I uploaded this to my nook app on my ipad and was welcomed with tons of problems...like amounts in the ingredients list for recipes that say simply "?" ie. pg. 577 for hot water pie crust: 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon salt, ? cup boiling water, ? cup lard, butter, or shortening... and word typo that yielded humorous results: page 534 in Pastes, (should be pastas?): Continue kneading mother 8 to 10 minutes... let me know when you can update this disaster for me.

James Beard collected recipes from all over the country, converted them to modern appliances and measurements and published them with a witty, intelligent writing style. I have used this book as a reference and educational tool for 20 years. I am buying the ebook to reread it for the wit and humor of Mr. Beard.
