5.0 out of 5 stars Classic in the Making, 30 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don’t think I’ve put so many highlights in a Kindle book as I have with this one.

IA and UX professionals will find much that resonates and enlightens.

Every reader will be drawn in by the open personal stories and by the fascinating linking of ideas from great thinkers.

Sometimes the closing paragraphs of a great non-fiction book seem to contain the most dense and meaningful ideas. This book has that quality throughout.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wireless is Annoying, 25 Mar 2013
You will save time when this printer does print wirelessly. All that saved time will be used in trying to get the wireless to work, resetting it etc.

It is not possible to scan to computer over wireless. Or at least it is unclear how to set the printer up to do this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good food ideas but poor BBQ info, 24 Feb 2013
Despite the annoying, unfunny, jokey style, there are some great recipes and the photographs are lovely. But do not buy as a guide to good barbecuing as the instructions are limited and not that helpful.


Cutting It Fine: Inside the Restaurant Business
Cutting It Fine: Inside the Restaurant Business
by Andrew Parkinson
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as revealing as I had hoped, 11 Aug 2008
Reads like an unedited transcript of a middle-of-the-road chef boring on into a tape recorder. Lacks the charisma, stories and surprises of Bordain. Too many statements of the obvious. I'm sure that it does capture the reality of most kitchens. Unfortunately, the reality of most kitchens isn't very interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and full of good ideas and information, 1 Jun 2008
Particularly good on understanding taste to make you a better cook. He encourages you to really think and feel about what you're cooking. The results are much more satisfying for it.

I've enjoyed cooking much more since I read this great book. Some good samples on his website too, so you can get a taste of this before buying.
