This book is wonderful and hilarious.

I love that there are a lot of "ok, so this is how it is now. So this time, fix the thing this way. For next time here's how to do it completely differently" I really appreciate that.

Also, it's just funny. For example, it says that to revive wilting green onions to "simply stick the root end in the ground and it will take root and grow healthy again. This does not, alas, work with most other things, including human beings."

Tee hee!
Well, I like this book. It's not 100% comprehansive in solutions to "unlucky" cooking, but in the cases where help can be given, it's there - though as with all cooking solutions, it's only as effective as a knowledgeable cook can apply it. That's all that can be hoped for in a book like this.
I rarely find a book that is both extremely practical and absolutely hilarious, but this one is both. I want a copy!
I laughed my butt off on page 1 of the intro and am looking forward to using the advice.

Useful, funny, and surprisingly not that weird -- you won't have to try to hunt down specialty devices and ingredients.
