I bought this as a joke for a man obsessed with meat who talks incessantly about the 50 shades phenomenon. The book is cute and has lots of recipes. I like the content. My issue is in the price. I was disappointed when I opened up a book thinner than my Good Housekeeping magazine. My daughter has thicker children's books. It is about a quarter inch thick (or less) with a flimsy paper cover. I guess I was expecting something sturdier for $25. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the book itself. The problem is with the price. I could see this book selling at $7.99, MAYBE $15 because of the name play and all the 50 shades propaganda it's riding off of. But $25...no way. Make sure you really want this book if you intend to buy it, because it is over priced. (which is a shame because it is a cute idea.)

I bought this for my stepmother for Christmas, thinking she'd get a good laugh out of it as well as some great recipes.

I could not have been more disappointed. For $20, I got what amounted to a kid's book sized cookbook, and the recipes themselves were lacking a lot of detail as to what went into the preparation of the particular dishes.

I mean, really? You need an entire page to tell me that to make Bacon Peanut Butter you blend cooked bacon and peanut butter together? Seriously? I think I could have figured that one out on my own, Sherlock. Thanks but no thanks.

It's the first time I've returned anything to Amazon in the past five years. I sent it back and got her the Game of Thrones cookbook instead.

I bought what I thought was a book as a wedding gift for a coworker and was extremely embarrassed when this little pamphlet arrived. The price, description, and photo led me to believe this was a book. This product is worth $5.00 or less, not $25.00. The only real Fifty Shades connection is a table of contents that lists appetizers as foreplay. I was very disappointed, to say the least.

Very disappointing compared to 50 shades of Chicken which was funny and excellent.

This is a few one page recipes without the humour, or the page count or the photos.

I say don't buy it! Buy 50 Shades of Chicken.

Do not buy this- I would award zero stars if possible! Low budget book with basic recipes and nothing to do with Fifty Shades Of Grey at all. No raunchy play on words like other recipe books of similar titles. The pictures and wording of these recipes is very basic and the entire book looks as though it was made from the authors home study. Waste of time and money, sorry!

Unfortunately, it's not as fat as the bacon you're cooking.
I would never have known how to make bacon bits or a BLT.

Less than I expected for the price, but will still be a good gag Christmas gift for the person I bought it for.

Not only is this a wonderful cookbook about my love bacon, it was also a hilarious read. I recommend this to all foodies out there. I can't wait to try all the recipes. The husband is sold on bacon ice cream.

The book was very small. For the price I figured there would be more to read. It took me five minutes to read.
