I'm on my third copy of this book, which I've owned since it was first published. I've worn out two paperback copies, and this time, I decided to buy a hardcover copy. This is not only a cookbook filled with a huge variety of healthy, nutritious recipes, but also contains a wonderful array of helpful cooking tips, nutrition information, and lots of great ideas for ways to incorporate healthy foods into your lifestyle. This book changed the way I ate forever!

My sister-in-law gave me the paperback version of this cookbook when it came out in the 80s and it became my go-to source for new recipes. Unfortunately, it got rather worn (binder broken, covers torn, stains everywhere) so I was happy to find an inexpensive used hardback version in really good shape.

The book itself is divided into a section on healthy ingredients and then recipes using these, so it's a good reference book as well. In 25 years, I only found a few "duds" so I recommend it highly for people looking to eat healthy (there are also a lot of vegetarian recipes in it as well)

Most importantly, Jane Brody's cookbook is a fantastic cookbook. The recipes are easy to make, use common easy-to-get ingredients, are practical and DELICIOUS. The recipes are not exotic in nature, but just modified enough to keep the dishes interesting but healthy. It has also passed the test of time, surviving a list of misguided diet fads, including Atkins, South Beach, and so forth. Her nutritional guidelines and suggestions are sensible and readily manageable. Don't let the age of this book put you off its purchase. I just purchased a copy because I totally wore out my first copy.

I bought one of the first editions of this book and every time I look through it, I find another recipe I want to try out. I just made her curried chicken recipe for Christmas dinner and guests: just as good or better than any restaurant! I got many kudos and raves and it was the first time I had ever made curry. The carbs are nutritionally and tastefully combined. I actually came here tonight to try to find a hard copy of it! It is by far my favorite cookbook!

Very disappointed in the "used" book I received - it was supposed to be in good shape, but the cover was ripped. Was going to give it as a gift, but too embarrassed to! The cookbook is good, but I guess it's worth buying it new...
