Oh how I love this book. I read about it on NPR and my hubby bought it for me for Christmas. I love knowing the science behind baking and cooking. I think it all started when I moved to a much more humid climate and couldn't get my favorite cookie recipe to work (the Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe). I was so sad because they were so, so good. Since that time, I had been on a quest to fix them. The funny thing about this book is that it directly addressed the recipe and gave the history of why it doesn't turn out and described how I could fix it. I've only made a few of the recipes because they are seriously intense but it is so much fun for me to learn about the hows and whys. Oh, and the recipes that I have tried are pretty amazing.
