“Absolutely Chocolate ($29.95, Taunton Press) from the editors of Fine Cooking is an absolute must for chocolate lovers. This new cookbook, filled with tantalizing color photographs, makes you want to dive into a bowl of chocolate and never come up for air. It’s a breathtaking, mouthwatering look into the world of chocolate. I’d like to start at Page 1, making every recipe in the book. It’s not too often I make such a strong recommendation." --Anne Braly, Chattanooga Times Free-Press
"Absolutely Chocolate, explains not just the painstaking process from bean to brownie, but offers a crash course in which baked goods taste better with cocoa powder and which benefit from chocolate. The virtues of high-quality bittersweet versus a semisweet are covered, and tips such as adding a little cocoa powder to mousse for extra flavor are provided." --New York Daily News
"This amazing collection of 125 recipes covers cookies, brownies and bars, pies, tarts, frozen desserts, candies, sauces and more. The options are endless and the photographs are so luscious, that it's easy to miss all the valuable information scattered throughout. There's information on how to choose the right chocolate for your baking needs, how to taste chocolate, how to decipher labels, getting perfect results when making chocolate chip cookies, and plenty of wisdom and techniques for perfect results." --Modesto (CA) Bee

I've tried a handful of chocolate cookbooks, and this is one of the ones I'd recommend most highly. While the "Death by Chocolate" series is great for folks who enjoy serious kitchen time and complicated recipes, Absolutely Chocolate has plenty of simpler recipes as well. The results are amazing and impressive, and there's a fantastic array of recipes to choose from. There's a limited number of photographs (there certainly isn't one for every recipe), but they're gorgeous and evocative. Recipes are clear and well-ordered, and often include extended sections of tips and instructions to help you out (such as tips for a perfect pots de creme). The cookbook is large, hard-backed, with glossy pages, so it should stay open fairly easily and stand up to much use.

One thing I really like is that most of the ingredients are readily available, not strange esoteric things like in some other cookbooks. I intend to try as many of them as I can.
