This is for hot process soapmaking. Boone invented crock pot hot process soapmaking. This book was published in 2003 and was the first book to outline this process.

Some of the tables were labeled incorrectly, but the explanation was correct above the table, so it was easy enough to figure out (amounts of distilled water for making up recipes). This is a great book for beginning and provides pictures for most steps of the process so you can be relatively sure that things are going correctly. My soap did not look exactly like the picture when it was finished, but I turned to the FAQs section, and followed the advice there.

Great step-by-step instructions, with pictures, for the different soapmaking processes. Describes various ingredients and additives. Recipes don't seem to have the precision of some other texts.
