Really like this book. Agree with prior reviews of editing, and repeating of some items. Sure, it needs some updating, but there is so much information, it would be hard to utilize even a quarter of it. Examples inside are: 18 types of flour with descriptions; 3 most nutritious fruits; olive oil/butter have a low smoke point when cooking/sauteing, add another oil to it to extend it's life or breakdown; freezing intensifies flavor of certain spices listed. The tips go on and on. 33 Chapters devoted to food storage, baking, fats, sauces, potatoes, cheese, fish, sugar, additives, etc.
One thing that makes this book inconvenient to me was the indexing factor. If you remember reading something in the book and wanted to look it up later, you can (sometimes) find it in the index, but it lists about 20 pages where you can find that word. Then you have to read through a whole page to find the word. This can get laborious if 20 listings are mentioned. This reason makes it wise to highlight anything you think you may want to come back for - or mark your index.
This book is good for information though. I still recommend it (depending on the price), even with it's flaws.

I found the information in this book to be minimally useful, and worse, marred by a lack of careful editing. Example: "more livilier" or "more fresher." Also, consistent use of "your" when the author meant "you're." Also, many repetitions of the same "facts," often under the same subheading.
I find such problems reduce my trust in what the author has said. Once or twice is understandable. Repeated over and over, such carelessness truly diminishes the validity of the material in the book.
Overall, this book has the look and feel of a low-quality, self-published book. That's not a comment on the quality of self-published tomes -- many are outstanding and professionally done. This one, alas, is not.
In addition, many of what the author purports to be "facts" are now proven to be old, questionable suppositions, many of which have already fallen out of favor. Many of these are fat and cholesterol related myths from the past 20 years, and which have been updated or questioned or rethought in the past few years, especially in the light of the efficacy of new theories of eating high protein/low carbohydrate diets, for example.
In sum: This book seems like a quickly thrown-together reworking of old material that the author has simply quoted from the popular press -- not a good source for hard facts. I'd like to know that, like good cookbook writers, he has tested each of these hypotheses for himself.
Definitely would like to get my money back for this book.

Books are great gifts as this was to an old friend.

I have found Bader's book to be very interesting and full of stuff I didn't know. However, the editing is none too good- things are repeated in the same category; there are plenty of typos and word omissions, etc. Also, I'd like some idea whether his "hints" actually work or is he printing them to fill page space?
