I know I am in a minority but I really am not impressed with Mark Bittman recipes and think this book is not very well written, organized or edited.

Very detailed, I like the options for recipes. This is a book I'd consider purchasing in hardcover. (I read this on Kindle).
One drawback.....color photos would have made it an awesome book!

Another ginormous Bittman tome. Lots of fundamental information and tons of recipes with variations to try.
