This book is a sham!! I didn't take notice of the writing underneath the title: "Edited by Beatriz Scaglia from high quality Wikipedia articles". I thought something was a little odd when at the end of each subject it listed "external links." It looked familiar because at the bottom of every Wiki article is the external links which I use very often for follow up information. But it has no place in a physical book in which hyperlinks don't work ( I tried and nothing happened). I wonder if it works on the Nook version. Back to the book:
1. It was not written by Beatriz Scaglia; she copied and pasted and edited it from the Wiki and then printed and sold. How is she not getting strung up for plagiarism and how did this get publishing company buy off on this. I hope this bankrupts her and the publisher.
2. There isn't a single recipe for a rub, marinade or a sauce or even tips on how to create your own, which is why I bought the book to start with. All it is, is a bunch of Wiki articles that discuss brief amounts of historical and cultural facts about different countries

3. I think I should be reimbursed threefold: Once by the editor (can't call her an author), once by the publisher for allowing this to be printed, and once for being allowed to purchase some garbage that I could have read for free on the Wiki
. BN I hope that this publication can justifiably be returned for being a steaming pile of paper.
