The book is lively and readable, but too many of the recipes are for curing 10 pounds of meat -- I wish he'd included smaller-quantity versions of some of them.
This is NOT the definitive book for beginning jerky-makers, but it's probably a good buy for an experienced jerky-maker to add to his/her library.
For a beginner this book probably isn't going to be quite what you are looking for. There is some good info in here, and some recipes that sound great, so if you have some experience with jerky I think it would be worth checking out.
Another review notes that the author deviates from standard guidelines when it comes to cooking temperatures, and that's true. However, most recipes call for temperatures of 140 degrees, which is just slightly below the minimum temperature of 145 recommended by the FDA. When you consider that jerky spends 8-10 hours in the oven, I don't think food safety is an issue at these temperatures for anything other than pork, which the author recommends against.
Recipes that call for lower temperatures are left to the reader's discretion, but clearly marked as such.
