"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Also, it uses a lot of equipment. I don't think there's been a recipe so far where I haven't had to make some adaptation due to not having something (and side note- halving the recipes is difficult. I have bad self-control when it comes to dessert so sometimes I want to make less in the first place.). Granted, I haven't been accumulating kitchen supplies very long- I've only had my own kitchen for about three years. But I think that if I did have all the equipment it wouldn't fit in my apartment.
There are some flavors that are surprisingly lacking in this book. Like, there are only one or two recipes that involve caramel. I don't think there's any mint. The primary flavors used are chocolate and butter- so many different types of chocolate cakes and brownies that it's redundant, multiple kinds of butter bars. There's also a lot of coffee, lemon, nuts, various fruits, spices. There are lots of basics too. Can't complain about the sheer quantity of recipes.
The table of contents does not list individual recipes, which is frustrating.
I'm glad I got this. I have lots of recipes bookmarked with the intention of making them later. If you don't want to put much effort into baking or if you care a lot about knowing what exactly you're going to get at the end of the baking process, this might not be for you.
Every recipe I've used so far has worked impeccably, due to the meticulous instructions (how often are you told to beat something for 10 seconds?), and turned out sublime.
Not for those on a diet, or those who have issues with portion control.
Or perhaps it's for those who have issues with portion control. It's not often that something that you eat the entire bowl (cake, batch) is actually worth the calories. :-D
