I want them all. This book has to go back to the library and it's making me cry that I haven't had the time or ingredients to make each and every delectable sounding shake in this book. I love Ried's fearless and playful sense of flavor combination, the photos were well-done, and the recipes crystal clear. I'm going to have to buy a copy of this. Probably two copies, as I anticipate spilling syrup all over one of them. Recommended without reservation to milkshake people.

The writing is more than a bit cheesy, but in a cookbook, it's the ideas that matter, and this one makes me want to go out and grab ingredients mid-sentence.
Amazing and inspiring. However, be prepared for many trips to your chicest, most gourmand grocery store: nearly every recipe in this book calls for sorbet, particularly chocolate and coffee. Densely flavorful, sorbet is the couture of icy desserts; you'll pay a steep price for it, but the resulting milkshakes will repay you sumptuously.

This was really interesting. I didn't realize there was so much history behind milkshakes. And yes, I sat and read the entire book in one sitting. Can't wait to try some of the recipes!
Every milkshake in this book sounded absolutely devine. I am going to have to either keep it continually checked out of the library, or break down and purchase my own copy.
Seriously...what's not to love about a milkshake cookbook?
Easy, inventive recipes and great photos.
