A good book, not brilliantly organised
on 2 March 2012
I feel a little mean with my three stars here - I'd certainly give the book four for what's actually in here. Nigel Slater's cover quote is bang on - the books is intelligent, thoughtful and fascinating. The trouble is, it's also pretty badly laid out. The amount of cross-referencing required to work your way through it is significant. I'd still thoroughly recommend getting hold of a copy, but it's frustrating all the same and certainly limits my enjoyment and use of it.
