Excellent book. Just as informative as 'What Eistein Told His Cook 2'. Oh, hang on, it IS 'What Einstein Told His Cook 2', with a different title. Still it is cheaper than that edition, so I guess if you haven't already read it, this is A Good Thing. If you have read that one, I'd give this a miss and wait for a new collection. Though maybe they will publish a different book but with the same title just to totally confuse everyone.

HASH(0x9d7ca7bc) out of 5 stars Well, this is a first.... 6 Sept. 2012
By michibilly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well, I only gave this two stars and didn't read it... why? Well now, I bought this one and 'What Einstein Told His Cook 2' and much to my surprise, they are the same book; different covers and names but same content. Another reviewer said that he or she read all the books, but I only found three, and two are identical. This is very odd since they appear to have been published the same year; didn't notice if they are different publishers. Anyway......

Now having said that, I read the first one, 'What Einstein Told His Cook' and it was excellent. It's science in the kitchen for non-scientists and it's written just that way with a good smattering of humor to boot.

HASH(0x9d19fe40) out of 5 stars same book, diferent title 16 Dec. 2012
By sci fi kid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Michibilly is totally correct in his/her review!
Just use "click to look inside". You will see that this book published in 2012
and "What Einstein Told His Cook 2" published in 1995 have ABSOLUTELY IDENTICAL
indexes! Somehow the 2012 version has 112 more pages...
Seems like a rip-off.

HASH(0xa01c39cc) out of 5 stars If you have "What Einstein Told His Cook 2: The Sequel: Further Adventures in Kitchen Science (v. 2)", don't buy! 14 Jan. 2014
By Big RWD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Same exact book as "What Einstein Told His Cook 2: The Sequel: Further Adventures in Kitchen Science (v. 2)" I wasted my money since I already have book 2 but will donate it my son's culinary high school.

HASH(0x9d1d03e4) out of 5 stars Same book as What Einstein Told His Cook 2 27 July 2014
By J. Bodnar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Do not buy this book and What Einstein Told His Cook 2: The Sequel: Further Adventures in Kitchen Science (v. 2). They are the exact same books just with different titles.
