This cookbook changed my life (and unfortunately, my pants size, but that is temporary). A fabulous book with excellent, easy-to-follow recipes that will have you baking like a pro in no time, the Miette Bakery Cookbook has excellent tips for cakes, Parisienne macaron (the reason I bought the book), ganache, butter creme, etc. The book starts with an introduction to technique, lists tools to be purchased, stores to source ingredients, and then presents recipes in a very step-by-step manner with beautiful pictures. Plus, the edges are scalloped which is really pretty. I can now make macaron in various flavors; have successfully made butter creme without it separating, and have a store of ganache. Plus, my family, co-workers, and my friends are really happy. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
