very poor sample of the publisher and/or the bookstore ethics-I paid a small fortune for my NOOK and should not be forced to have a sample I didn't authorize auto downloaded. The sample isn't something that I would cook, and the 'ehanced' ebook is definitely not worth the price.

I found that this cook book was to cumbersome to use effectively and you also can't down load it to your PC! All my other books can be on my computer, but not the cook book. What gives. It would definately make it easier to use and more readible.
