This book had everything I was looking for in it and in language that you can understand rather than the technical terminology so often used.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for beginners. 12 Feb 2013
By Melissa Pruss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Was recommended to me as a great place to start out, so I bought the book and worked through it in merely a couple weeks and the advice provided was excellent. Moved on to all-natural, organic soapmaking to combine with the natural botanical personal care line we already have. Though most I already knew and I had an advantage with the existing skills and experiences, if I had tried to wing it on my own without this book, I likely would still be toiling away, making dopey mistakes instead of making beautiful all-natural cold-process soaps in only a couple weeks after starting out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 19 Dec 2012
By Megan Rate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this and "the Natural Soap Book" at the same time, and think they're a good combo for people just starting out. Combined they give two points of view, and while many of the basics are the same, it gives alternative POV's and ideas that I think are important to have. Simple and easy to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview for the beginner soapmaker. 3 Aug 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fairly comprehensive book on soapmaking, including cold process, hot process (crockpot), liquid and cream soapmaking.

I've been making cold process for about a year now, and have already experimented with many of the recipes and swirling techniques. Grosso provides a great overview, but the lack of pictures in the book seems odd. Also, personal quibble: I was surprised to see sections devoted to acne soap and "oily skin" soap in a book which encourages soapmakers to sell. Unless you submit your soap for testing, you can never put a claim on soap saying that it cures or treats a medical condition -- making claims turns your soap into a drug, and I imagine most home-based soapmakers aren't ready to jump through that labeling hoop.

I purchased this book for its section on cream soap (and to a certain extent, liquid soap) -- I haven't yet made up a batch, but I found the directions and explanations to be clear and easy to follow. Just for those chapters, I'm happy to have this book in my library.

The main reason why this is not a five-star review is for the lack of pictures or even diagrams -- some of these techniques are visual and it seems odd to not even have line drawings.
