really liked it

If you're looking for a "how-to" book then this book isn't for you. It is really just the story of a foodie dad who doesn't want to give up eating the things he likes best just because he has a small child. It is a very good story, though. It is well written and funny - LOL kind of funny. I could be biased though. He has the same basic philosophy for feeding children that I have. For example, he respects his daughter's food preferences, but won't fix a separate meal just for her. He isn't afraid of fat or sugar, and he thinks "nut-free" schools are silly. He feeds his family the way I do, or, at least, the way I would if I was a food writer living in Seattle. The recipes he includes in the book all sound tasty and two that I've tried so far have both been pretty good. All in all, a great book.
