Dr. Atkins New Diet Cookbook is not worth it. While I have found the diet to be interesting and effective, this book boasts an unattractive and difficult to navigate layout. Recipe selection is limited and many recipes are badly researched and often missing steps, as in the recipe for Lemon-lime mousse, which calls for 375ml of double cream that doesn't appear anywhere in the instructions for preparing the dessert. While lack of attention to detail is not new in Atkins related publications (did anyone else notice that the suggested 'induction menu' in the New Diet Revolution contained nuts, cottage cheese and several other items explicitly forbidden by induction rules earlier in the book?), this book really takes the low-carb cake, failing to state clearly whether carb counts in the recipes are total or net carbs (pretty important for the Atkins devotee). Furthermore, most of recipes serve 6-8, which is not terribly convenient when cooking for only one or two people. This book definitely provides some interesting and tasty recipes, but you're better off scouting the Atkins website for new recipes.

I like the hands-on approach of this book, introducing the reader to the basics of the Atkins diet and removing any fear of not having satisfying, even downright delicious meals. It's good to make a shopping list along the lines of each suggested weekly menu.

I would reccomend this book to anyone who, having read "Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution", would like a few more recipes to go along and a few surprises - like a great version of several ice cream flavours!

I bought this book to widen the types of dishes I could eat on the induction stage of the Atkins Diet. Although there are some good recipes in it, I have only used one, a sauce so far. This is mostly because the book is not laid out well and it is not easy to find induction recipes as they are scattered throughout the book. It's a shame as with a better layout it might have felt a better buy.
