Should I purchase this if I already own the 6-book series?

I purchased Modernist Cuisine last Christmas for my boyfriend, and apart from looking at photos and attending when he wishes to show me something, I have not explored the books on my own. Would this be something he would be interested in as an add on or should I look elsewhere for gifts since he already has the original books?

I read an article in Wine Spectator this week that indicates this is a boil down of the big Tomb, to what can reasonably be done at home. I don't own either, but this sounds like a repeat.

This, and Modernist Cuisine, is for people with the time, money, and interest in making better tasting food. The arsenal of requisite equipment includes combination ovens, sous vide equipment, induction cooktops, pressure cookers, blow torches, etc., but Mr. Myhrvold has spent untold hours researching and perfecting methods to bring out the best in high quality ingredients. If you love to cook and want to use technology to cook better, these books will show you the way.
