2.0 out of 5 stars Torture porn plus heartwarming human interest story, June 13, 2012
The story of a boy who suffered a terrible injury, yet came back and made a kind of life for himself in spite of his handicap . . . unfortunately crammed in with torture porn straight from the killers' own lips, combined with obvious manipulation of the young man by the killers. Tony is brave and his family has stood by him through tragedy, and both are worthy of admiration. However, writing to serial killers and encouraging them to tell their stories is not a "wonderful" or "inspiring" hobby. It's just . . . strange. The killers brag and play him for all the attention they can get. The image of the family sitting around the table reading out loud a letter describing how one killer attacked and killed his victims is nauseating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Original recipes, but measurements are way off, November 2, 2011
Many fresh and exciting recipes with interesting ingredients. Some hits, a few misses, but always unusual. However, the measurements in many recipes are way off. Did anyone test them before the book was published? For example, the Tofu with Black Pepper called for FIVE tablespoons of ground pepper in a dish supposed to serve four people. It was nearly inedible--but when made with about one-fifth the pepper, it was spicy and delicious.
A lot of effort went into the photos and production of this book. Too bad no one took the time to vet the recipes. Still worth a try if you're willing to take the mearements as suggestions and have the experience to adjust them.
