Comprehensive ... each recipe in the book includes useful tips and suggestions for variations or substitutes. (Tammy Minn Healthy Cooking)
Recipes are clear and easy to follow. When you make your own they are very fresh, affordable and absolutely delicious. I have been making cheesecakes for about 25 years and this book supplied me with quite a bit of helpful information regarding the basics. My family raved about it and also had to double-check that it was homemade since it turned out so fabulous they couldn't tell if it was store bought or not. (www.backyardbbq.cc.com 2010-07-21)

Although I have only tried one of the recipes (Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake), I believe that as I work through the rest of the recipes, they will all be as amazing as this one. I took this one to my family Thanksgiving dinner and everyone just LOVED it!
Be sure to read pages 8 through 20 (especially "Basic Techniques for a Perfect Cheesecake"). I have been making cheesecakes for about 25 years and this book supplied me with quite a bit of helpful information regarding the basics.
The book has plenty of pictures as well as 13 recipes for sauces/toppings to serve over your finished cheesecake.
I can't wait to try more-next on my list are the Turtle Cheesecake and the French Apple Cheesecake.
Covers both sweet and savory cheesecakes which is nice.
Includes simple recipes for things like sauces.
The cheesecake photos aren't actually next to the recipe. The recipe for a mixed berry cheesecake has the photo for an apricot cheesecake opposite it.
The measurements are listed by volume in both metric and standard and takes shortcuts. There's no reason to list ingredients like cream cheese by volume and the alternate units should be grams not milliliters. My book is now heavily annotated with measurements by mass.
There's little general theory on how to construct a cheesecake. Each recipe has its own crust, filling and topping and more general theory would help one create new stuff. How about "here are 10 different crusts you can do".
I'd stick with print outs from web pages. Paying to have this arrangement of recipes doesn't strike me as worth it.
This book is a must have. Especially for people like me who has no talent for deriving different recipes from a single source, I needed this book. Just skimming over the titles of the recipes I cried. George Geary did a fabulous job in compliling so many wonderful treats from just one...
Today, I will be making the Farmers Cheesecake, then for my siblings birthday, the Berry Berry Berry Cheesecake, and who knows after that. I just might purchase his Cheesecake bible.
Highly enjoy and recommend this book. He makes it so easy... Thanks George Geary.
Thanks Amazon! Great service as usual.
I'm glad that Geary included a bunch of no bake recipes which is so convenient to make when you don't have much time to bake....the chocolate mocha chunk no bake cheesecake was spectacular! I also particularly liked his selection of nutty cheesecakes and tropical ones such as the pina colada.
