This review is from: The America's Test Kitchen Cookbook (Hardcover)
These books are great! I love my Cooks' Illustrated Books and use them all the time. My one and only complaint is that they have now published the Best Recipe series and now the Test Kitchen books and they don't have enough recipes to fill them each one with enough unique recipes to distinguish one book from another.
A few repetitions is understandable, but they have gone way over the top. If you buy more than two of these books, the third is bound to be composed of a third the recipes from each of the first two. Same test info, everything. This only leaves 1/3 of the recipes as original.
Because of this, I say look carefully before deciding which one from this series you purchase unless you want multiple copies of the same testing articles and recipes.

I agree with you. It is disappointing to find so many recipes that you already have in one or two or more of their other cookbooks. My other annoyance is that even though I subscriabe to their magazine and sometimes magazines and buy their cookbooks I still have to pay to have the online service. I still love theri magazine and the way that they approach cooking.
