This is a great book. Full of 'normal' recipes that anyone will enjoy; not just those who have had surgery. I have not had surgery yet but wanted to get a start on how I will need to eat and also get a good selection of cookbooks for after surgery. This book is not only full of recipes but also chapter after chapter of great information on what to expect after surgery, nutrition, food labels, stress, and more. This one is definitely a keeper.
