On the recipes: he spends less space on how to use it than arguing why to use it. I've never tried Indonesian/Hawaiian cuisine and the recipes come mostly from those cultures (India, too). No recipes were altered or retrofitted from simple American cooking, which I would've appreciated even more. I'm not often in the mood for a luau; I would like to know if/how I can bake with coconut oil, and some workable rules of thumb for substituting CO for common fats in cooking/baking. (And more than their smoke points in a graph. I don't know what to do with that in terms of adapting existing recipes I love). So I'm still looking for the right book, but this was a start. There are also homemade natural skin creams, lip balm and hair conditioning mask recipes which sound interesting but in practical terms, not why I bought this. I doubt I'll be referring to it in the future, so for me, it's okay but not the be-all-and-end-all reference on coconut oil properties and usage I hoped for, though it confirmed ad nauseam that CO is a good oil to get more of each day.
