Great book, but go hardback
on November 11, 2013
I like the book and the recipes. Good solid diet advice, great food, well worth the retail price.
However, if you have a choice, I would strongly recommend the hardback version. Why? Because the pages in the paperback fall out. I've never seen a cookbook so poorly bound. The paper is also very slick, similar to the paper used in National Geographic magazine, only thinner. If food falls on it, it's like a sponge. My copy, (purchased new on Amazon) was published by the Countryman Press in Vermont, and really, they should be embarrassed to put their name on it.
Note: The book just slipped off the table onto the floor and ALL the pages came loose from the binding. I think they forgot the glue. I have never handled the hardback version, but it's got to be better.
I wouldn't recommend the Kindle version either. I don't like Kindle versions of cookbooks in general, but the diet book has forms to fill out to help dieters track their progress, find inspiration and motivation. It's a cookbook, yes, but also a workbook.
